New standard in our customary quality - KT.R temperature controllers

April 01, 2016 New Product Introductions

The temperature controllers of the KT.R series are the successors of the KT series controllers KT2, KT4, KT7, KT8, KT9. Customers benefit from a remarkable enhancement of features such as fast and easy operation, simplified configuration and functionality, visibility of the display, and a compact design, among other things.

The new and improved temperature controllers are available in the three DIN formats 48x48mm, 48x96mm, and 96x96mm. Adhering to proven standards helps to meet market demands for cost-effectiveness and offers economy and high performance.

Easy configuration and adjustment of settings

The temperature controller is ready for operation once the initial configuration of control values has been completed. Frequently used and frequently changed settings are easily adjusted. Not much time and effort is needed to establish a smoothly operating temperature control system. All required operations can be set with the help of the buttons on the front.

Easy programming

Programming is easy thanks to a nine-step setting procedure. Simply enter target values for each time period. Full flexibility of the temperature control system is guaranteed.

Fine control of heat capacity

Thanks to the high-speed processing with 125ms, the sampling period of the new KT.R series is only half of that of the previous series. With a responsiveness twice as fast as before, it is possible to carry out a much finer control of the heat capacity, for example.

Built-in auto-tuning function

The built-in auto-tuning function uses the step-response method. From the temperature rise behavior alone, it can calculate the PID constants. It is even possible to calculate constants when auto tuning cannot be used to generate them. Because an ON / OFF operation is unnecessary, there is no disruption in temperature control. The highly accurate PID control mode ensures an input span of ±0.2%.
