Mini8 8 Loop Plastics Controller

Brand: Eurotherm
Does not ship to United States

The Mini8 Plastics Controller is a pre-configured version of the standard Mini8 multiloop and data acquisition unit.

It can control up to 8 temperature zones, each configurable as heat only or heat-cool.

The Eurotherm cooling algorithm can be optimized for fan or water cooling ensuring optimum control even at high extruder speeds.

The Mini8 controller can multi-drop on either Serial, Fieldbus or Ethernet communications and offers a cost effective alternative to performing control loops in a PLC.

By devolving control to the Mini8 instrument the PLC can concentrate on providing fast and effective logic control without the processing burden of running complex control algorithms.

Relieving the PLC of these functions can significantly reduce the total system cost including PLC hardware, signal conditioners, configuration and commissioning.
