1/8 DIN Temperature/Process Controller
Vertical Mount, Dual Control Output, RS-485 Communication

Vertical Mount, Dual Control Output, RS-485 Communication

The Series 8B 1/8 DIN Temperature/Process Controller offers versatility and reliability for temperature and process monitoring applications. Designed as a vertical mount 1/8 DIN controller, the Series 8B features dual outputs, universal input, and up to three additional alarm outputs. The second output can be configured as a third alarm output. Select the alarm type from 13 different preprogrammed alarm functions. Control methods include ON/OFF, PID, auto-tune or manual tune. PID control is supported with 64 ramp/soak control actions. RS-485 communication is standard on the Series 8B with up to 247 available addresses.
