The PC320 Process Controller is reliable, accurate and suitable for measuring any type of 2 and 3 wire sensors with 4-20 mA, 0-1 volt and 0-5 volt outputs. It comes pre-programmed for use with 12 different common sensor types and appropriate selectable engineering units. In addition, the PC320 can be programmed by the user to monitor any type of custom sensor in any user defined units. Custom user defined engineering units are also programmable for all standard sensor types. Both 2-point and 3-point calibration methods are supported and an additional 3rd order polynomial equation can be applied to the sensor data to correct for non-linearities in sensor output. The polynomial mode is useful for calculating other parameters based on a non-linear sensor reading such as calculating water flow rate from water level.
The process controller's LCD display shows what type of sensor is being monitored, the data reading averaged over a user programmable time period, and the engineering units selected. The display also shows the current On or Off state for each of the 4 relays. Two other display modes are available. One shows the maximum and minimum sensor readings since last reset. Another mode displays the current state of any of the 4 relays in real time, the sensor reading that caused the last triggering event, and the On or Off time remaining in the control cycle. The LCD display can be backlit for easy viewing at all times and offers a power saving mode for limiting current drain in battery powered applications.
