The DIN Rail Temperature/Process Controller, Series SCD, offers multiple PID loops in a compact size. Each SCD-1000 master controller can be combined with up to seven SCD-2000 slave controllers without any wires. Each controller has one universal input, one relay output, and one user selected output.
The Series SCD can be used with a Mini-Node™ Signal Converter for applications such as: oven, boiler, or chiller control; packaging equipment; environmental chambers; medical equipment; or food service equipment. The Mini-Node™ converter, Model MN-1, is a low cost device that converts half duplex RS-485 serial communications signals into a signal that can be read by any computer with a USB port.
