Why is Physical Size important when selection a controller for Pressure, Temperature, Level or Flow?
The physical size of the controller may be important to you where
- You are replacing an existing controller and have an exitsing panel cut out to match
- A short format controller can reduces the overall depth of the control panel
- A large bright display will make it easier to read from a distance
Which ever of the above is important to you, we have a the right size of Fuji Electric controller to suit.
The industry tends to use DIN terminology to describe the size of the front face of panel mounted controllers. The following table provides an explanation of this terminology with dimensions shown in mm. For completeness we have also shown the Fuji Electric models that satisfy the DIN sizes.
|Width x Height
|Panel Cut out size (W x H)
|Fuji Electric Models
|Length Behind the panel (mm)
|48mm x 15mm
|45mm x 22.2mm
|45mm x 45mm
|48mm x 96mm
|45mm x 92mm
|72mm x 72mm
|69mm x 69mm
|96mm x 96mm
|92mm x 92mm
|PXR9, PXG9, PXH9
|96mm x 192mm
|92mm x 190mm
Physical size may also be important if you require a "behind the panel" controller that is mounted on a DIN rail. In this case Fuji Electric offer the PUM range of controllers.
Many of the controllers on the market use lots of technical jargon when describing a controller. This doesn't make it easy to compare devices. At Coulton we are committed to finding the most cost effective, long term solution to your controller needs and would be only too pleased to understand your application and explain any of the features before making a recommendation.
|Fuji PXE for OEMs
The PXE Controller is a very from very simple, low cost device, which is dedicated for temperature control.
To universal input, software configurable, multi-loop controllers that are capable of controlling small areas of your process (CCM).
Basic controllers like the PXE controller (ideal for OEMs) or the PXR series of controllers are suitable for use with simple "Type k" thermocouples or PT100 temperature probes. They can also provide on/off switching of heater loads and provide alarm outputs.
If cost is your main consideration and you would like a controller to be available for next day delivery from our stock, then we would recommend the PXR family of controllers as being the most suitable. If you are a machine builder and require reliability from a low cost unit then the Fuji PXE might be the best choice.
|Where you have a process that requires fast response and you would like to be able to add some digital input and output switching, in addition to standard PID, or Fuzzy logic control. We would recommend the PXG family of controllers. These provide a competitive solution to mid range applications and are available with custom front panels for OEM customers.
|Where applications are more demanding and require the processing of up to 3 inputs to be used in the control rational the PXH family of controllers would be our recommendation. This family provides fast processing times which are suitable for the control of pressure and flow applications.
The Fuji Electric TimeRY brings together Logic, Timers and Power Relays in one unit.
