The 853 three phase power controller allows for real-time readings of voltage, current, power and fault conditions, as well as for real-time setpoint changes to adjust power levels for process requirements. The controller provides complete user customizing capabilities without rewiring or adding additional components. Spang also offers an expanded feature set for the 853 controller that includes network communications and digital display options.
