Spang Power Electronics' 1051, 1052 and 1053 Series digital SCR power controllers include standard and advanced temperature control features. A thermocouple (T/C) input for Type B, C, E, J, K, N , R, S, or T is provided on the 1050 Series auxiliary I/O option board which allows a direct temperature control feature. For ordering purposes, the option board can be specified with the 1050 part number.

Within Spang's web browser configuration tool, the thermocouple input can be set to not used, monitor only, limit temperature, or control temperature.

Some of the standard temperature control features include:
  • Monitor, Control, or Limit Temperature
  • Automatic and Manual Control Modes
  • Temperature PID Loop and Ramp Settings
  • Alarm and Fault Settings
  • Temperature units in ºC or ºF
A more advanced temperature feature included in the 1050 Series is Recipe Mode. Initially the user will set up a series of ramp and soak segments, thus defining the “recipe”. The user can play, pause, stop or reset the recipe from the controls within the configuration tool, via a Spang LDC color display, over a network communication platform (Ethernet, Profinet, etc.), or via hard-wire digital input contacts.
