Temperature
Process controllers and DIN rail temperature controllers monitor and control temperature, defrost, and fan cycles. Dwyer offers selections of transmitters, thermostats, digital panel mount, limit switches, mechanical switches and thermometers available in dial, spirit filled, or digital.

QUESTIONS

Question
The DPMA-502 panel meter, what is the environmental rating? NEMA 1?
Answer
The Series DPMA doesn't have a NEMA rating.
Question
How many wires do the RTD versions of the TE Series Temperature Sensors have?
Answer
The TE Series Temperature Sensors are all two-wire sensors for both the thermistors and RTD’s.
Question
We would like to use the ILA transmitter along side a photoeye that senses when the part is present so we can record the temperature. The photoeye operates at 880 nm. Would there be interference between the two instruments?
Answer
There shouldn’t be any interference since the ILA In-Line IR Sensor has a spectral response of 8 to 14 microns (8,000-14,000 nm).
Question
I have a LOVE 8C controller and am using the Controller Communication Utility (Model SCD-SW Configuration & Monitoring Software) to record data being sent to the PC through the USB cable. The data is displaying and recording, however all I can do to replay the data is to literally watch a video of the data as it was recorded. I am monitoring reactions that are hours long and it would be very helpful to model the data in Excel so that I can look at exotherms, manipulate the data quickly, etc. Is there a setting I am missing to export the data to time and temperature data points, or is this feature unavailable in the software. If unavailable, is there an update in the works to add the export data to excel function. Right now the software is slightly helpful, but not a strong "industry leading" type of software I would expect from Dwyer.
Answer
Version 1.0.5.0 now supports exporting the logged data to a .csv file. Previous versions of the software do not support this feature.
Question
In the Series 16A the option 936 = Set Point/Process Signal Output 0-10 VDC My Question Is "What Is This Option Used For"?
Answer
The -936 option on the 16A is most commonly used to remotely monitor a process (for instance, in a different room). An additional panel meter with a 0-10 volt input will allow you to do this. It can also be used as an input to another controller that runs a different system (off of the same process transmitter, for instance).
