West Control Solutions has launched the MAXVU temperature controller. The company says that the easy-to-use, compact controller offers users super-fast setup that can be achieved in less than 60 seconds. MAXVU is a suitable choice for straightforward applications where only the fundamental control elements are required.

According to the company, users that have simple temperature control requirements will see real time-saving benefits from using the new MAXVU controller.

With a short setup menu and default parameters populated for common applications, it is possible to configure the controller for the majority of applications in under 60 seconds, saving users valuable time.

Typical applications include packaging tray and bag sealers, textiles applications such as seam sealing and thermal bonding, as well as processes in the food and beverage sector including fryers, micro-breweries and chocolate tempering.

Key product features

  • Large display.
  • 18mm upper digit and 10.2mm lower digit height in a 48mm high device offers increased clarity and visibility.
  • 96x48mm unit is also available with 18mm digits upper and lower.
  • A side configuration port is available that allows users to connect to a graphic or wizard-driven configuration software package to further simplify set-up.
  • The software supports cloning to help with the programming of multiple units.
  • At 67mm, the shorter depth means increased space behind the panel and improved access to the large rear terminals making the unit much easier to wire.
