The CMC-99 compact, multi-channel controller features a touch-screen display and is suitable for the simultaneous measurement and control of a variety of process-manufacturing applications.

The controller, from Impress Sensors and Systems, provides a range of input and output combinations to suit individual customer requirements.

The three card slots on the reverse of the controller each comprise 16 I/O pin options, which enable the user to choose any combination of inputs and outputs to suit the application.

For example, up to 48 analogue current or voltage inputs, up to 16 relay/SSR outputs, 24 thermocouple inputs, 12 RTD inputs or a combination of these could be used.

The unit also incorporates a 24V DC digital input, enabling relays and triggers to be set up.

The CMC-99 is suitable for a range of process applications, including centralised temperature measurement and control; multi-zone heating control; intermediate pumping-station control; spraying and heating control for greenhouses; control of industrial furnaces and incinerators; and for engine test cell measurements.

Measuring 96 x 96 x 100mm, the controller housing is very compact, which means the unit can be installed in restricted spaces.

The controller has a 3.5in backlit colour TFT display and is based on the Linux operating system, with touch-screen menu navigation.

A USB interface is provided on the front of the device, enabling the user to upload or download software programs quickly and easily via a USB memory stick.

The controller is available in two power-supply versions – 230 or 24V AC/DC.

An auxiliary 24V DC/200mA supply output on the back of the unit enables external sensors and actuators to be connected and powered by the controller.

The CMC-99 can also act as a PID process controller, providing a reliable control-loop feedback mechanism for a variety of process-temperature and pressure-control applications.

The CMC-99 also comes with a number of communications interfaces, including two RS485 ports, two RS232, a second USB Host and an Ethernet connection, allowing the controller to integrate easily with the customer’s existing process-control networks and fieldbuses.

The CMC-99’s integral software provides the user with archiving, printing and visualisation options.

A variety of visual presentation display options for recorded measurements is available, including numerical display, bar-graph or needle-gauge display.

The CMC-99 is also available with a transparent, lockable door to IP42.

An IP65 version is supplied with an additional fitted moulded frame.
