Eurotherm EPC3000 Controller
Helping deliver an efficient and secure process with the Eurotherm EPC3000 controller. The EPC3000 range of programmable single loop process and temperature controllers maximizes efficiency and repeatability. It is certified for cybersecurity communications robustness. In addition, Eurotherm EPC3000 has a high visibility LCD three color multifunction display type. Standard operating temperature for this product is 32 to 131°F (0 to 55°C).
Accuracy and Repeatability
Process inputs are fast and accurate with exceptional thermal stability. This aides precise and consistent control over long periods without calibration drift. Moreover, Moreover, recalibration and user calibration correction functions are available to further improve accuracy.
The industry leading Eurotherm PID algorithm delivers fast reacting and repeatable control and is an enhancement in the EPC3000 range to further reduce overshoot. Rapid rise to operating temperature and low oscillation helps improve yield. In summary, PID settings may be adjusted to suit specific process operating regions, helping deliver optimum performance.
Connectivity and Cybersecurity
Eurotherm EPC3000 Programmable Controller range is Ethernet enabled as standard and is the first Eurotherm controller to be designed and certified to meet the stringent cybersecurity requirements of Achilles® Communications Robustness Testing Level 1. Ethernet communications have support via a standard RJ45 connector. This provides fast access to process and diagnostic information as well as connectivity to external PLCs, SCADA systems and IIoT technologies.
Eurotherm EPC3000 Programmable Controller
Modbus RTU serial communication is also supported.
A PC-based configuration app, Eurotherm iTools, you may download free of charge for use with Ethernet or Serial Modbus, or with an optional USB connector. The USB connector powers the instrument for convenient desktop configuration.
