The C4X Multiple Zone PID Controller is the
brains of the C4 controller, but with the capability
to drive even larger loads. The controller
features four universal main process inputs,
two digital inputs, and two configurable relay
alarm outputs as standard, so you get the same
benefits as the C4 when greater loads are required.
When even more flexibility is required,
the C4X controller can be customized with
four analog inputs, and up to four configurable
outputs. The C4X boasts an extremely slim 1” wide footprint
capable of either DIN rail mounting
or direct panel mount, making it ideal for
With a default Modbus RTU/RS485 communications
port and option for second port from
a variety of different communication protocols
including Modbus TCP, Profibus, ProfiNet,
Real Time Ethernet (Ethernet IP), DeviceNet,
EtherCat, and CANopen, the C4X can be fully
integrated into any host PLC network or DCS.
Like the C4, the fieldbus card can be installed at
the time of order, or field installed at any time.

While the C4X includes diverse process control
capability, it also features efficient thermal and
electrical monitoring, allowing users to anticipate
failures and malfunctions so corrective
steps can be taken in a timely manner.
With an option for independent current transformer
input on each zone, full diagnostics can
be performed from loop break alarm, heater
break, SSR short circuit, input opening or short
circuit, and even over temperature alarm.
The C4X also features the powerful and detailed
C-PWR configuration software, which allows
you to run trends, save historical data and read
or write device parameters quickly and easily.
Configurations may be saved locally for later
retrieval or sent across a network for cloning of
other units. This significantly reduces mistakes
and system setup time.
The C4-OP local interface display is a great tool
to use when remote programming or monitoring
isn’t enough. It is comprised of a Lexan
membrane, IP65 display, including three 4-digit
displays, and a 2-digit display. A total of 6
function keys allow navigation through the C4-
OP software menus and adjustment of process
parameters on the spot.
Its built-in memory gives users the ability to
save complete configurations for up to ten C4
family devices, which can then be uploaded to
a PC for seamless integration with the C-PWR
software. The opposite is also true if users
prefer to download C-PWR settings on to the
C4-OP, making this controller an ideal addition
for routine plant maintenance where local programming
and monitoring is necessary.
With no external power requirements, the C4-
OP is powered directly from the C4 host device
and can either be DIN rail mounted, or installed
directly on the front panel of the enclosure
where permanent installations are required.
With its minimal footprint, the C4-OP continues
the compact trend of the C4 family.
