The C4 Series Multiple Zone SCR Power Controller
manages both single phase and 3-phase
industrial healing load applications which
require zero cross firing modes. Load options
include up to 4 independently controlled single
phase loads or two 3-phase/2-Leg load or one
3-phase/3-leg load (with or without an additional
single phase load).
The controller features four universal main
process inputs, two digital inputs, and two
configurable alarm outputs as standard to accommodate
a variety of process needs. When
more flexibility is required, the C4 controller
can be customized with four analog inputs, and
up to four configurable outputs.
Despite the four independent zones, the C4 still
boasts a compact footprint, with options for
either DIN rail mounting or direct panel mount.
Modbus RTU/RS485 communications are outfitted
by default, but with PLC’s and integrated
networks being commonplace, the C4 can host
a number of additional fieldbus communications
including Modbus TCP, Profibus, ProfiNet,
Ethernet IP, DeviceNet, EtherCat, and CANopen.
Each of these fieldbus cards can be installed at
time of order or outfitted at a later date. This
makes it extremely easy to adapt the C4 to any
Complete Process Control Package
While the C4 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 each zone outfitted with an independent
current transformer, 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 C4 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 C-PWR Configuration Software permits efficient programming of the following Chromalox SCR power controllers: CTF, CTF-Xtra, C4, C4-IR, CFW, and CFW-Xtra. It will facilitate the cloning of multiple controllers and fast parameter file uploads and downloads to and from the controller and PC.
Parameter value settings may be entered via the master table or through the Setup Wizard which methodically walks you through the main screens. Use the C-PWR Configuration Software Manual for program installation and connection details. To program your specific SCR controller, use the appropriate controller programming manual.
Current Release Version: 1.3.0
(Note: New configuration software releases occur without notice. If you need to update your release, you must first uninstall your current version prior to installing the latest release. This may be done in Programs and Features located in the Windows Control Panel.)
