Space and Time Savings: The 3340/3380 can control up to a maximum of 8 channels in a compact 1/4 DIN package. The 1/4 DIN controller reduces panel size and panel cutouts. By increasing zone density, the 3340/3380 can now make PID temperature control for 3 to 8 zones affordable in a multi-loop form factor, aiding designers of control equipment to save labor costs, installation costs, electric panel size, and operation cost.
In comparison to other multi-loop packages, the 3340/3380 has a straight forward user interface that does not require a PLC programmer or other support hardware to operate. The display, pushbuttons, outputs and software are integrated in this single multi-loop package.
Although all inputs are scanned at least once per second, the display of the 3340/3380 will display the temperatures of each channel on an adjustable scan rate so the operator can view all channels without touching any pushbuttons.
Heater Break Alarm: Alarm 2 can be ordered as a Heater Break Alarm. For loads with multiple heaters this feature alarms when individual heaters fail. This provides maintenance of a process before the problem becomes critical.
Multi-Memory Area: Temperature set point, PID constants, alarm set point, ramp to set point rate, channel used/unused for each loop can be stored in a “memory area”. The eight memory area allows for quick changes to alternate processes or products. The memory area can be selected via the front faceplate or digital inputs.
