The soft start feature is selectable which
allows this controller to be employed in nonheat
trace applications as well.
All process conditions may be monitored
and managed both locally and remotely. All
process variable, communication and alarm
settings and security codes are user-adjustable
via simple page menu navigation.
In terms of system supervision, the ITC
controller monitors temperature, current load
and ground fault equipment protection leakage
current (GFEP). Additionally, the alarms
on the ITC consist of high and low temperature,
high and low current, high GFEP current
and sensor failure.
Should the ITC unit realize a failed sensor,
the controller automatically switches into a
user adjustable manual output duty cycle. To
eliminate abrupt current spikes, the Chromalox
ITC employs bumpless transfer power
switching when switching over from either
manual or auto mode.
The ITC unit is housed in a compact 10” x
8” x 6” (26cm x 21cm x 15cm) wall mountable,
NEMA 4X FG enclosure and it features
a high resolution TFT display, LED indication
of Load, Power & Alarm status for each
circuit and front panel capacitive touch user
interface buttons which are mounted on a
The ITC enclosure provides electrical connections
for the heating cable, the AC Power and
the RTD Sensors and it comes complete with
