Chromalox has released what it describes as a sophisticated 1/16 DIN single loop temperature and process controller. According to the company, the 6060 controller features two PID sets, multiple inputs and outputs, heat/cool operation, soft start function, self-tuning startup and optional Modbus/RTU RS485 communications.

The two PID sets ensure reliable control over a wide set-point range. Separate PIDs for heat and cool strategies optimise control and stability. A universal and an optional input plus four digital inputs combined with six outputs provide extensive I/O flexibility. Additionally, 16 operational profiles are possible, each having 16 segments.

Typical applications of the controller include industrial ovens and furnaces, boiler and steam processes, heat treatment, plastics, extrusion and rubber, packaging, chiller and refrigeration systems, laboratory and test equipment, and food and beverage.

Scott Treser, director of controls and panel development for Chromalox, stated that available configuration software simplifies and hastens setup of the 6060 controller. "With this software, users can not only configure control parameters, but they can also simulate control operations to test settings before applying them." He added that the 6060 controller offers two and three point temperature control that facilitates: on/off, heat only, heat/cool and valve motor drive (VMD) control schemes.
