Base Load Controller Datasheeet

MODEL BLC SERIES
BASE-LOAD-CONTROLLER
Base-Load-Controller with 2 to 32 Outputs
The BLC Series Base-Load-Controller is microprocessor based and designed to control up to
31 base loads plus one SCR controlled load.
Mechanically, it consists of two assemblies:
the controller module (1 required) and the eight
channel output module (1 to 4 required).
DIP switches allow the user to easily program
for the number of base loads, (whether or not
an SCR controlled base load will be used) and
which control mode (up/down or circular) will
be used. Potentiometers provide easy adjustments for cycle time and input/output analog
signals i.e. 4-20mA. Diagnostic indicators
indicate operational status.
Designed to be used with one or more
zero-fired SCR Power Controller, HDR’s BaseLoad-Controller can help eliminate light flicker
normally associated with large zero-fired loads.
High harmonics and low power factor caused by
large phase- fired loads can be improved using
a base-load-controller combined with a phasefired SCR Power Control.
