Handling Precautions
Handling Precautions
These handling precautions address issues that can potentially cause the product to
malfunction.
Power and Usage Environment

Use the rated power only.

Maintain the controller's ambient temperature between -10℃ and 50℃.

Turn the power on and allow the temperature controller to warm-up for twenty
minutes before use.

A power switch or a circuit-breaker is necessary to supply and cut off power to the
product.

Install the switch or circuit-breaker in the vicinity of the product to facilitate easy
access.

Use the product in a well-ventilated environment. Otherwise, arrange for ventilation if
necessary.

Recommended usage conditions are as follows:

Indoors

Below 2,000 m altitude

Pollution Degree 2

Installation Category II
Sensor Input

If using in an environment where the margin of sensor error cannot be avoided, use
the Input Bias feature to minimize the error margin.

If using a thermocouple sensor, make sure to use prescribed compensation wire as
extension wire.
Failure to do so will produce temperature distortion at the junction
between the thermocouple and the extension wire.

If using a resistance temperature detector (RTD) sensor, always make connection
with three-wire configuration. In addition, only use three wires of identical material,
thickness and length if you need to extend the line. Variance in wire resistance will
lead to temperature distortion.

Handling Precautions

When changing an input sensor, first disconnect power to the product and then
connect the new sensor. Restore power to the product and update the related
parameters either directly from the product or using the PC loader program.

Always use a line filter on the controller's power line. Also, use shielded wire for the
input signal line, provided it is necessary for the power line and the input signal line
must remain close to one another.
Noise Effect

Isolate the product's wiring from high-voltage lines and power lines to prevent impulse
noise.

Avoid using the product in the vicinity of high-frequency noise generating devices,
such as: welding machines, sewing machines, high-capacity SCR controllers, and
high-capacity motors.

Avoid using the product in the vicinity of radio, television, and wireless devices that
may cause high-frequency interference.
Communication

Only use twisted pair wires for the communication lines. Attach round ferrules at the
ends of the lines to reduce the impact of external noise.

Do not have the communication lines in close proximity of the AC power line.

If possible, use a separate power source (24 VDC) for the communication converter
(SCM-38I, sold separately).

This feature is used to compensate for input bias produced by thermocouples, RTDs,



6.1.5
Make sure that an accurate temperature variance measurement
is taken before setting values of Input Bias. An inaccurate initial
measurement can lead to greater variance.
Many of today's temperature sensors are graded by their
sensitivity. Since higher accuracy usually comes at a higher
cost, most people tend to choose sensors with medium
sensitivity. Measuring each sensor's sensitivity bias and using
the Input Bias feature for correction can ensure higher accuracy
in temperature reading.
Input Digital Filter
It is not possible to perform high accuracy control if the PV (Present Value) fluctuates
because of noise elements, disturbance, or instabilities in the input signal. Using the Input

6.3.2.1
Hysteresis Settings

An ON/OFF control feature is used to define the control output ON/OFF points.
ON_Hysteresis sets the output on point and OFF_Offset sets the off point.

Setting hysteresis too low can result in hunting induced by disturbance (noise,
chattering, etc.). To minimize hunting, set ON_Hysteresis and OFF_Offset values
according to the heater or cooler's capacity and thermal characteristics, control
subject and sensor response characteristics, installation conditions, and other
defining factors.

PID Control

PID control is a combination of proportional (P), integral (I), and derivative (D)
controls and offers superb control over control subjects, even with a delay time.

Proportional control (P) implements smooth, hunting-free control; integral control (I)
automatically corrects offsets; and derivative control (D) speeds up the response to
disturbance. Through these actions, PID control realizes ideal temperature control.
How to apply PID control
 Proportional (P) control: Set both integral and derivative times to
0 after PID control is selected.
 Proportional-Integral (PI) control: Set the derivative time to 0
after PID control is selected.
 Proportional-Derivative (PD) control: Set the integral time to 0
after PID control is selected.
 When using the multi-SV function, the same PID time constant
will be applied to SV0 to SV3.

Control Period Settings

If relay or SSR is used to send out MV under proportional control, the output is on for
a fixed amount of time (within the control period, as a percentage of the MV) and then
remains off. The preset period when output ON/OFF takes place is called the
proportional control period.

Control using SSR drive voltage output has a faster response than that of relay output.
Therefore, by configuring a shorter control period, more responsive temperature
control is achieved.

Offset Correction/Manual Reset Settings
When only proportional control (P, PD control) is used, the control subject's thermal
capacity and heater capacity affect the heating and cooling time. This means stable

Auto-tuning
In PID control, auto-tuning processes the control subject's thermal characteristics and
thermal response rate, and then determines the necessary PID time constant. Application
of the PID time constant realizes fast response and high precision temperature control.
6.3.4.1

monitoring power supply to the heater.

Heater disconnection is detected by the controller using a current transformer (CT),
which converts the current to the heater to a specific ratio (C∙Tratio) for monitoring.
If the heater current value (CT-A) measured by the C∙Tis less than the heater
detection setting value (Alarm Low_CH), the heater burnout alarm will activate.

Current detection is not performed if OUT control output time is
less than 250 ms.
It is recommended to use Autonics designated current
transformer (for 50 A).

If using a single output heater (Capacity: 200 VAC, 1 KW, 5 A), normal
heater current is 5 A, and burnout heater current is 0 A, the setting value
is calculated as (5 A + 0 A)/2 = 2.5 A. Therefore, heater current values
less than 2.5 A (heater burnout setting value) will be deemed heater
burnout and the alarm will activate.
When two output heaters (Capacity: 200 VAC, 1 KW, 5 A) are used,
normal heater current is 10 A (5 A X 2 EA). If a single heater burns out,
the heater current becomes 5A. The setting value is calculated as (10 A

Troubleshooting Tips
7.1
Error Display
Display LED is flashing every 0.5 sec or an external connecting
device displays error message while using the product.
This is a warning indicating that the external sensor is OPEN. Cut the power to the unit
and check if the sensor is connected. If abnormality is found in input sensor connection,
disconnect input sensor from controllers and make connection between input (+) terminal
and input (-) terminal in order to check whether current ambient temperature is displayed.
If current ambient temperature is displayed, it can be inferred that the controller is
operating normally. IF HHHH or LLLL is displayed, however, it can be inferred that
problems are found on the controller. Please contact Autonics service center. (This error
check can be available for only thermocouple type.)

Make sure a proper input sensor has been selected.
