Mounting
Wiring
Figure 2. Mounting Diagram
IMPORTANT: All electrical wiring connections should be made
only by trained personnel using Class 1 wiring, and in strict
accordance with the National Electrical Code and local regulations. Both of the incoming power lines should be fused with
2AG, 0.5 A maximum rated fuses.
The OTC25 controller has built-in circuitry to reduce the
effects of electrical noise (RFI) from various sources;
however, power and signal wires should always be kept
separate. We recommend separating wires into one bundle
for power (from line power and output) and one bundle for
signal (from thermocouple).
Before installing OTC25, ensure gasket seats evenly
around edges of unit and that there are no breaks or tears
in the gasket.
The OTC25 power supply accepts 100 through 250 Vac and
120 through 250 Vdc line power without any switch settings
or polarity considerations.
Insert the OTC25 through the front panel cutout, slide
mounting “U” bracket around unit and secure it with the
screws provided.
Gasket should be evenly compressed around all sides to
provide liquid-tight mounting.

installed as instructed
on page 18 (Figure 6).
Normal Operation
The factory default display setting of the OTC25 N is for Actual
Temperature
. The default display may be changed to
setpoint temperature by selecting Setpoint
at the Default
Display
parameter selection. When the Default Display is
changed to Setpoint, the setpoint temperature may be adjusted
by using the Raise
or Lower
keys. The setpoint is
adjustable from 32 to 905° F (0 to 485° C).
When the Default Display setting is “Actual”
, adjustment
of the Setpoint may only be accomplished by pressing the
Parameter
Key momentarily to switch the display to
Setpoint, and then using the Raise
or Lower
Keys
to change the Setpoint Value. The display will automatically
revert back to “Actual” five seconds after the last keypress.
Parameter Configuration
Your OTC25 N controller’s parameter selections are explained
on the next page, with default settings shown in Figure 5a.
To enter the configuration menu, press and hold the Parameter
key
for 10 seconds until the display changes to the parameter mode. Press the Parameter key again to index through the
available parameters. Pressing the Parameter Key for 3 seconds
or allowing 60 seconds of inactivity will cause the OTC25 N to

observe the other value by momentarily pressing the
Parameter
Key. This will cause the alternate value to be
displayed for five seconds.
Control Hysteresis is adjustable between 2 and 252° F (1 to
140° C ). This parameter is used by the control algorithm to
prevent rapid cycling of the output around Setpoint. The
default value is 4° F (2° C). This means the heat will turn OFF
when the Actual Temperature exceeds the Setpoint by 2° F
(1° C). Conversely, the heater will not turn ON until the Actual
Temperature drops 2° F (1° C) below the Setpoint.
A Deviation Band is a pre-set number of degrees, plus and
minus, around the Setpoint Value, ex. +10° F. A Deviation
Band Alarm provides an indication to the operator that the
Actual Temperature has either exceeded or dropped below
the chosen deviation. This parameter can be turned off
or adjusted from 1 to 252° F (1 to 140° C). When the process
variable is outside the deviation band, the alarm is indicated
by flashing the display (regardless of whether setpoint or
actual temperature is displayed) and the optional alarm
output is activated.
Display Offset
Display Units
Display Offset is adjustable from -126 to 126° F (-70 to 70° C).
It can be used to provide limited adjustment of the displayed
temperature as a compensation for offsets between the true
temperature and the temperature seen by the thermocouple.
This allows the operator to have the display indicate either
degrees Fahrenheit or degrees Celsius.

temperature as a compensation for offsets between the true
temperature and the temperature seen by the thermocouple.
Proportional Band
Proportional Band is a PID parameter that represents the
amount of deviation of the controlled variable required to move
through the full range, expressed in % of span or degrees of
temperature. This parameter can also be expressed as “Gain”
(the wider the band, the lower the gain).
Rate
Rate is a PID parameter (Derivative Action) that produces a
corrective signal proportional to the rate at which the controlled
variable is changing. It is used to correct for overshoot and
undershoot.
Reset
Reset is a PID parameter (Integral Action) that produces a
corrective signal proportional to the length of time and
magnitude that the controlled variable has been off setpoint.
It is used to accommodate load changes.
Heat Cycle Time
Heat Cycle Time is displayed in seconds, and can be set from
0 to 120 seconds. A setting of zero represents a heat cycle
time of 300 milliseconds.
Cool Cycle Time
Cool Cycle Time is displayed in seconds, and can be set from
16
0 to 120 seconds. A setting of zero represents a cool cycle
time of 300 milliseconds. This menu parameter will only be
displayed if output 2 is configured to be a cool output.
Deviation Band Alarm
A Deviation Band is a pre-set number of degrees, plus and
minus, around the Setpoint Value, ex. +10° F. A Deviation Band
Alarm provides an indication to the operator that the actual
temperature has either exceeded or dropped below the chosen
deviation. This parameter can be turned off
or adjusted
from 1 to 252° F (1 to 140° C). When the process variable is
outside the deviation band, the alarm is indicated by flashing the
display (regardless of whether setpoint or actual temperature is
displayed and activating an output, if configured as such).
Output 2 Configuration
Output 2 may be configured as either a control output or as an
alarm output for the deviation band alarm. When configured for
control, output 2 acts as a cool PID output. When configured
for an alarm, output 2 is activated when the deviation alarm is
active and deactivated when the deviation alarm is inactive.
Display Units
This allows the operator to have the display indicate either
degrees Fahrenheit or degrees Celsius.
Input Type
Sensor input type may be either a Type J or Type K
thermocouple.

Calibration
Calibration
Calibration
The Calibration High
and Calibration Low
selections are accessible only when the
calibration jumper is
installed (Figure 6).
,
Calibration of the OTC25 controller requires the operator
to apply two separate fixed and specific signals (Calibration
Low and Calibration High) from a reference source
(thermocouple calibrator) to the controller. The Raise
Key “tells” the controller to read the applied signal and use
it as a reference point.
Calibration Procedure
1. Prior to applying power to the unit, install the calibration
jumper on the microprocessor board as shown in
Figure 6.
2. With the instrument still unpowered, connect a calibration
reference source to the thermocouple input terminals on
the OTC25.
3. Apply power. Allow at least 15 minutes for the controller to
warm up before continuing.
4. Using the Parameter
Key, index to the Calibration Low
parameter. The display will alternately flash this
mnemonic and the number “32” (“0” for Celsius units).
5. Adjust the reference source to output a voltage equivalent
to that generated by a “J” or “K” (OTC25 P) thermocouple
at 32° F (0° C). Allow reference to settle for 10 seconds
before proceeding.
Figure 6. Location of Calibration Jumper.
6. Press the Raise key
once to set this reference point.
The display will stop flashing momentarily while the
controller self-calibrates (approx. 3 seconds), and then
resume flashing.
7. Press the Parameter
Key, index to the Calibration High
parameter. The display will alternately flash this
mnemonic and the temperature value it expects to see.
