SERIES F4 1/4 DIN Temperature Process Controllers
High Performance Controller
Offers Application Versatility
and Ease of Use
The SERIES F4 1/4 DIN temperature process controller
offers performance features to meet a wide range of
industrial processing needs. The F4 process controller is
ideal for semiconductor manufacturing equipment, plastic
processing and packaging equipment and industrial process
control applications.
This controller features a four line, high definition LCD
interface display, in addition to an information key that
enables easy setup and control operation, minimizing
the chance for error. Its 16-bit microprocessor ensures
accuracy and delivers performance advantages you can
count on from a Watlow® controller.

General Purpose Control Operation
Alarms
The SERIES F4 temperature process controller with a single
channel PID controller supports either closed or open loop
operation. The design utilizes the latest technology to meet
complex processing needs while maintaining an easily
understood operator interface.
Two alarms are included in the base unit and can be
programmed as process, deviation or rate.
Full, non-abbreviated parameter choices are displayed using
a four line, high-definition LCD interface display that is back
lit for wide angle viewing. Firmware guides the operator
through parameter choices for feature configuration. An
information key (I) provides the operator with detailed help
information regarding the parameter or feature being
configured. The main page menu can be programmed to
display output power through 16 control variables including:
bar graphs, set points and operating ranges. Up to four
programmable messages can be activated remotely to inform
the operator that the process requires attention.
Five sets of PID values can be auto-tuned to support
varying system reactions over the complete operating range.
Up to 10 offset points can programmed to compensate for
differences between the actual process value and sensor
readings caused by sensor placement.
Control Inputs
Up to three universal analog inputs are configured through
software to support thermocouples, RTDs and process
(voltage/current) sensors. Auxiliary inputs 2 and 3 can
function as a remote set point input, sources for
retransmission or as the outer loop for cascade operation.
Digital Inputs
Four inputs are programmable and can remotely modify
controller operation and display pre-programmed messages
on the operations display.
Control Outputs
Heat/cool or reverse/direct action is supported. Time based
outputs can be configured for variable burst fire or a cycle
time can be selected. On-off boost heat or boost cool
operation is also supported. Boost operation is enabled
based on load power requirements
Serial Communications
Both EIA 232 and EIA 485 communications are included in
the base unit. The SERIES F4 operates via the Modbus® RTU
protocol and responds to requests for information only when
queried. Baud rate selections are 9600 or 19200.
Retransmit
Up to two optional programmable voltage or current
signal retransmit outputs are supported. Retransmit sources
include up to three process variables; set point and output
percent power.
Enhanced Control Operation
An enhanced operation option for the SERIES F4 process
controller includes additional universal analog inputs
(inputs 2 and 3) and enhanced firmware to support several
features that utilize the two additional inputs. The enhanced
control option can be configured to support cascade control,
(see the application diagram below), differential control, ratio
control and slide wire valve control. The enhanced control
option can also alternate between control inputs, display
up to three process variables and support remote set point
operation.
In this sample application, the SERIES F4 process controller
uses the enhanced cascade control feature to heat lube oil to
51.6°C (125°F). Cascade control is a control strategy in which
one control loop provides the set point for another loop.
It allows the process or part temperature to be reached
quickly while minimizing overshoot. Cascade is used to
optimize thermal system performance with long lag times.
Input 3 measures the lube oil temperature before it leaves the
tank. Input 1 measures the heater temperature. The input 3
process value is compared to the set point which generates
an internal set point used to control the heater.
