Real-world applications
Whether it’s for excellence in control easy set up or easy straightforward
functionality the piccolo controllers can be used across a broad range of
applications to solve problems.
Kilns, Ovens and Furnaces
Batch Operation
The piccolo controller is well adapted to
ovens, small furnaces and kilns. For
machines such as a small kiln for
firing ceramics or an oven
treating complex small
parts, the timer function
can gradually increase
the temperature to the
desired setpoint –
preventing thermal shock
or damage/distortion to
the work pieces being
heated.
The simple timer in the piccolo controller may
be used to control batch operations, e.g. food
ovens, sterilisers, fryers. Ideal for any
application requiring a single dwell at the end
of either a controlled ramp or natural approach
to setpoint without the need for an additional
timing device. This can also be used to
automatically bring the process up to
temperature ready for production to start in the
morning.
The timer automatically maintains
the temperature for the desired
dwell period, before turning power off to
allow the items to cool.

An over-temperature alarm may be used to
control an interlock on the door as a basic safeguard.

All of this may be controlled either using the piccolo controller fascia, or from an
external switch wired to an input on the controller.

Plastic Processing Control (Extruders and Chillers)
Eurotherm have vast experience in Plastic Processing control and
has helped improve the productivity of customers’ singlescrew, twin-screw, co-extrusion, or blown film systems by
taking better control of the temperature.
Using low cost On/Off temperature controllers
or poor PID controllers can result in variation of
temperature in the feed throat, barrel and head
which can ultimately lead to poor levels of
productivity.
The precise PID control of the piccolo controller is
used to ensure uniform heating of the material to
avoid material degradation, undue strain on the
extruder components, and improve process reliability.

Chillers are used in the plastics industry to protect valuable
processing equipment – such as extrusion, injection molding
equipment and other applications. Another reason for their use
is to increase production through constant and proper cooling
temperatures in the equipment. A chiller will reduce the number of
rejected parts while increasing the number of parts produced per hour.
A chiller is a compressor based cooling system that is similar to an air
conditioner except it cools and controls the temperature of a liquid
instead of air.
The piccolo controller can be used to consolidate functions and replace
several interconnected devices to chillers, including an external timer. The
level of functionality, programmability and alarming gives the user a way
to create a local custom alarm strategy that can best achieve the operating
safety of the machine, minimise downtime and improve quality.

Practical functionality
Energy Saving
Energy saving in industrial processes is often as easy as increasing levels of thermal insulation
around furnaces, boilers or pipes. If a working environment feels hot when you walk into it,
the chances are that simple measures such as these will save considerable energy. However
this can lead to control problems, because a well insulated system can be slow to react to
cooling commands from the controller. The piccolo controller range has been designed to
cope with such challenges and provide excellent performance even when there is a wide
imbalance between the effects of heating and cooling.
Energy can also be wasted in providing headroom for heating because of control instability. If
a process must maintain a temperature of a given level for a given ‘soak’ period of time, it is
common to add in a safety factor on the temperature so that oscillations during the soak time
don’t take the temperature below specification. By using precise and accurate control, this
safety factor may be reduced without risking expensive rework or scrap.
Energy Estimation
Heater Failure Detection
The aim of this function is to have an estimation of energy consumption of
the controlled process. By setting the nominal power of your load with a
dedicated parameter the instrument is able to calculate the integral of the
on time period of a selected output. Two counters are provided in operative
mode to offer a partial and a total counting feature. The purpose of this
feature is to provide visual feedback on the
energy being consumed. Any deviation
Furnace
observed from the average value will alert you
to possible problems in the process.
A current transformer input in the piccolo controller
measures the current switched through the load. The
measurement is filtered so that the on current and off
currents can be separated. From this it is possible to
diagnose several load faults including partial load failure,
over current and
CT
an SSR fault.

Undo Function
Overshoot Elimination
You wouldn’t
use a word
processor
without an
undo function so
why settle for less when
working on control systems?
It is interesting to compare process control with the
familiar situation of driving a car at a given speed. We
Setpoint
tend intuitively to use full acceleration until we
approach the speed we want, and then progressively
back off acceleration until the speed is reached and
regulate the speed around that point.
The piccolo controller undo
function allows you to revert
to a known instrument
setting, either as supplied
from the factory or a trusted
setup. This enables you to
experiment with settings and
functions without the worry
that you will lose the current
configuration and have to
recommission from scratch.
Temperature
without cutback
with cutback
PID control typically works by gradually reducing
power from a maximum over the full range of
operation. This can cause a slower rise to setpoint, or
can create overshoot and oscillations if the PID
constants are set to allow more aggressive heating.
Time
Cutback is a unique feature of the Eurotherm control algorithm and allows aggressive application of power
outside a defined approach region. Just like a driver trying to reach a particular speed as fast as possible,
the algorithm applies full power when the measured temperature is outside the region, before using PID
control to make adjustments to the power within the cutback region only. This provides rapid response
without overshoot or oscillations. This unique 'cutback' feature reduces process overshoot which in turn
reduces startup time and hence allows processing to commence earlier.
The cutback function is automatically set up using the PID autotune facility in the piccolo controllers.
