Series RMC
The Athena Series RMC brings new and highly
productive benefits to injection molders looking for a
modular hot runner controller that’s flexible, easy to set
up, and simple to operate.
Using the popular Modbus® communications protocol,
the Series RMC gives users the ability to set or change all
zones, either remotely from a desktop computer, or (with
the ALL command) from any other individual RMC
module in the mainframe.
▲ Choice of three default modes for open
thermocouple condition
▲ Built-in triac safety protection
▲ Accepts J or K thermocouple input
(jumper selectable)
▲ SafeChangeTM “hot swap” feature allows safe removal
and replacement of module
▲ CompuStep® bake out feature prevents moisture
at startup
▲ Built-in loop break, short, open, and reverse
thermocouple protection
▲ “Boost” mode for temporary % of power
output increase
▲ Ground-fault protection
▲ Adjustable setpoint limits
▲ Stores highest temperature detected
▲ Current monitor feature displays average
current to load
▲ CE compliant

Note: The 30 amp Series RMC is twice as wide
as the 15 amp model and has a circuit
breaker instead of a power switch.
