How does a temperature controller work?


An industrial temperature controller is a device used to control the temperature in an industrial environment, such as a factory or a machine or equipment in an industrial process.

The temperature controller typically consists of a PT100 temperature sensor or a thermocouple temperature sensor, a local display that shows the current process temperature, and a set of controls that can be used to adjust the temperature. In many cases, this device is also equipped with an alarm that is triggered if the measurement exceeds or falls below a certain threshold. They can be used to control heating and cooling systems.

Both types of instruments use sensors to measure the current temperature and compare it to the desired set point temperature. When the temperature deviates from the set point, the controller activates the appropriate heating or cooling element to bring the temperature back under control. These devices are essential for many manufacturing processes that require accurate temperature.

By monitoring the temperature and making the necessary adjustments, the controller can help maintain a constant temperature in an industrial or laboratory space. This helps ensure product quality and equipment operation.


What are the different types of controllers ?

There are two main types of temperature controllers: on-off controllers (sometimes called thermostats) and proportional PID controllers.

The on-off controller simply turns the heating or cooling element on or off to maintain the desired temperature.

The proportional PID temperature controller, on the other hand, modulates the power of the heating or cooling element to more precisely maintain the desired set point without exceeding it.

What are the advantages of industrial temperature controllers?

Industrial temperature controllers have many advantages.

The main advantages are as follows:

  • they can control the temperature very precisely;
  • they react quickly to temperature changes;
  • they are durable and reliable;
  • low maintenance;
  • easy to install.

What are the applications of industrial temperature controllers?

An industrial temperature controller is used in industry and manufacturing. Temperature controllers are used in a wide variety of applications, such as refrigeration, air conditioning, heating, ventilation and others. Temperature controllers are used by technicians to control the temperature of a process, system, or room or space. These devices are available in several types, such as digital, analog, and programmable. Programmable temperature controllers are used to control the temperature of a process or system according to a program set on an interface.

Why use a temperature controller in the industry?

Pourquoi-utiliser-un-régulateur-de-température-dans-l'industrieThe benefits of temperature control in industry include increased productivity and quality, reduced energy costs and improved efficiency, regulatory compliance and improved product quality. Control also reduces equipment wear and tear, minimizes emissions and improves safety. In short, control is essential to ensure a smooth and efficient production process.

Improve production quality

Industrial controllers have been developed to enable better quality manufacturing of products in the industry. These devices control the manufacturing processes and prevent deviations that could affect the quality of the products. In addition, industrial controllers reduce production costs by optimizing processes and avoiding waste.

Save energy

Controllers save energy in industry by keeping the measurement at a predetermined level. This is accomplished by adjusting the heating or cooling output according to the needs of the controlled area. Modern controllers use advanced technology to minimize energy costs. Microprocessor-based controllers use sophisticated algorithms to control temperatures according to a program. These devices have an impact on energy savings by controlling energy expenditures and reducing losses due to temperature changes.

How to choose the right digital PID controller?

A controller is an important part of any control system. It is responsible for accurately ensuring that it stays at the set point.

Each industry has different control needs, and the appropriate digital controller can vary depending on the specifics of the application.

One of the first things to consider is the temperature range to be controlled.

Another significant consideration is the type of inputs.

  •     Input for thermocouple and RTD temperature probes.
  •     Analog input in voltage or current to connect a pressure transmitter or a flow meter.

The type of output must be adapted to the control unit:

  •     relay output to control a magnetic contactor
  •     voltage output,
  •     current output for controlling an SCR power controller or a frequency inverter
  •     servomotor output to control a valve
  •     static relay output for controlling solid state relay

The type of power supply: 110 Vac - 230 Vac - 24 Vac/dc

Finally, consider the specific functions offered by the different temperature controllers for each purpose.
Some models may offer functions such as alarms or data logging, ramp/soak function, recording function and a Modbus RTU communication interface.
