Kuhnke Power Heat Controller, infrared

Product Information

The 9 channel heat controller with EtherCAT fieldbus interface is used to control powerful contact heaters or infrared heaters.

The unit requires less space inside the switching cabinet than conventional solid state relays. Especially where intelligent functions, such as soft start, grid voltage compensation and load break are required, it is a more cost-effective solution than any standard PLC-based control system.

The controller stands out for its compact dimensions and offers features, such as EtherCAT field bus interface, soft start via phase control, bus-type power supply, automatic mains voltage correction, exchangeable superfast (FF) fuses for load networking via EtherCAT CODESYS components for condition indication via LEDs for each channel.
