Simple user interface for temperature controller
West Instruments, part of the Danaher Sensors and Controls Group, has launched an innovative temperature controller that combines simplicity of use with a range of functions that have only previously been available from far more expensive high end devices. Called ProVU, the new controller is also unique in offering the option of integrated data logging in this price bracket, together with a large LCD screen with simple text messages, an innovative set up wizard and customisable menu options. Combined, these can help to reduce setup and operating costs still further.
ProVU is designed to make operation as simple as possible, with a large area LCD screen for displaying graphics and messages in plain text, with the option of automatically changing the screen colour for alarm and event conditions. The plain text feature reduces the potential for confusion that is traditionally associated with the mnemonic codes that are often used with competing products with LED displays.
In addition, the new controller incorporates a simple set-up wizard, which automatically starts as soon as the instrument is powered on. The wizard guides users through the principle set-up and configuration procedures, including the type of inputs, outputs, alarms, set points and so on. For many mainstream applications this may be all that is required, enabling fast and simple commissioning.
