CN616TC1, TC2, TC1-P, TC2-P


 Six Zone Thermocouple Temperature Controller

with Hi or Lo or Hi/Lo or no alarm

and PID or On/Off control, heating or cooling

and Ramp and Soak 20 segments for each zone

CN616TC1   $676.00 CN616TC1-P    $720.00



The CN616 Series is a microprocessor based

temperature controller, which accepts signals from

thermocouples. Six zones are sequentially scanned

at 15 readings per second [@ 60 Hz] and displayed

with  a selectable display rate of 1 to 40 seconds

each zone. A single output relay is provided to

indicate an alarm  condition on any one zone.

The  faceplate has been arranged to call attention to

an alarm condition by flashing the main temperature

display and indicating the zone in alarm with a flashing

 zone number display. The CN616 Series implements

 a security password to protect all functions


Six PID time proportional or on/off outputs  are

provided to control six zones.


In the CN616TC1internal 5V DC is used to drive SSR's

if more power is needed external 5 to 40V DC can be used


In the CN616TC1-P  internal Triacs control power output

so there is no need  for the SSR's in low power applications.
