STS Receives PID controllers From Toho Electronics

Southern Temperature Sensors (STS) has taken delivery of a range of PID controllers from Toho Electronics of Japan. STS already supplies refrigeration thermostats from Ako Electronica and high-performance control solutions from Gefran CRL, but a gap existed between the two lines, according to the company.

The Toho controller range, which is intended to fill this gap, is claimed to offer PID temperature and process control at affordable prices. STS claims that the temperature and process controller is available in all major DIN sizes and is capable of accepting all thermocouple and RTD inputs, as well as analogue current and voltage inputs, giving it the versatility of a high-performance controller.

An entry-level model of the controller costs less than GBP80. Other features include an inbuilt timer, optional RS485 communications, seven selectable alarm types and auto or manual tuning.
