BriskHeat Corp. has released the Centipede 2, a temperature control system that is designed to economically control multiple heaters in a system. With the Centipede 2, each heater in a system has its own PID temperature controller and RTD sensor.
Individual PID control improves temperature uniformity and process control across a system for applications including PV manufacturing, the company says. These controllers network together to a touchscreen interface for global programming and monitoring.Â
In addition to the standard module design,Â BriskHeat now offers a DIN-Rail STACK version of Centipede 2.Â This space and cost-saving design features three zones of temperature control per module and connects to a PLC or external computer, the company, adding that this version is ideal for control panel and tool integration where high volume of heating zones (up to 512 zones) are located in a limited space.Â
