A new hot-runner temperature controller for 2 to 128 zones boasts very fast scanning and fuzzy logic for accuracy to 0.1° C without overshooting. The Z1240 comes from Hasco America Inc., Fletcher, N.C. Integrated diagnostics detect wiring errors and thermocouple breaks, and a special output-level monitoring feature automatically compares the current and last-used output levels of certain key operating parameters. Deviations inform the operator at an early stage of imminent malfunctions or failure, even before any bad parts are produced.
