The RB series of high-performance, single-zone temperature controllers from RKC Instrument Inc., S. Bend, Ind., boasts new control software and an economical price. A new auto-tuning algorithm that calculates optimum PID values to shorten the time to reach setpoint. After the PID values are autotuned, Fine Tuning control allows the operator to adjust control response speed with a 6-level adjustment without changing the PID value. Also, a startup tuning function can be used for applications that require a long time for conventional auto-tuning. It can be selected at power-up or setpoint change. The RB series samples every 0.25 sec. It comes with heat-only or heat/cool functions, two digital inputs, up to four alarm outputs, USB port, and ability to store four setpoints. Sizes include 1/16, 1/8, and 1/4 DIN. (574) 273-6099 • www.rkcinst-usa.com
