Dynisco Instruments, Franklin, Mass., has just launched its first multi-loop controller, using PID algorithms similar to those offered in its discrete single-loop temperature and pressure controls. The new OptTrol system controls up to eight temperature and two pressure loops and can be expanded to 40 temperature loops. It is configured to a processor’s specifications for single- or twin-screw extrusion or coextrusion. OptTrol costs about $10,000, which is substantially less than installing and wiring an extruder for eight discrete control loops. It offers color touchscreen control, autotuning, and adaptive tuning.
