Electronic Temperature Controls
The cost-effective EC112 and EC114 control boards are ideal for use in various heating and chilling applications such as convection ovens, conveyor ovens and toasters, buffet lines and refrigerating products found in the food service industry or any process application where temperature regulation is important.
With cost-consciousness in mind, LCR constructed the EC114 by combining the low-cost EC112 with an easily integrated ‘snap-on’ board to provide a digital interface. Because both boards utilize the same base architecture, you can easily incorporate both versions into your product lines, while benefitting from economies of scale by purchasing larger quantities of the EC112 to use alone or with the supplementary digital interface board for EC114 applications.
The boards use standard platinum RTD or NTC thermistor temperature probes with an optional mechanical relay or opto-triac output, and provide safe and reliable temperature control. The digital circuitry constantly monitors for a broken temperature probe or output relay, while the control algorithm uses an adaptive variable duty cycle technique for better accuracy and less overshoot. The controls accept 120 VAC, 208 VAC or 240 VAC power at 50 Hz/60 Hz.
