Control Engineering - Engineers' Choice Award 2016 Finalist The Platinum Series family of microprocessor-based PID controllers offer unparalleled flexibility in process measurement. While extremely powerful and versatile, great care has gone into designing a product that is very easy to set-up and use. The automatic hardware configuration recognition eliminates the need for jumpers and allows the firmware to automatically simplify itself, eliminating all menu options that do not apply to a specific configuration. Offered in 1⁄32, 1⁄16, and 1⁄8 DIN sizes, the 1⁄16 and 1⁄8 DIN models can be configured with dual displays.

Each unit allows the user to select the input type from 9 thermocouple types (J, K, T, E, R, S, B, C, and N), Pt RTDs (100, 500, or 1000 Ω, with either 385, 392, or 3916 curve), thermistors (2250 Ω, 5K Ω, and 10K Ω), DC voltage, or DC current. The full bidirectional voltage or current inputs are fully scalable to virtually all engineering units, with a selectable decimal point that is perfect for use with pressure, flow, or other process input.

Control can be achieved by using on/off, PID or heat/ cool control modes. PID control can be optimized with an autotune feature; and in addition, a fuzzy logic adaptive tuning mode allows the PID algorithm to be continuously optimized. The instrument offers up to 16 ramp and soak segments per ramp and soak program, with auxiliary event actions available with each segment. Up to 99 ramp and soak programs can be created and program chaining offers unparalelled programming flexibility. Multiple alarms can be configured for above, below, hi/lo, and band triggering using either absolute or deviation alarm trigger points.

The Platinum Series temperature controller features a large, 9-segment LED, three-color, programmable display with the capability to change color and/or change the state of designated outputs every time an Alarm is triggered. Various configurations of mechanical relay, SSR, dc pulse, and analog voltage or current outputs are available. Every unit comes standard with USB communications for firmware updates, configuration management, and data transfer. Optional ethernet (1⁄16 DIN and 1⁄8 DIN models only) and RS232/ RS485 serial communications are also available. The Analog Output is fully scalable and may be configured as a proportional controller or as retransmission to follow your display. The universal power supply accepts 90 to 240 Vac. The low voltage power option accepts 24 Vac or 12 to 36 Vdc.Additional features usually found only on more expensive controllers make this the most powerful product in its class. Some of these additional standard features are: remote setpoint for cascaded control set-ups, high-high/low-low alarm functionality, external latch reset, external ramp and soak program initiation, combination heat/cool control mode, configuration save and transfer, and configuration password protection.

An advance multi-stage ramp and soak sequencer supports up to 99 profiles of 8 segment ramp/soak sequences. Profiles may be linked to provide extended sequences and auxiliary outputs may be triggered based on individual Ramp or Soak states to provide external control over blowers, mixers or other auxiliary control functions.

Embedded Ethernet and Serial Communications
Optional "embedded ethernet" on the 1⁄16 and 1⁄8 DIN models allow the units to connect directly to an Ethernet network and transmit data in standard TCP/IP packets, or serve Web pages over a LAN or the Internet. Optional serial communications are also available configurable as RS232 or RS485, with straightforward ASCII commands or MODBUS®. All three types of communications interfaces can be installed and active simultaneously.

LabVIEW" LabVIEW™ Drive The Platinum LabVIEW™ driver is the National Instrument device driver for communicating with Omega Platinum Controller via Modbus RTU/ASCII and Modbus TCP interface. The driver allows easy access to the internal database and functionalities of the Platinum product family.

LabVIEW™ instrument driver reduces the application development time and simplifies instrument control. With Platinum LabVIEW driver, customers can quickly communicate with the instrument and develop robust test applications and software.

DASYLab
Support for the easy-to-use DASYLab software solves complex data acquisition and control problems by allowing you to work with flowcharts directly on your PC screen. The high input accuracy, advanced process control, extended sequencing capability and flexible output options of a Platinum controller may be easily integrated with the rich set of function modules provide by the DasyLab software. The DasyLab software may be integrated thru the Platinum serial, Ethernet or USB connections.
