Siemens Industry, Inc. unveiled its improved TCP3000 temperature controller, designed to make extruders more simple and economic. 

This pre-configured solution allows OEMs to save time and expense when equipping their machines; provides users with the highest degree of flexibility, scalability and performance; and offers simple and clear operator screens for temperature zone monitoring and control.

The TCP3000 can be operated using the new Simatic Multi-Panels including the 10-inch
MP 277 and the 12-, 15- or 19-inch MP 377.  It is supported by standard Simatic PLC software from Siemens, which requires no special high-level programming expertise.

Machine operators, technicians and maintenance engineers have a wide range of screens
at their disposal for easy and convenient operation and service. These include:

  • A graphical user interface for temperature and trend analysis
  • Controller settings including separate parameters for heating and cooling
  • Tolerance and control-loop monitoring
  • Control system identification for each temperature zone
  • Wire break monitoring with a programmable controller response
  • Timer clock and limits
