Temperature Controller

Temperature controller interface

Optional PC control module

Optional Eurotherm 3204 
Standard temperature controller:
  • Proportional–integral–derivative control (PID control) and auto-tune function
  • 30 segments programmed with ramping, cooling and dwelling steps
  • Built-in over-temperature alarm and thermocouple failure alarm
  • Three S type thermcouples.
  • +/- 1 ºC temperature control accuracy
  • Default DB9 PC communication port (PC control module and software are sold separately. See optional.
  • MTS-02 PC control module (also including cable and software) is an add-on option for PC control.
    • It is recommended to purchase the module together with the furnace. We install and test it before shipping. 
    • It is recommended to purchase the laptop (with software pre-installed) from us to avoid software confliction.

    • Alarm Relay: Form 'A' and Form ‘C’ built-in 
    • Digital Communications: RS485
    • Temperature Accuracy:  ±  0.1ºC
    • Recipes: Using a PC tool recipes can be created that can be used to change the operating parameters of the 3000 simply by selecting a new recipe via the HMI. This is very useful where multiple products are processed using the same controller but require different parameters to be set.
    Laptop, software & WiFi Control(Optional)
    • Brand new laptop with Microsoft Window 10 and Microsoft Office 2013 (30 days free trial) for immediate use.
    • Labview Based Temperature Control System (EQ-MTS01) enables user to edit temperature profile, manage heat-treatment recipe, record and plot data for MTI furnaces.
    • A wireless remote control provides up to 300 meters operating range.
    • Above features are available upon request at an extra cost (up to $1,000). Please contact us for more information.
    • Note: 
      The software is only compatible with MTI’s Yudian Temperature Controller

    Operation Instructions

    • The tube furnaces with alumina tube are designed for using under vacuum and low pressure < 0.02 Mpa / 0.2 Bar/ 3 PSI 
    • Never use graphite crucible in alumina tube.
    • Attention: A two-stage pressure regulator must be installed on the gas cylinder to limit the pressure to below 3 PSI for safe operation. Click here to learn the installation of a gas regulator.
    • The flow rate for gases should be limited to < 200 SCCM ( or 200ml/min )
    • Vacuum limit definition for all alumina tube furnaces: * Vacuum pressures may only be safely used up to 1500°C

    • One year limited warranty with lifetime support (consumable parts such as processing tubes, and O-rings are not covered by the warranty, please order replacements at related products below.).  
    • ATTENTION: Any damages caused by the use of corrosive and acidic gases are not under the coverage of MTI One Year Limited Warranty.
    • CE Certified
    • All electric components ( >24V) are UL / MET / CSA certified
    • The furnace is ready to  pass TUV(UL61010) or CSA certification at extra cost.( please click marks below to learn details )
