A Microprocessor Based Oven Controller
Protocol 3™ is a microprocessor based temperature and hi-limit controller designed to make oven operation simple and flexible. It provides a level of temperature control, versatility, and operational simplicity unmatched in the industry. The control portion utilizes a time-proportioning voltage signal to control heating devices with minimal temperature fluctuations.
Easy To Operate
Protocol 3™ is easy to use for both simple and complex applications. Temperatures are displayed in either Fahrenheit or Celsius on a large, bright LCD display. Six indicator lights provide an at-a-glance review of the oven's operating status. The easy to read LCD display also provides detailed information on oven status with clear real-text messages and simplifies programming of temperature and time parameters with user-friendly menus.
Protocol 3™ provides three operating modes in one versatile, easy-to-use package:
The Protocol 3™ datalogging function allows for logging important process data for reporting and analyzing. The controller has linear outputs in several conventions (0-10 mV, 2-10mV,0-20MA, and 4-20mA) to drive a host of recording devices.Â Internal temperature recording is available and accessible via a USB port.Â The USB port can also serve to upload and download temperature profile recipes.
Protocol 3™ has three options for calibration of the controller:
Protocol 3™ can be used in an electric or gas oven. The controller has an end of cycle option, recovery from power failure option and options for set point temperature hold that include; above set point, below set point and band over and under set point. Multiple configurations are available to accommodate almost any oven.
Remote operation, programming and data logging
The Despatch Protocol Manager network utility software enables the operation of up to 32 Protocol 3™ and/or Protocol Plus controllers from a single, remote PC using RS485 communication.
