|iTools - SETPOINT PROGRAM EDITOR|
Making Batch profiling simple...
What is a SETPOINT PROFILE or PROGRAM....
In a setpoint programmer you can set up a profile in the controller in which the setpoint varies in a pre-determined way over a period of time. Temperature is a very common application where it is required to t can be set to end,r repeat any number of times, or repeat continuously.
FEATURES in the EUROTHERM PROGRAMMERS
it indicates that the process value is lagging the setpoint by more than
a settable amount and that the program is waiting for the process to catch
Holdback can be defined to activate when the PV is below the SP by a pre-set value or when the PV is above the SP by a pre-set value.
During a dwell period the holdback type may be set to deviation band. This guarantees that the dwell or soak period operates only when the process value is within both high and low deviation limits. During a ramp down period the holdback type may be set to deviation high. If the process cannot cool at the rate set by the ramp down rate the program will be held until the process catches up.

How does the SETPOINT PROGRAM EDITOR help with setup of a controller?
The SETPOINT PROGRAM EDITOR is a standard feature of iTools 5.00. Press the button on the main toolbar, to enter the programmer. Note for modules that do not have setpoint program options (2100 series, 2200e series, 2200L and 3116, 3216) this tool button will not be available.
above image shows the basic editor screen (shown is a three profile version
for a 2704).
Simply select the SEGMENT TYPE (see list below), then input the segment SETPOINT, and TIME or RAMP RATE where required.AND THAT'S IT YOUR SETPOINT PROFILE IS DONE.
Profile Programs can be programmed directly into a Eurotherm Controller,
or a program can be developed OFF LINE, saved and downloaded to a controller
at a later time.
