    100 and C Series High Performance Temperature Controls

    from $155 List


    Future Design Controls dual display 100 Series and single display C Series set a new standard for DIN temperature controllers packed with performance to meet low cost OEM needs while providing reliable High Performance temperature control with 3-Year Warranty.


    The C21 & C91 are single display 1/32 & 1/16 DIN Controls. The 9100, 8100 & 4100 are dual display 1/16, 1/8 & 1/4 DIN controls. The B41 is a board level version of the 1/4 DIN 4100; Click B41.


    With the highest input resolution for like products, fast scan rate and proprietary Fuzzy Logic Auto Tune the 100 Series provides world-class control performance. Available in 1/32, 1/16, 1/8 & 1/4 DIN sizes with up 3 control outputs plus Communications.


    Unique SEL function provides user flexibility & operator ease of use: Parameters most significant to the operator [up to 8] can be configured to display in sequence when the scroll key is depressed.  [P, I, D,  Shift, Cycle 1, deadband, etc., or nothing displayed].


    Configurable Alarm Logic [process, deviation & band] with Latching, non-Latching and Alarm Hold. Additional features include one Ramp/Soak segment, timer function, view PID % output,  Auto/Manual, Configurable Bumpless Transfer, Set Point Ramp, Communication via RS232/485 or Analog Retransmission, PC Configuration Software, and very shallow mounting depth.


    Note the C Series does not offer latching alarms or Auto/Manual features include configurable display decimal point, hysteresis for control and alarm outputs, Output Limiting, PV Shift [bias], Deadband between Heat/Cool outputs and more.


    Easy & intuitive access Setpoints for Output 2 & 3 if so equipped.


    Manual Loading Station: Instead of being used as a PID control the 100 & C Series may be configured as a Manual Loading Station to provide easy method to manually control a linear output. The single display C Series are the most popular models for Manual Stations. Additional information can be found at: Loop Controls Manual Loading Station.pdf


    OEM or Distributor Private Branding is available.
