In this article and video, Lindsey Shepard gives an overview of the E5C
Series of Temperature controllers from Omron Automation.
The E5C series will save you time and effort in set-up and
operation while enabling faster and more accurate monitoring and control of
The high-contrast, white LCD display contributes to the
exceptional clarity and readability of the E5-C series. The large display can
be read from greater distances and multiple vantage points.
Coupled with auto tuning algorithms which greatly reduce
set-up time, Omron’s CX-Thermo support software was designed specifically for
use with this series of temperature controllers. This enables faster parameter
set-up, simplified device adjustment and maintenance. The USB Serial conversion
cable eliminates the need for a power supply to program the device. The power
from the USB port can power up the controller when using the CX Thermo
software. With a few clicks of the mouse, you can download your parameter into
any omron e5-c series controller.
This series offers a unique performance with a fast 50
milli-second sampling period for fast and precise regulation. Omron’s 2-PID
control is a key advantage offered over standard controllers. It uses a
powerful algorithm, which has a major impact on the control stability, and the
quality of your products.
Various models and sizes are available including the E5CC
which has a depth of only 60mm. The E5GC measures only 48 by 24mm and can be
group mounted either horizontally or vertically. The E5DC features a 22.5mm
width body and DIN-rail mounting capabilities. This is an ideal option for
applications where multi-zone control is needed along with communication to a
PLC or touchscreen.
The E5DC also has a removable terminal block for easy
mounting and replacement. If the controller wears out, all you have to do is
remove it from the base and insert the new controller eliminating the need for
With Key features like simplicity in operation, 50
milli-second sampling period, and the ability to handle multi-function input
and output types, - combined with Omron’s patented 2-PID control, the e5c
series sets a new standard in fast and precise temperature regulation.
