TIC automatically recognizes and controls active gauges including APG100 Pirani, convection, thermocouple, strain, inverted magnetron, wide range and active ion gauges. To enable complete integration into PC and PLC controlled processes, all TIC variants include RS232 and RS485 interface.
TIC has six pressure related set points, which operate open collector outputs rated at 24 V d.c. 50 mA. Using the optional relay boxes, these may be linked to 250 V a.c. changeover relays to provide a useful accessory control capability. All relay boxes include a logic bypass facility for further system integration.
In most instances, TIC systems may be simply and quickly configured using the range of standard cables on offer, there is therefore no need for the customer to prepare loom assemblies or relay boxes and special interfaces.
TIC includes lookup tables for a range of commonly encountered process gasses (N2, He, Ar, CO2, Kr & Ne). Selecting the appropriate gas enables direct readout of the correct pressure without the need to apply conversion factors.
TIC is packaged in a compact case and may be panel or rack (¼ 19 inch rack 3U) mounted. With the addition of the bezel it becomes an attractive bench-top instrument. The large 128 x 64 pixel backlit graphics LCD and mobile phone style menu system simplifies programming and with a choice of summary screens excellent visibility of displayed parameters is assured.
TIC will operate from mains supplies with voltages between 90 and 264 V a.c., and frequencies between 47 and 63 Hz. No user intervention being required.
