Plastic Engineering & Technical Services, Inc. (P.E.T.S.) has introduced a PHRS family of temperature controllers. This PID-controlled instrument was specifically designed for the hot runner plastic injection molding industry. The controller is self-adjusting and capable of maintaining a very high degree of accuracy over a wide range of operating conditions, the company notes.
The PHRS-GU 12-96 Zone Temperature Control System allows users to monitor, set up and control the system via a computer LAN network using an internet connection. The PHRS-GU system features a user-friendly diagnostics system that delivers precise multiple zone temperature control, and requires only one controller to process all load sizes.
