Hasco America, Inc. extends its hot runner product portfolio with a generation of control units in the H1280/… series. A new, intuitive, touch user interface supports the user’s inputs at all navigation levels. The rapid-start wizard guides users through all the key settings, enabling even untrained personnel to safely operate the controller within a short time.
The hot runner controller also includes comprehensive monitoring to protect the controller, hot runner system and mold. Its troubleshooting feature enables malfunctions to be rapidly located and contains illustrated repair instructions. Cooling elements on the outside ensure ideal heat elimination for greater reliability and a longer service life for the electronic components, and sensor inputs are equipped with voltage protection. Its start-up routine detects short-circuits to prevent fuses from blowing. Individual zone fuses are accessible from the outside and can be replaced without opening the controller housing, and the triacs can be exchanged on the main board without soldering.
The controller operates in star and delta networks and offers multiple user languages. The integrated Ethernet, RS485, CAN and USB communication interfaces permit universal data exchange with a range of devices. And, equipped with OPC UA, the controller is ideally suited to modern Industry 4.0 applications. Three housing sizes with 6 to 36 zones are available as table-top units.
