MAXVU offers faster set-up than rival products because its start-up configuration menu only shows the most vital parameters including sensor types, units, outputs, alarms and setpoint values, removing time spent scrolling through unecessary options.

MAXVU is particularly suited for packaging tray and bag sealers, textiles applications (such as seam sealing and thermal bonding) and processes in the food and beverage sector including fryers, micro-breweries and chocolate tempering.

Curtis Uhll, Engineering Manager, West Control Solutions, commented: “Overspecifying temperature controllers can cause unnecessary expense at initial purchase and, more significantly, a waste of resources in terms of set-up time and ongoing operation. By limiting the parameters that need to be set, MAXVU simplifies configuration and increases efficiency for simple temperature control requirements.”

MAXVU’s ease-of-use is supported by its large display. A unique button design on the 1/16 DIN product, with the buttons at left and right of the digits on the keypad, allows an impressive 0.7in (18mm) upper digit and 0.4in (10.2mm) lower digit height in a 1.8in (48mm) high device. The larger digits offer increased clarity and visibility from distance to view vital process information and alarm messages that help monitor a system is running effectively. An equally impressive 3.7 x 1.8in (96x48mm ) unit is also available with 0.7in digits upper and lower.
