Frequently Asked Questions

What is a PID and PLC controller?

A PID (Proportional, Integral, Derivative) controller is a control loop mechanism that continuously calculates an error value as the difference between a desired setpoint and a measured process variable. It applies a correction based on proportional, integral, and derivative terms to minimise the error and stabilise the process. A PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) is an industrial digital computer that has been ruggedized and adapted for the control of manufacturing processes, such as assembly lines, robotic devices, or any activity that requires high reliability, ease of programming, and process fault diagnosis. PLCs can run automatic control programs, including but not limited to PID control.

What are the 3 main components of PID controllers?

The three main components of a PID (Proportional, Integral, Derivative) controller are:

  • Proportional (P) component: Adjusts the output proportionally to the error, where the error is the difference between the setpoint and the process variable. It addresses the current error.
  • Integral (I) component: Accumulates past errors and integrates them over time to eliminate residual steady-state errors. It addresses the accumulation of past errors.
  • Derivative (D) component: Predicts future errors by calculating the rate of change of the process error. It addresses potential future trends in the error.

What types of controllers does Sintebros Corporation offer?

We offer a diverse range of controllers, including slim digital multi-function timers, high-performance LCD temperature controllers from Hanyoung Nux VX and Pixsys, and the state-of-the-art Shinko BCx2 series PID temperature controller.

Are the temperature controllers easy to program?

Yes, the temperature controllers are designed for easy setup and maintenance with a simple five-key interface, and some models also support programming via NFC with dedicated apps for even more convenience.

Can I configure the controllers for different temperature ranges?

Yes, our controllers, especially PID temperature controllers, are configurable for a wide range of temperature inputs and offer various control outputs to suit different temperature range requirements.

Do the controllers come with any certifications?

Yes, our controllers adhere to international standards, including CE & RoHS markings, ensuring compliance with safety and environmental regulations.

What is the purpose of the AT (Auto Tuning) on startup function?

The AT on startup function automatically tunes the controller upon startup to optimise performance, reducing setup times and enhancing accuracy for your processes.

How can I ensure the controller fits my application’s space constraints?

Our controllers are designed with space efficiency in mind, such as the 1-module DIN rail mounting for timers and the compact design of our PID controllers. Detailed dimensions are provided to ensure compatibility with your installation space.
