West Controls MLC9000+ Multiloop Temperature Control System

When you're short on panel space, and have problems maintaining banks of discrete temperature controllers, the West Controls MLC9000+ multiloop control system is your answer. With less wiring, faster setup times, and no need for panel cutouts, the MLC9000+ significantly reduces cost and installation time. If you need a temperature controller that reacts faster to process disturbances than your PLC, handles on-demand and auto-tuning, and is expandable, so you only buy the loops you need, take a look at this flexible multiloop control system.

PC software and a setup wizard makes configuring parameters a breeze — even integrating between the MLC9000+ and your master device is easy. A drag-and-drop feature in the configurator selects the parameters presented to the master device and automatically generates a custom file to be imported into the master.

Key Specifications

  • System consists of one communications module and up to eight control modules; Link multiple systems together operations requiring more than 32 loops of control
  • Communications modules available for Modbus, DeviceNet, PROFIBUS, CANopen, Ethernet/IP and Modbus/TCP
  • Control modules have one, three, or four loops, including heater break inputs, and up to six outputs: Solid state relay driver or 2-Amp SPST relays
  • Hot-swappable modules let you remove, replace, reconfigure, and get back in service in less than 30 seconds
