UDC2500 Universal Digital Controller

UDC2500 Universal Digital Controller

Built on a legacy of performance and reliability, Honeywell's next-generation controller, the UDC2500, delivers unmatched power, flexibility and performance in the popular ¼ DIN size. The waterproof NEMA 4X/IP66 faceplate allows the controller to be used in wash-down applications. Simple, intuitive software makes controller configuration a snap. A wireless infrared communication port enables controller setup from a Pocket-PC or computer. Ethernet communication allows easy connection to plant networks. A high/low limit model that carries the FM logo is also available and the unit can be ordered with a single or dual display option.  The UDC2500 controller is easy to install, easy to configure, easy to operate and easy to own.

 

Features:

  • NEMA 4X/IP66 -The UDC2500 controller faceplate is rated NEMA 4X/IP66 which allows it to be used in wash-down applications.  The front face of the controller will withstand a continuous spray of water at 65 gallons per minute from a 1 inch diameter nozzle for 5 minutes from a distance of 10 to 12 feet.
  • High/Low Limit -The UDC2500 controller is available as a high/low limit and carries the FM (Factory mutual) logo.
  • Single or Dual Display -The UDC2500 is available with a single display and operates in the automatic mode.  An optional dual display and automatic/manual mode is also available.
  • PC Tools -Create configuration with the intuitive software program running on a pocket PC, a Desktop or a laptop computer.  Create and edit configurations live or off line and save in a reference file for future use or to download to other controllers.  The software is available in English, Spanish, Italian, German and French.
  • Infrared interface -The infrared interface provides a non-intrusive wireless interface connection with the controller and maintains the NEMA 4X/IP66 integrity.  No need to get access to the back of the controller to communicate with the instrument, no need to take your screwdriver and wire a communication cable.  You can duplicate an instruments configuration, upload or download a new configuration in just a matter of seconds, simply by pointing your pocket PC in the direction of the instrument.
  • Ethernet Communications -Industry standard Ethernet communications is available as an option on the UDC2500 controller.  This option uses Modbus TCP/IP to connect to other Ethernet networks allowing the user to monitor the process from almost anywhere.
  • Multi language prompts -The UDC2500 display can be configured in five different languages, English, Spanish, Italian, German and French.
  • Security Lockout -User selectable 4-digit code is available to maximize process security.  Choose from any one of five levels to lock-out just a few functions or the entire keyboard.
  • Accutune III -Accutune III with fuzzy overshoot suppression recognizes both setpoint and load changes and is a standard feature on the UDC2500 Controller.  "Fast tune" will tune the process to reach temperature as quickly as possible while "Slow Tune" minimizes overshoot.
  • Heater Break Alarm -Continuously checks the controller current output to insure the end element (heater) has not failed.  A failure will trigger an alarm.  
  • Thermocouple Diagnostics -In addition to the standard configurable upscale, downscale or failsafe output burnout selections, the condition of the thermocouple can be monitored to determine if it is good, failing or in danger of imminent failure.
