Humidity / Temperature Controllers & Control Systems

Many applications require precise control of an environment. The ETS 500/5000 Series includes humidity and temperature controllers along with controllers for other linear processes. These systems are available in single and dual channel versions allowing control of two separate processes such as humidity and temperature and are also capable of providing single and multiple RAMP/SOAK programming functions. Initially designed for use with ETS controlled environment chambers, glove and dry boxes, the controllers may also be used to retrofit existing systems or with other sealed chambers. Each controller includes a plug-in sensor to monitor the environment while controlling heating, cooling, humidification, dehumidification or other functions. When used along with an ETS Operating System, the controllers are capable of providing precise humidity and temperature control across a wide spectrum. The heart of each system is a microprocessor PID control module which allows each process to be “tuned” to the user selected set point. The controllers may be used as stand-alone systems or with optional software which allows computer control and tracking of the environment.

5200-240-230 Humidity / Temperature Controller

5000 Series Microprocessor Humidity Controllers and Temperature ControllersDescription-Designed for use in virtually any industry, the ETS 5000 Series Microprocessor Humidity Controllers and Temperature Controllers are designed for use with ETS humidity chambers, temperature chambers, dry boxes and glove boxes. The controllers may also be used to retrofit existing controlled environment chambers, customer designed chambers and with environments from other manufacturers.

Each controller includes a plug-in sensor assembly to monitor the environment while the unit controls heating, cooling, humidification or dehumidification. When used along with ETS Operating Systems, the controllers are capable of providing humidity and temperature control across a wide spectrum.

The microprocessor control module allows each controller to be “tuned” at a user selected set point providing extremely accurate control . This is accomplished by pulsing the appropriate operating system and allows the controller to maintain much tighter tolerances than seen with comparator type controllers.

The ETS 5000 Series controllers are designed to be used as stand-alone systems or with the optional ETS Software Package which allows computer control and tracking of the environment. Depending on the version selected, the controllers also provide single and multiple ramp/soak functions.

  • Humidity control, temperature control and combinations
  • Control humidity, temperature CO2, O2 and pressure
  • 90-240 VAC Operation
  • Ramp/Soak profiling
  • Precision sensors

Operating Systems – Humidification, Dehumidification, Heating & Cooling

The heart of any controlled environment is the operating system which provides the appropriate conditions required to maintain the chamber at the user selected set point. Operating systems can be called upon to heat, cool, humidity and dehumidify for short-term and long-term applications. ETS offers a wide selection of operating systems allowing the end user to match the system to what is available at their facility. We also offer ready-to-use self-contained systems. ETS operating systems may be used with ETS environments or other sealed enclosures.
