Burkert Fluid Control Systems is launching a new version of its mxControl multi-parameter controller. The microprocessor-based mxCONTROL system provides for general process and chemistry control in applications such as cooling towers, boilers and reverse osmosis plants. Most recently a new and highly versatile PC programming tool has been added, resulting in a significant improvement in system flexibility and inventory costs.
Since it was first introduced in 2008 the mxControl has been even further enhanced by flexible programming capabilities, meaning that integrators and end users will benefit from fast program modifications during commissioning, future upgrades and maintenance needs. Based on a newly developed PC tool, flexible programming makes each system even more standard. This hardware standardisation enables only four part numbers to cover a vast range of chemical and process control applications. This significantly reduces project implementation time, thereby minimising downtime, training and inventory costs. The mxControl is highly adaptable, with its multi-parameter functionality; it can be configured to monitor, display, transmit and record flow, pressure, pH/ORP, conductivity, O2, CL2, level, and temperature.
RS485 communications link the controller directly to field devices, including on/off or proportioning valves, sensors and dosing pumps. Remote site monitoring is also possible via optional modem, Ethernet and GSM modules.
