Athena Control’s Engineer Evaluated and Redesigned Controller
While installing an air heater system at a customer’s factory we burned out several heaters. With the assistance of an Athena Controls engineer we reviewed the system and brought several heaters into the Athena lab for testing. As a result, Athena re-designed the controller to update every 100 ms and changed the control algorithm. The design changes now allow control of very fast air heater, and IR heater processes +/-1˚ at 1,000˚ F.
