Digital controller: how to programm it?

  1. Nov 5, 2006 #1

    I have to use a Honeywell-Mellen controller UDC 3200.
    To heat up to 1000°C with 5°/C min.
    I was programming as follwing:
    EU/HR: 8500
    GAIN: 60.0

    but is is still fast heating ?
    Have you any idea how to do it?

    Thank you in advance!

    Read the datasheet?

    Your question doesn't look like programming problem.
    It looks more like you are asking about heating element constraints.

    I am asking how to set the programm because I have the problem that is too fast heating.
    I do not know what is wrong.

    1000C, eh? Hot dog! On our ovens, the ramp rate is set with the RATE variable. Does your machine have something similar?
