The CS Series power controllers feature a rugged, industrial design, touch-safe exterior and conservative, continuous service amperage ratings at 40˚C (104˚F) ambient. They are available in both AC and DC voltage logic input command signals and employ zero-cross firing (gated to turn on and off at zero voltage), which keeps unwanted RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) to a minimum. The model CS1 controller manages single phase loads up to 120 Amps and 600 Vac, and model CS3 manages three-phase, 3-leg loads up to 55 Amps and 600 Vac.
LED indication of signal status and alarm events as well as optional alarm outputs for both over-temperature and load/line interrupt conditions set the CS Series controllers apart from competitive offerings. The CS1 offers a digital PNP type alarm output signal for logic-gated devices such as PLCs. The IP20 touch-protection cover increases user safety, while built-in thermal and line supply condition monitoring safety features reduce operational risk. Each controller includes an integrated heat sink and fan (if applicable). The CS Series power controllers boast third-party USA and Canadian UL component recognition and CE conformity certifications.
“The CS Series power controllers solve several pain-points with distinctive features not often found in low-cost SSRs,” said Scott Treser, Director of Controls and Panel Development at Chromalox. “Our CS Series controllers manage a wide range of amperage loads in a very small footprint, while improving process control and safety with the unique alarm choices.”
