IMS Co.'s Model TM215M closed-loop temperature control module is microprocessor based and designed for use with type J or K thermocouples. It compares the measured temperature to the operator's chosen setpoint and regulates current to the electric heater to maintain the processing temperature at this setpoint. The 15 A modules can function in 15 or 30 A mainframes. Applications in the plastics processing industry include temperature control of mold and hot-runner heaters, barrel and nozzle heater bands and cartridge heaters.
