Applications like annealing, drying, melting or heating glass, plastics or metals often demand precise heat control. Automating that heating control helps ensure precise temperatures are met and that the energy used for heating is used efficiently. This helps you use raw materials more efficiently and reduce energy use.
To help meet these demands, we’ve developed the Abb DCT880 power controller. Built on our industrial drive technology, the DCT880 easily integrates into your processes or machine’s automation network, but can also operate independent of automation systems.
Integrated 3-phase current measurement precisely calculates and monitors the load resistance in the load circuit for improved system performance. Load optimization can balance loads of multiple devices in parallel operation to reduce peak loading.
