Omron (Japan) - OMRON Releases New Temperature Controller to join the E5_C series which has been popular for its readability and usability. The new E5GC has a compact and short body of 24mm X 48mm.
The new temperature controller E5GC joins the E5_C Temperature Controller series, which has been popular since its release in December 2011because of its performance as well as readability and usability. The E5GC has a compact body of 24mm X 48mm, the result of our constant drive to miniaturize.
There is an increasing need for downsizing machines and control panels. Especially, desk-top type or portable type small machines have limited space for internal devices, therefore, the control devices are required to be compact as well.
The newly released temperature controller E5GC inherits the high level of readability, operability and basic performance of the E5_C series in a 24mm X 48mm compact body. The E5_C series had won the "iF product design award 2013" (*1). The body is 10% shorter than the previous OMRON temperature controller, and vertical and horizontal group mounting are possible (*2) to meet the needs of customers who require to downsize laboratory instruments or desktop small furnace. Furthermore, the E5GC adopted a white PV display to achieve high visibility, and the character size is the largest in the industry as dual display type (*3). You can easily set programs and manage data by using the special software (sold separately).
(*1) For E5CC and E5EC
(*2) Vertical mounting has limited ambient operating temperature and mountable number of units. This is possible only for screwless cramp terminal blocks.
