IRIS controller for MATIC product line

With the new IRIS controller, Tool-Temp offers a smart and intelligent solution for all types of process temperature control. The user can expect ease of use and, at the same time, a state-of-the-art communication and interface solution geared to the future.

All operating data such as temperatures, pressures, flow rates, operating states, status messages, diagram data and data curves are available in the controller. IRIS continuously informs, reports and optimizes the operation of the temperature control unit.

In addition to local operation on the touchscreen, remote access is possible. Using a terminal device such as a phone, tablet or PC, you can access the web server integrated in the temperature controller via a web browser. The connection is made via LAN cable or via the WLAN adapter integrated in the controller. The operation here does not differ in any way from manual operation.

The model-based algorithms continuously summarize all available data and compare it with the current, expected behavior. This constant adaptation enables the overall system to provide optimum, uninterrupted and reliable temperature and flow control and reliable monitoring of the process.
