The Eurotherm 2200 and 2400 controllers have been two of Eurotherm's longest-running and best-selling control products for the past 25 years. They have proven to be highly adaptable and dependable in a wide range of applications. Many things have changed since the 1990s, however, including considerable breakthroughs in microelectronics technology. Resultingly, Eurotherm incorporated these innovations into new and improved products.
Consequently, Eurotherm chose to phase out the 2200 and 2400 series controllers on January 31, 2021, with repair and servicing available until 2025.
Eurotherm suggests the EPC3000 series of programmable controllers as a substitute for the 2000 Series. They provide the same capabilities you've come to expect, as well as significant enhancements to assist meet today's needs. They also have wiring that is quite similar to the 2200 and 2400 series controllers. Additionally, they come in the precise three DIN sizes.
Installing the controller into existing panels is painless and straightforward. Furthermore, the EPC3000 series was created with cybersecurity in mind and has been certified to exceed the rigorous standards of Achilles Communications Robustness Testing Level 1. You'll also get superior precision control, excellent thermal stability, and noise rejection. The EPC3000 is also more user-friendly, with a graphical wiring environment to aid in creating applications. Users can choose which function blocks to employ in their application and then connect them with "soft wiring" and includes a graphical setup. Ethernet connections are available via a standard RJ45 connector, allowing for quick access to process and diagnostic data and interface to an external PLC or a plant SCADA.
The EPC3000 programmable controller provides outstanding value and includes numerous functions that are generally found only in high-end control packages. Whatever your process, the EPC3000 series may assist you in achieving the necessary stability, accuracy, and repeatability.
