The TC Series controllers are a range of energy efficient, microprocessor-based, multifunctional, programmable temperature controls for self-contained refrigeration systems that operate with both on-off switches and variable speed compressors. Depending on the model you choose, TC Series controllers can also manage alarms, active or passive defrost cycles, evaporator fan functions, and case lighting.
A large, red LED display is standard for all TC Series controllers. If you order more than a minimum quantity, you can order controllers with white, blue, or green LED displays. The TC Series are panel-mount controllers. They use EVTPN temperature sensors so that you can remotely mount the display unit. All TC Series controllers have a variety of optional inputs and output relays to perform compressor, defrost, evaporator fan, lighting control, and alarm management control. TC Series controllers consist of three groups of controllers: TC3B, TC3, and TC3X.
The TC3B Series provides temperature, alarm, and optional defrost cycle management. The TC3B Series facilitates defrost management for hot gas or electric heat defrost, with time-based or temperature-based defrost termination. The series can replace a temperature control, a digital temperature readout, and a defrost timer. Some TC3B models can also control an evaporator fan and lighting. The TC3B Series also includes a model with pulse-width modulation (PWM) output to drive a variable speed compressor.
The TC3 Series provides temperature, alarm, defrost, evaporator fan management, lighting control, and alarm buzzer capabilities. The TC3 Series facilitates defrost management for hot gas or electric heat defrost, with time-based or temperature-based defrost termination. The series combines the functions of a temperature control, a digital temperature readout, a defrost cycle timer, and a defrost termination device. Optionally, the TC3 Series can control an evaporator fan and lighting. You can order models with built-in RS485 Modbus communications or models with the option to add communications with a TCIF adapter.
The TC3X Series is a compact temperature controller. The controller is ideal for applications that require a reduced panel mount depth of 39.5 mm (1 9/16 in.). Typical applications include bottle coolers, refrigerated tables, and pizza counters.
