The TC Series controllers are a range of energy efficient, microprocessor-based, multifunctional, programmable temperature controls designed for self-contained refrigeration systems. 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 controllers. If you order more than a minimum quantity, you can order controllers with white, blue, or green LED displays. These compact controllers are available in panel mounting or DIN rail mounting types. TC Series controllers 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.

TC3B Series

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.

TC3 Series

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.

TC3X Series

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.
