Dataforth Corporation - MAQ®20 Load Share Power Supply Module

Dataforth’s MAQ20 Industrial Data Acquisition & Control System offers an accessory Load Share Power Supply Module for expansion, standby and redundant power. Some MAQ20 I/O models deliver significant amounts of power to field devices, and power requirements may exceed the output of the Communications module. Load Share Power Supply modules can provide the additional power. (read more)

Dataforth Corporation - Tuning Control Loops for Fast Response

The well-known Ziegler-Nichols tuning rules work well on level control loops and on processes with very long time constants relative to their dead times. They do not work well, however, on flow, liquid pressure, and many other loops. In contrast, the Cohen-Coon tuning rules are effective on virtually all self-regulating processes and were designed to give a very fast response. (read more)

Dataforth Corporation - MAQ20 Thermocouple Modules = Excellent Accuracy

As a result of the advanced method of Cold Junction Compensation (CJC) used in Dataforth Corporation’s MAQ20 thermocouple modules, the accuracy of these modules is significantly better than that offered by competing models. (read more)

Dataforth Corporation - Tuning Surge Tank Level Controllers

Dataforth has added another PID Application Note to its website: an126, Tuning Surge Tank Level Controllers. Most tuning methods for level controllers are not suitable for surge tanks; however, the level-averaging tuning rule presented here will keep a surge tank’s level between its upper and lower limits with the least possible amount of change to the controller’s output.
