HRDc Temperature Controller

HRDc Panel Mounted Smart Temperature Controller

The Backer IoT Smart Temperature Controller (HRDc) from Heatrod allows the user to actively control and monitor their heating systems, wherever they are. Giving accurate control of temperature and therefore energy usage.

Developed to fill a gap in the digital control of our own heating products, the Backer IoT Smart Temperature Controller (HRDc) allows users to visualize and control energy usage and application temperatures remotely. Heating equipment will nearly always be the highest user of energy on a commercial or industrial site - active monitoring and management can quickly benefit the user through energy savings.

Our Smart Temperature Controller is designed to be incorporated into integrated heating applications, built into our immersion heaters and also as a stand alone panel mounted independent controller. The HRDc is designed to be fitted directly into your control or instrument panel with an easy to fit flexible housing. Both process and target temperatures can be easily viewed from the front screen and alterations to the set point can be made using buttons on the front panel.

Features

Device management is a key principle in monitoring and controlling heating devices. The Backer IoT Smart Temperature Controller (HRDc) and Smart Immersion Heater (HRDi) are designed with the Internet of Things at the heart of their ability. They allow clustering of devices and management as part of a flexible device dashboard. This may be split by plant room, building or even across a global asset base.

The addition of condition monitoring as an integral feature of the controller, allows users to develop condition monitoring strategies and maintenance routines. Flexibility is key – this means the ability to connect multiple temperature sensors as well as other auxiliary signals and be able to control a variety of outputs from heating elements to pumps and fans.

The software is just as important as the hardware. Our in-depth knowledge of PID control, along with features such as condition monitoring can all be configured and monitored with our extensive suite of software.

Features and Specification

The HRDc range of temperature and process controllers are designed to be fitted directly into your control or instrument panel with an easy-to-fit flexible housing. Both process and target temperatures can be easily viewed from the front screen and alterations to set point can be made using buttons on the front panel. Maximum communications flexibility is offered using either a mobile android application or by connecting through any web browser. With basic setpoint functions available from the Android app, the user can progress to more complex scheduled heating times through the web browser based scheduling system. Data is constantly logged and decision making becomes simple using the tools that the HRDc dashboard has to offer.
