Athena Controls has launched its new Series RMB and RMC line of mainframe-style hot runner controllers. The RMB control module with Digital Current Display (DCD) allows operators to view process temperature and current reading simultaneously. Energizing the display keys allows users to toggle through percent output and to adjust setpoint temperature.

The microprocessor-based temperature controller is specifically designed for runnerless molding applications. It features an easy-to-use operator keypad, two LED displays, and three discrete indicators for heat current, alarm and manual mode.

The RMC module, with Adjustable Current Limit (ACL) allows operators to adjust the current trip from 1 amp through 15 amps, providing better protection. Using the widely-used Modbus communications protocol, the controller gives operators the ability to set or change all zones, either remotely from a desktop computer, from a handheld device or from any other RMC module in the mainframe.
