approaches the SV by the rate-of-change.
Auto/Manual control switching Auto/Manual control can be switched by keypad.
If control action is switched from automatic to manual and vice versa, 
balanceless-bumpless function works to prevent sudden MV change.
If control action is switched to manual, the manual MV is indicated on the display. (CHx display flashes.)
When power is turned on, control action starts from its previous controller status (last shutdown).
Timer spec Selects either Control timer or Delay timer function.
Control timer:
Timer starts when CH1 input exceeds Control timer start temperature.
After Control timer setting time has elapsed, control (for DC current output, output low limit) and alarm action will stop. 
Delay timer:
When DI input is ON (Closed), the timer starts. 
Timer output turns ON after ON delay timer time has passed. 
Timer output turns OFF after OFF delay timer time has passed.
Cascade control 
(Block function)

To control one process, 2 inputs [CH2 as a master (1st-order controller), and CH1 as a slave (2nd-order controller)] are used for more advanced control.
MV is calculated from PV and SV of the master (CH2), and is used as SV of the slave (CH1), with which CH1 control computation is carried out, then outputs from CH1 control output.
[CH2 control output will be OFF (0mA for DC current output) or OUT2 (Cooling output) for Heating/Cooling control.]
MV (0 to 100%) of the master (CH2) corresponds to the SV (External setting low limit to External setting high limit) of the slave (CH1).

Heating/Cooling control output (Block function) This is 1ch Heating/Cooling control output spec. CH1 will be Heating output (OUT1) and CH2 will be Cooling output (OUT2), followed by control performance.
OUT2 proportional band (P) 0.0 to 10.0 times OUT1 proportional band 
(ON/OFF control when set to 0.0.)
Integral time (I) The same as that of OUT1
Derivative time (D) The same as that of OUT1
OUT2 proportional cycle 1 to 120sec
ARW The same as that of OUT1
Overlap/Dead band Thermocouple, RTD input: -100.0 to 100.0? ()
DC current, voltage input: -1000 to 1000
OUT2 ON/OFF hysteresis 0.1 to 100.0 () (DC current, voltage input: 1 to 1000)
OUT2 high limit,
OUT2 low limit
0 to 100% 
(DC current output: -5 to 105%)
OUT2 action mode Air cooling (linear characteristic), Oil cooling (1.5th power of the linear characteristic), Water cooling (2nd power of the linear characteristic)

PV = (CH1 PV - CH2 PV) 
Set values such as input type, scaling and PV filter time constant can be individually set to CH1 and CH2.
However, if CH ranges differ from each other, indication and difference depend on the reference channel.

Addition value of CH1 and CH2 will be the input value for CH1, and control performs using this value.
PV = (CH1 PV + CH2 PV)
Set values such as input type, scaling and PV filter time constant can be individually set to CH1 and CH2.
However, if CH ranges differ from each other, indication and addition depend on the reference channel.
CH2 PV difference (CH2-CH1) input
(Block function)

Temperature difference between CH1 and CH2 (CH2-CH1) will be the input value for CH2, and control for CH2 performs using this value.
PV = (CH2PV - CH1PV)
Set values such as input type, scaling and PV filter time constant can be individually set to CH1 and CH2.
However, if CH ranges differ from each other, indication and difference depend on the reference channel.

CH2 PV addition (CH1+CH2) input
