SHIMADEN MCM57/MRM57 Module Type Temperature Controller
MCM57 Communication Module
MRM57 Temperature Controller Module
MCM57/MRM57 Series temperature controllers consist of communication modules and temperature controller modules; a single temperature controller module supports 2-loop temperature control. The temperature controller modules for which initial setup has been completed can be operated independently. However monitoring the current values or changing the parameter settings requires a communication module. A communication module manages the group, supporting links between a master device (PLC, PC, etc.) and temperature controller modules. Communication between a master device and a communication module is done through RS-485 or RS-422: a communication module and temperature controller modules communicate through a dedicated bus. A maximum of 31 temperature controller modules can be connected in a single group A maximum of 4 groups can be connected to a single master device.
