Setpoint ramping and ramp soak from West Control Solutions
This video feature from West Control Solutions focuses on setpoint ramping and ramp soak. Available on most West Control Solutions controllers, setpoint ramping is used to protect the process or equipment from quality problems or damage that may occur if sudden changes were allowed to happen in the process value. Some controllers take the concept further by adding a ‘soak’ or ‘dwell’ at the end of the ramp.

West Control Solutions has introduced a user-friendly range of digital thermostats. The range includes a simple human-machine interface (HMI), a high-visibility display and a high-ingress-protection-rated casing, which makes the devices suitable for food and beverage manufacturers.
This white paper from West Control Solutions will walk you through the different criteria to consider when choosing your controller.
Limit devices provide vital protection for temperature-controlled process systems, ensuring product quality and the safety of both the workforce and the plant itself. This paper from West Control Solutions takes a closer look at why limit devices are required, describes how they work and explains why they reduce risk, providing a useful summary to anyone who is considering specification of limit devices.
This paper from West Control Solutions explains the basics of input calibration and sets out some of the benefits that can be achieved.
Cascade control is a temperature control method that has two elements: the primary (end product) and the secondary (used to control the primary). In these applications the secondary variable is measured and controlled in addition to the primary element to achieve better control. This white paper looks at why we need cascade control, provides some examples of applications that use cascade control and discusses how the process can be stabilised.
