New version USB communication interface for RKC Instrument configuration: COM-KG
The RKC Instrument COM-KG interface can be used for connecting all RKC Instrument equipment fitted with a configuration port via USB interface to a Windows PC.
With the free downloadable PROTEM2 software you can use it for:
- configuration and setting parameters
- backup parameters and load them in other RKC devices
The interface is also fitted with a generic RS-485/422 interface that can be used for connecting all kinds of equipment with this kind of interface to a PC with USB port. This can be used for SCADA applications running on the PC.

Compact and reliable 6 channel 136 Ampere 480Vac thyristor module
This compact 6 channel thyristor module can be used as a maintenance free replacement for relays/contactors driving resistive loads.
Example: Albright relays are used in heat-treatment units. Over time the contacts of those relays stick together causing an unwanted rise in temperature on the workpiece. Now and then the contacts of the relays must be replaced with new ones. This replacement procedure and the possibility of an unwanted high temperature on the workpiece can be prevented by installing this compact 6 channel thyristor module.
HeatManager pre-heat and post-weld heat-treatment PWHT control & registration systems
Specially developed for pre-heat and post-weld heat-treatment (PWHT): The CasCade HeatManager.
The HeatManager combines temperature control with temperature recording. So no need for a separate temperature recorder. But if you still need or have to use a recorder: check our temperature recorders including calibration certificate and built inside rugged stainless steel housing in RAL colour to your specification.
The HeatManager can be set at a fixed pre-heat temperature for welding. After this the HeatManager can perform the post-weld heat-treatment (PWHT) by following a pre-programmed temperature profile.
Fieldbus interface modules
Our RKC process and temperature controllers (which are fitted with MODBUS-RTU RS-485 interface) can communicate with various other systems, like:
- Siemens S7 (ProfiNET, ProfiBUS)
- Beckhoff (EtherCAT)
- Allen Bradley (EtherNet/IP, DeviceNET)
- Schneider/Telemecanique (ModBUS TCP, ModBUS RTU)
- Mitsubishi Melsec (CC-Link , MAPMAN)
- Omron SYSMAC (MAPMAN)
- Sharp (MAPMAN)
- Yaskawa (MECHATROLINK)
By using so-called communication convertors. These convertors convert the desired communication fieldbus interface and protocol into MODBUS-RTU RS-485.
Completely renewed: thyristors & solid state relays SSR
Lately our website on power controllers, thyristors and solid state relays SSR, for electrical heating has been completely revised. We have them for 1, 2 or 3 phases, 10-2700Amperes and up to 690Vac. Suited for all kinds of electrical heating elements:
- resistive loads (resistance not dependent on temperature)
- inductive loads (i.e. primary side of transformer)
- infrared (IR) long- medium and short wave lamps
- molybdenum (MoSi2) elements (i.e. Kanthal super)
- silicon carbide (SiC) elements
- UV lamps
We have both single zone and multizone up to maximum 24 channels in 1 system.
Industry 4.0 ready with ProfiNET, ProfiBUS, Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU interfaces including support for Siemens TIA portal for easy integration with Siemens S7-1200/1500 PLCs.
