Temperature controllers

Standalone 1 channel controllers for heat-treatment units

CasCade has an extensive range of reliable temperature controllers for integration into (existing) heat-treatment units

  • ultra reliable: MTBF times > 40 years
  • various sizes
RKC RF series
RF series low-cost temperature controllers

Ramp/soak program controllers for heat-treatment batch kilns and furnaces

The PF and PZ series program controllers are very well suited for controlling temperature profiles in heat-treatment batch kilns & furnaces.

  • ultra reliable: MTBF times > 40 years
  • various sizes
  • slave controllers can be connected to the program-controller running the temperature profile. This enables a multi-zone control system.

EasyHeat for remote operation of heat-treatment unit for pre-heating

The EasyHeat system enables you to operate your heat-treatment unit remotely with smartphone, tablet or windows PC. Temperature registration with our cloud-based LogOnline service.

Both new and existing heat-treatment units can be upgraded with this EasyHeat system.

HeatManager integrated temperature contol & registration system for pre-heat and post-weld heat treatment (PWHT)

integrate both the temperature control & registration into 1 reliable and flexible system: the HeatManager

The CasCade HeatManager has been specially developed for heat-treatment (both pre-heat & PWHT) and combines both the temperature control & registration into 1 flexible system

  • 6 or 12 channels
  • both temperature control & registration are integrated: no separate recorder needed
  • can be operated remotely with smartphone/tablet/windows PC

Maintenance free thyristormodules to replace Albright relays

The Albright contactors can have welded contacts (with unwanted rise of temperature during a post-weld heat-treatment) and need maintenance over time.

To create a better solution, CasCade developed compact 6 channel 136A 480Vac thyristor unit modules, to replace these Albright relays with a more reliable and rugged solution that needs no maintenance.
