Description

The OMEGA® CNi8DH and CNi8DV are high quality, highly accurate single loop Autotune PID Temperature and Process Controllers for 1/8 DIN (96mm x 48mm) horizontal or vertical panel cutouts. Both devices feature the same state of the art technology, uncompromising accuracy, and quality backed by an extended 5-year warranty. The CNi8DH and CNi8DV are simple to configure and use, while providing tremendous versatility and a wealth of powerful features.

The CNi8DH and CNi8DV come standard with your choice of two control or alarm outputs in almost any combination: solid state relays (SSR) rated at 0.5 amp @120/240 Vac; Form "C" SPDT (Single Pole Double Throw) relays rated at 3 amps @120/240 Vac; pulsed 10 Vdc output for use with an external SSR; or Analogue Output (0-10 Vdc or 0-20mA) selectable for control or retransmission of the process value.

The Universal Temperature & Process instrument (model"i") offers a selection of 10 thermocouple types as well as 2, 3 or 4 wire RTD's, process voltage and current. The CNi8DH and CNi8DV are ideal controllers for use with transmitters and amplified transducers. Built in excitation is standard (24Vdc @ 25mA). The devices handle 0-20mA Process Current and Process Voltage in three scales: 0-100mV, 0-1V, and 0-10V.

As with all iSeries devices, the Process Value display can be programmed to change colour between Green, Amber and Red at any set point or alarm point. The LED's displaying the Process Value on the CNi8DH (horizontal 1/8 DIN) are the largest digits of any 1/8 DIN controller.

The Strain/Process instrument (model “iS”) meters and controllers measure inputs from Load Cells, Pressure Transducers, and most any strain gauge sensor. Input ranges include 0 to 100 mVdc, -100 mVdc to 1 Vdc, 0 to 10 Vdc in addition to 0-20 mA. Excitation for transducers of 5 Volt and 10 Volt is standard.

The highly recommended Networking and Communications options include direct Ethernet LAN connectivity with an Embedded Web Server, and serial communications. The C24 serial communications option includes both RS-232 and RS-485 which can be selected from the menu as well as both a straightforward ASCII protocol or MODBUS. The C4EI option includes both Ethernet and RS-485 ASCII/MODBUS on one device.

The iSeries are designed for easy integration with popular industrial automation, data acquisition and control programs as well as Microsoft Visual Basic and Excel. OMEGA® provides free configuration and data acquisition software and demos which makes it fast and easy to get up and running with many applications.

i/8 and i/32 FAMILY
The OMEGA® iSeries is a family of microprocessor-based instruments offered in two true DIN sizes with NEMA-4, IP65 rated front bezels. All of the instruments share the same set-up and configuration menu and method of operation, a tremendous time saver for integration of a large system.

The iSeries displays feature unique 9-segment LED characters which greatly improves alphanumeric representations. The 7-segment LED characters found on most instruments are adequate for presenting numbers, but not letters. Words are easier to read with the unique 9-segment LED characters on the iSeries, which makes operating and programming simpler and easier.

Programmable Colour Display
The OMEGA® iSeries are the first complete series of 1/8, 1/16 and 1/32 DIN process control instruments with totally programmable colour displays. The display can be programmed to change colour at any set point or alarm point.
Programmable Colour Display
iSeries Change Colour at any Setpoint
iSeries Change Colour at any Setpoint, Red, Amber and Green
For example, the instrument can be programmed to display the process value in GREEN during warm-up, switching to AMBER to signal the normal operating range, and in RED to signal an alarm condition. The changes in colour are quickly seen from a distance, and machine operators can intuitively react to changing conditions. The colours can be programmed to change back when the value drops back below the alarm point or to "latch" on until being reset by the operator.

The instrument can also be programmed to display only one unchanging colour: GREEN, AMBER, or RED. This is a useful way to let an operator identify, at a glance, process values in three separate locations, or to display three different measurements such as Temperature, Pressure, and Flow.

Designed and Manufactured in the USA
The innovative OMEGA® iSeries of meters/controllers features an extended Five (5) YEAR warranty at no extra charge. The iSeries packs a wealth of power and features into the smallest of packages, utilizing COB (chip-on-board) and SMT (surface mount technology) assembly techniques and automation. Every iSeries instrument is thoroughly calibrated and tested at several stages throughout production. The iSeries offers the highest accuracy for industrial instrumentation at 0.03% of reading. The analogue-to-digital conversion utilises proprietary 20-bit ASIC (application specific integrated circuit) patented algorithms and smart filtering.
Universal Inputs
The innovative iSeries offers the broadest selection of signal inputs available on one industrial instrument. The choices are easily selected from the Menu with four front panel pushbuttons, or by serial communications.
iSeries Controller
Process Voltage and Current
The OMEGA® iSeries measures process voltage: 0-100 millivolt, 0-1 Volt, 0-10 Volt ranges, and process current: 0-20 mA.

Analogue Output
The optional analogue output can be programmed within a range of 0-10 Vdc or 0-20 mA. It is selectable as either a control output or as a calibrated retransmission of the process value-a unique feature among controllers.

Built-in Excitation Standard
The iSeries comes standard with built-in 10 Vdc @ 60 mA or 5 Vdc @ 40 mA excitation for transmitters or other devices. Built-in excitation is not available with optional Isolated RS-232/RS-485 Serial communications.

Control Functions
The iSeries can control simple manual operation to ON-OFF and full Autotune PID control. (Selectable preset tune, adaptive tune, PID, PI, PD control modes.) The dual control outputs can be configured for a variety of independent control and alarm applications. The ramp-to-setpoint feature allows the user to define the rate of rise to setpoint, minimizing thermal shock to the load during start-up. Maximum ramp time: 99.59 (HH.MM), Soak: 00.00 to 99.59 (HH.MM), Damping: 1 to 8 in unit steps. Input types: 0 to 20 mA, 0 to 100 mV, 0 to 1 V and 0 to 10 Vdc.

Free Software

Free software is provided for easy set-up, configuration and data acquisition with the OMEGA®
iSeries.

Example SoftwareFree ActiveX Controls
Free ActiveX Controls are provided for the iSeries, making it easy to integrate the iSeries with information systems using "ActiveX Containers" such as Microsoft Visual Basic and Microsoft Excel as well as with popular OLE and OPC compliant data acquisition, process control, and industrial automation software from OMEGA®, GE Fanuc, Intellution, Rockwell Automation, Object Automation, iconics, and Wonderware among others.

Optional Isolated RS-232 and RS-485 Serial Communications
The iSeries are the first intelligent industrial instruments to offer both RS-232 and RS-485 serial communications in one instrument which can be selected from the menu.

The iSeries features both the iSeries serial protocol and MODBUS serial protocol.

Free Factory Setup and Configuration
Make installing your iSeries meter or controller easier by ordering it preconfigured by the factory, at no extra charge. You specify the input types, scaling if applicable, set points, alarm points, etc. and we will program the instruments to your specific requirements in our calibration lab prior to shipment. For a checklist of factory setup parameters, please consult your OMEGA® applications engineers. The Factory Setup and configuration option requires the serial communication "-C24" option.

Custom Configurations
Custom colour bezels and enclosures are available for Original Equipment Manufacturers. Enhance the appearance of your equipment design with custom colours. Consult the OMEGA® OEM Group. iSeries LED displays are considerably bigger, brighter and therefore more visible than displays for conventional instruments with the same DIN size. The segments in the i/8 are 21 mm (0.83") high.
