Uncompromising controllers: RT7000

The RT7000 is the top expansion level of the RT family. From 8 zones to 128 zones, this system can map as wide a range as a multi-zone controller. Two 32-zone controllers can then be expanded to 64-zones via cascading. Larger systems are implemented as customer-specific variants. Operation is via a 7-inch touch display or via our innovative App-based remote control unit.

Particular performance features:

  •  Particularly fast control with minimal overshoot and thus protection of particularly sensitive heaters, such as in the nozzles.
  • Intuitive operation and rapid integration
  • Remote control via APP and ELOVISON

Clearly illustrated control surfaces ensure intuitive operation. The user can choose between different display variants: Standard zone illustration, process illustration or graph/PID illustration.

In an emergency: Alarm

The heating process is automatically interrupted at temperature over/undershoot, power surge or sensor failure (sensor break). Rapid, unplanned temperature or energy increase, e.g., at a nozzle, can be an indicator of a leak. The system is switched off. To ensure that no data is lost, it is possible to set a back-up via USB storage.

Product variants:

  •  8, 12, 16, 24, 32 zones
  • From 1st half-year 2021: 40, and 48 zones and cascadable to 96 zones.
  • Larger variants are available as custom solution
  • Fuses can be accessed from the inside. In another upcoming product variant (1st half-year 2021) the fuses will also be available externally.
  • Passive cooling
