Powerful and versatile control of heating elements

The picture shows the flexible, modular Siplus HCS4200 Heating Control System.

The new POM4220 Highend power output module for 230/277 and 400/480 V networks features eight outputs, each with up to 20 amperes of output. Previously only 16 amperes was possible. The current measurement integrated in each output means that heating elements connected in parallel can now be monitored.
In addition to use in 230/277 and 400/480 V networks, the new POM4220 Flexible power output module is also suitable for heating solutions in 45, 70 and 110 V grid. This makes it possible to implement safety extra-low voltage applications, or connect short infrared radiators enabling finely-graded heat input.
The TIA Portal Engineering Framework makes it particularly easy to integrate the Siplus HCS Heating Control System into the automation system. An HCS program library and application examples simplify engineering still further. With the Proneta software tool, it is easy to integrate and start up the Siemensheating control system in Profinet networks: Wiring tests are possible at the installation stage, for instance.
Heating control systems from Siemens are used all over the world in a wide variety of sectors and applications: for drying paints and coating, for example, or for molding plastics and lightweight materials, as well as plastics welding and baking in infrared ovens.
Siemens has equipped the flexible, modular Siplus HCS4200 Heating Control System for switching and controlling heat emitter arrays and heating elements with two new power output modules (POM). Each output is now even more powerful and it is possible to control voltages from 45 V, making this versatile heating control system even more flexible, and suitable for use in safety extra-low voltage applications, for example.
