Consumers of heating products each have their own specific application requirements. To ensure the success of their industrial or commercial projects, consumers must turn to products that are equal parts unique and innovative.

At Pelonis Technologies, our team has provided high-quality heating solutions for nearly 30 years. We fully understand the importance of providing newer, more diverse products to meet and exceed modern consumer needs. To support our valued customer base, we have added several temperature controller products to our existing catalog. These controllers are ideal for use with our product lineup including DC blowers, Micro fans, PTC heaters and crossflow fans.

More Products, More Options

temp-controllerOur temperature controllers excel in laboratory testing, temperature regulation, and various other heating applications. Depending on the particular product series, these controllers afford exceptional benefits to end users.

Pelonis’ line of temperature controllers includes Micro, 4-Phase, and Digital series controllers.

Our Solutions:

  • MT Series Micro Temperature & Time Controllers – Small and lightweight, these are ideal for restrictive area applications. Simple-to-use controllers with ON/OFF control methods and over 10,000 custom specifications.
  • DTC-S Series 4-Phase Temperature & Time Controllers – Offering four different time and power settings, these products have compatibility with both AC and DC voltages and utilize PWM for power input. Compatible with our DC fans and DC blowers, as well as our AC fans and AC blowers.
  • NTC 4-Phase Temperature & Time Controllers – These controllers also utilize PWM, but instead of different power settings, NTC controllers offer four unique temperature settings. With an NTC temperature sensor, these products afford precision of 20°C to 60°C ±1°C.
  • DTC-A Series Digital Temperature & Time Controllers – Designed for precision heating, these products can control temperatures within 1°C of the user specified level. This series of products can be set to time intervals that range from 30 minutes to 24 hours.
  • DTC-T Series AC to DC Digital Temperature & Time Controllers – This series of controllers offers the best in digital monitoring and regulation. These controllers are capable of recalling past user settings automatically, and are compatible with many other heating products.

How to Create Specifications for a Heating and Cooling System

Posted by Sam Pelonis | Dec 22, 2014 7:00:00 AM | 0 Comments

Problem-free operation of heating and cooling systems begins well before consumers even switch on their machines.

During the spec phase, designers of these systems must factor in several considerations while asking themselves pertinent questions. Here are three such questions accompanied by some helpful answers. 

1. Is the heating/cooling system properly sized?

Cooling_FanProper sizing is crucial for ideal speccing of these systems. When calculating the heating and cooling requirements for a given facility, it is important to avoid the olden practice of “rule of thumb” sizing, which equates system size with a facility’s total square footage.

Regarding sizing, be sure to consider these factors: cubic footage to be heated and cooled, insulation and rate of air infiltration, and industry standard protocols for product sizing. These design points will help heating and cooling systems avoid serious issues in the future, including short cycling and excessive equipment wear.

2. With all the different temperature control devices on the market, which is the best for the application?

Delivering optimum heating and cooling is one of the expected outcomes when speccing a new system. Thermal controls are an important part of maintaining the correct temperature; there are various thermal control products available on the market, enabling you to maintain a comfortable environment regardless of building size.

A simple electromechanical control may be all that is required for some applications. Other situations may require more elaborate controls and sensors for multiple zones. In addition, predictable schedules may demand newer controls, incorporating artificial intelligence or remote web-based controls for warming and cooling prior to arriving at the facility.

3. What potential electrical problems could affect the performance of the system?

Today’s heating and cooling systems offer many benefits that aren’t available in older systems. However, most of the electronics in modern systems can create issues not found in electromechanical systems, such as a low voltage specification; if the specification isn’t met, motor life will shorten and cause the electronic component to malfunction.

When speccing a system that will use backup power, it’s important to verify that all incoming power sources meet the requirements of the heating/cooling system. Frequently, this means the power supply meets a combined variation in voltage and frequency of 10 percent, provided the frequency variation doesn’t exceed five percent of the rated frequency.
