ROPEX RES Resistron RES-430 ...

skip introduction and move to features, modifications and ordering information...

The ROPEX Resistron 400 Series of controllers utilize microprocessor technology for sensorless, closed-loop control of impulse heating elements. ROPEX controllers offer a range of configurations and protocols for simple plug-in system integration.

The use of ROPEX Resistron controls goes beyond impulse heat sealers, form fill machines, and converting equipment. ROPEX Resistron controllers also provide a solution for an extensive range of heating applications:

  • Heat-seal-bands and cutting-wires ... for hermetic sealing, and trimming of flexible films

  • Zebra and intermittent heat-seal-bands ... for skip seals and packaging ventilation

  • Impulse heating tools ... for activation of adhesives used in the bonding of non-thermoplastic materials

  • Flexible or rigid impulse blades ... for scoring, cutting, and bending of thermoplastics

  • Impulse heater coils ... for hot air bonding, and scoring of thermoplastics

  • 2D and 3D contour heat-seal-elements ... for custom shaped heat-sealing, and heat-seal plus cuttings

ROPEX Resistron RES-430 controller is at home in a diverse array of industries:

    • Aerospace
    • Automotive
    • Cosmetics
    • Chemical
    • Dental
    • Defense and Military
    • Electronics
    • Energy and Renewable Energy
    • Food and Beverage
    • General Industrial
    • Healthcare and Hygiene
    • Laboratory and Research
    • Medical
    • Pharmaceutical

Ropex Resistron RES-430 Heat Seal Controller

The microprocessor technology endows the Ropex Resistron RES430 RES Heat Seal Temperature Controller with previously unattainable capabilities:

  • Very simple operation thanks to AUTOCAL, the automatic zero calibration function.

  • Good dynamic response of the control system thanks to AUTOTUNE, which adapts automatically to the controlled system.

  • High precision thanks to further improved control accuracy and linearization of the heatsealing band characteristic.

  • High flexibility: Secondary voltage range from 12V to 42V, current range from 20A to 92A.

  • Automatic adjustment to the line frequency in the range from 47Hz to 63Hz.

  • Increased protection against dangerous conditions, such as overheating of the heatsealing band.

A time control (timer) function integrated in the controller enables the complete heatsealing process to be controlled on simple machines, such as table heatsealing tools. A Configurable relay output can be used to drive motors, energize magnets, etc.

The process data is represented on an LC display with 4 lines and 20 characters. Various display languages can be selected.

The real heatsealing temperature is visualized on display as both a digital number °C and in the form of a dynamic bar.

In addition to the digital and bar indications on the display, the ACTUAL temperature of the heatsealing band is supplied to an electrically isolated, analog 0 ... 10VDC output. The real heatsealing band temperature can thus be displayed on an external temperature meter (e.g. ATR-x).

The Ropex RES-430 Resistron Temperature Controller also features an integrated fault diagnosis function, which tests both the external system (heatsealing band, wiring etc.) and the internal electronics and outputs a selective error message in case of a fault.

The menu in the temperature controller itself can be used to adapt to different heatsealing band alloys (Alloy-20, Low-Ex etc.) and set the required temperature range (0 ... 300°C, 0 ... 500°C, etc.).

The Ropex RES-430 Resistron Temperature Controller consists of two components: a motherboard with power section for installation in the machine frame and a separate display terminal. The compact design and the plug-in connections make this controller an ease to install.
