Can anyone offer assistance on Omron digital temperature controllers (E5CN) ? Is there any links ,besides Omron for quick programming guides.

Omron.:(

If the controllers are anything like their PLCs, you are in for a bumpy ride.

Uhmmm.......yeah. Have fun.
I've never had a lot of luck with programming any Omron stuff. I did find their tech support pretty helpful when I called though.

yeah, I am having issues with these Omron TC's . I am used to fuzypro & fusi , but the manual I have for the Omron's is very confusing . But come Monday I'll try tech support.

Trying to follow the manual to program the controller is "confusing" , compared to the ones I normally use. The TC's are not putting out heat on the elements. The 3 other Fusi's on the other elements work fine. My company "saving a buck"

Ok, omron are set by default to pid. If you need on off, that will have to be changed. The signal to the ssr can be done two ways. If you are using an external doc supply then the controller should have a relay output. If you need to have the controller supply signal to ssr, then you need controller with voltage output option. Do you know which options your controller has?

OK I have the relay output. And My Omron controller has voltage output. But I think pdi will be OK if it already on it. The other TC's don't mention any pdi.

Pid controls the output like the element of a stove where it cycles on and off to maintain a constant temperature.

On/off will control like a standard thermostat.

If controller has voltage output, are you getting the output voltage you require and is the polarity correct?

OK so pid is what I want (its what the other 3 Fusi's do) . Now I'm not getting any dc volts to the K thermocouple but I don't have anything programmed on to the Omron.
