To minimize or altogether eliminate property loss, companies use products that conform to the Factory Mutual standard.The E5_C-600 is ideal for any application where the need to prevent a “temperature runaway” condition that can compromise operator safety, or damage equipment and product.

LCD display

High-contrast LCD display for best visibility

The large high-contrast white LED display featured by the new controllers provides exceptional clarity and can be read from a distance and from almost any angle, irrespective of the ambient lighting conditions. This not only maximises convenience for users, but also virtually eliminates the risk of reading errors.

Easy Set-up

Easy set-up, quick and intuitive operation

Setting up the controllers is made easy by the incorporation of auto-tuning algorithms, and by Omron’s new intuitive CX-Thermo support software. This enables faster parameter setting and straightforward device adjustment as well as greatly simplifying maintenance. A time saving shift key is also provided on the controller front panel to allow rapid adjustment of set values, alternatively functions like Auto- Tuning or RUN/STOP could be associated

Precise control

Excellent control performance

Accurate and responsive control is assured by the fast 50 ms sampling time of the new controllers and by the use of Omron’s 2-PID control algorithm. This powerful and patented algorithm provides enhanced control stability, which guarantees consistent product quality. For less demanding applications, the E5CC/E5EC/E5AC controllers also support simple on/off control.

Useful functions

Usefull added features and functions.jpg

Useful added functions and features

To maximise their versatility, the controllers incorporate a range of new features. These include a timer function, a heat and cool PID function, a set-point ramp function, enhanced alarm mode and enhanced manual output. These features are complemented by a remote set-point input, a transfer output, an event input and an auxiliary output.

Bag sealing

In sealing applications speed of recovery is very important. Each time the sealing jaws close heat is drawn away into the product. The ability of the E5_C to read and react to any drop in temperature means that the quality of the seal is maintained while operating at high or low speeds. In case of alarm or malfunction the bright blinking display is warning the operator instantly so he can carry out counter measures

Harsh environment

Control products can be subjected to harsh environments where they can be splashed during the process or covered in dust or get warm through their location. The E5_C, E5CSV, H7CX, H5CX and K3HB all feature a NEMA4X (IP66 equivalent) front panels so are suitable for the use in these applications, also the low profile fascia means that they are less prominent in the front of the panel and so less likely to become dirty.

Oven control

External influences can cause the temperature to deviate from the required set value. With the E5_C it is possible to program the level at which the display starts blinking. Alarm options include deviation from set point, where if the set point is changing the alarm moves with it. Absolute alarms where they are referenced to 0, standby so the alarms will not be active during the set point has been reached. Latching which means that once triggered they can only be deactivated by removing power. This is ideal for remote or unmanned processes, as the alarm will remain until the machinery is next visited.

Baking oven

In many applications it is important to control the speed of approach to set point as well as maintain it at a preset time once reached. This rate of rise control helps to prevent over cooking of the outside of the product. However multistage control is not normally required. The E5_C contains a simple two stage function, controlling the rise to set point and also the sinking of temperature versus time can be programmed.


Faster input sampling and control period

This gives faster, more precise heater control in rapidly changing, disturbance-sensitive applications. With a sampling period time of only 50ms any quick changing processes can be reliably regulated.

Process Value blinking display

This provides crystal-clear process status, even from a distance and without the need for interpreting the values. When one of the heaters is not at set-point the Process Value can start blinking to alert any member of staff (detecting a bad sealing at an early stage, for example).

Loop break alarm and sensor break alarm (with forced MV option)

In plastics production the tool used to make the product is changed quite often. Frequent reconnecting of the sensor or heater can result in a wire break (a broken thermocouple, for example). These alarms quickly detect such problems in the process.

Basic (2-step) programmer

In many thermal processes (food, brick, pottery etc.) a small element of timing is required. This feature enables you to ramp up to a set-point and set the dwell time period. At the end of this time, the process stops or continues with an indication alarm to alert the operator. With this feature, a fixed minimum or maximum curing/baking time is assured in a smooth, controlled way.   Alternatively you can set different steepness for the ramp-down period, e.g. allowing a soft decrease of temperature to avoid structural cracks of the heat treated object.

Easy to connect, set-up and operate

The E5_C series can be easily connected, set-up and operated in only a few steps using the instrument’s 5 front keys. Our CX-Thermo software and useful navigation assistant for intuitive settings is allowing a very quick parameter setting, easier device adjustment and simpler maintenance.

Push-In Plus Technology brings value to control panel

Push-In Plus termination allows E5CC-B and E5EC-B units to be mounted closer together as wire termination direction is coming from the back of the controller rather than the side. This enables panel builders to reduce panel size if needed. This results in greater efficiency from design to assembly, leading to lower internal costs for panel builders, end users and OEMs.

CX-Thermo enables faster parameter set-up, easier device adjustment and simpler maintenance. It dramatically reduces the time and effort needed to set and manage temperature control parameters, providing advanced creating, editing and batch-downloading functions.

CX-One / CX-One Lite

CX-One Splash_US.jpg
CX-One software allows users to build, configure and program a host of devices such as PLCs, HMIs and motion-control systems and networks using just one software package with one installation and license number. This greatly reduces the complexity of the configuration and allows automation systems to be programmed or configured with minimal training.

E5CC/E5EC/E5AC sets new standards in temperature control

Temperature control has taken a giant leap forward with our next generation of controllers – the E5CC/E5EC/E5AC, which have set new global standards in the crucial areas of precision, user friendliness and control performance. This new series feature large easy-to-read displays, fast simple set up and 50 ms sampling period time. The compact units, which project only 60 mm behind the panel, are also easy to accommodate and install, even in cramped locations.
