The SuperNova PD500 Series of PID Process & Temperature Controllers are a complete line of PID and on/off controllers. Available in popular 1/4, 1/8 (V), and 1/16 DIN sizes, and with a shallow depth behind panel of only 2.5" (63 mm) they are easy to fit into almost any panel, product, or enclosure.

Voltage, current (with external resistor), and direct temperature thermocouple and RTD inputs make them an excellent choice for any control application requiring easy to change, visible set points.
This modern line of controllers shows the process variable (PV), set value (SV), and manipulated value (output level%, MV) on a striking reverse polarity LCD screen. The front panel has indicators for RUN, COM, OUT 1 & 2, REM, MANU, TUNE, and LOCK. Indicators for units (˚C, ˚F, %, or none) can also be displayed.
Changing between auto and manual control modes is accomplished by holding two buttons that are labelled SET and Down Button. A graphic on the front panel indicates that these buttons control the Auto/Manual (A/M) function:
The main control outputs can be a 4-20 mA (SCR), voltage pulse (SSR), or relay output. A secondary control output relay is standard, which allows for one or two direction SV control (i.e., heating and cooling).
Two alarm relays increase the utility of the SuperNova controller. The relays can be used for alarm or simple control applications. The alarms may relate directly to the process variable, or be based on deviation from the current set value.
A 4-20 mA retransmit option is available to retransmit the process variable, set value, or output level. This is especially useful for temperature inputs like thermocouples and RTDs. Other options include a secondary 4-20 mA input to remotely control the set value, and RS-485 for Modbus communication.
A mini-USB port may be used for a direct PC connection to run the SuperNova software for monitoring, programming, and data logging. This USB port is located on the rear behind the panel for PD510 1/16 DIN models, and on the front behind an IP65 rubber tab on PD520 and PD530 1/8 and 1/4 DIN models.
