Textile Processing

Accurate temperature control is crucial for many applications including those used in the Textile industry. In the Dye Machine application described here, simple ON/OFF control isn't enough. There is a need for accurate temperature profiling. This is where the XLt with its fast response time and advanced math operations fits perfectly.

Temperature profile can be modified, saved and used again. Any XL series OCS unit provides significant amount of internal memory which makes this task easy.

The Touch Screen offers user friendly navigation and high visibility (with contrast adjustment) which guarantees ease of use.
