New Televac Modular Vacuum Controller Offers Expanded Communications
HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa., June 1, 2016 – The Fredericks Company, an industry-leading innovator and manufacturer of vacuum and tilt measurement products, introduces the Televac MX200 Modular Vacuum Controller. This device, an upgrade of the Televac MM200, includes the addition of USB and enhances existing RS-232/485 communications protocols.
The Televac MX200 expands functionality for a wide range of applications where vacuum measurement is critical. The device is ideal for use in:
- Heat-treat and vacuum furnaces
- Laboratories and research
- Cryogenics • Leak detection
- Freeze drying
- Thin film deposition and coating processes
- Semiconductors The Televac MX200 controls any Televac vacuum sensor.
It includes USB, with optional RS-232/485 communications for more efficient interfacing. These new features are particularly useful in resolving any discrepancy between the MX200 and programmable logic controller (PLC) displayed readings. In addition, users can access all features through the new display panel, and the front panel shows up to eight sensors. The new device also provides a 10-millisecond response time, which is 20 times faster than the previous version.
“Upgraded communications protocols make the new Televac MX200 a versatile vacuum controller because of its expanded interfacing capabilities,” said Heidi McKenna, president of The Fredericks Company. “And because it is a modular unit, users can configure cards and control up to 10 sensors, allowing them to customize a vacuum sensing solution that best fits their needs.”
Users now can easily upgrade the controller operating system at their own facility using the standard USB connection. In addition, the Televac MX200 system accepts cards from the MM200 device, which can save cost and time. The controller is CE certified and UL listed.
With an established history of outstanding customer support, The Fredericks Company designs and assembles their products at its Pennsylvania-based facility, where they maintain full control over production of their devices.
