The West P6100 is part of the Plus Series of controllers that take flexibility and ease of use to new levels and is directly interchangeable with the N610 (no need to rewire, it fits into the same case)
The P6100 controller is an evolved product from the N6100. The product benefits from having more versatile features and user-friendly functionalities such as remote setpoint inputs, digital inputs, plug-in output modules, a customisable operator/HMI menu, jumperless and auto-hardware configuration, and 24VDC transmitter power supply.
The P6100 uses an advanced tuning algorithm, with selectable pre-tune and self-tuning for easier set-up. Pre-tune when enabled, allows the controller to calculate an initial set of control parameters on the way to the setpoint, (first time you use the controller) before automatically switching to self-tune when it nears the septpoint. This negates the need for you to calculate the optimum control settings, the controller does it for you. You can leave the controller in self-tune mode to continually adapt to your process, or our recommendation is to disable after the self-tune procedure has optimised your process to a stable value and the controller will use the optimised control parameters on power up from the on.
The P6100 has a modular design (plug and play) which allows for additional features, such as alarm relays, retransmission signal, remote setpoint control, transmitter power supply, and digital communications to be specified at time of order, or added later.
A useful feature is the ability to restrict the maximum power the controller outputs. This is useful if you have oversized a valve, or you have a sensitive process which would be damaged if the controller was to apply to much power.
The P6100 display strategy scan configured to have the display and setpoint adjusted in different ways. The configuration and control parameter menus are password protected.
