The ATR902 can store up to 15 sequences. It has six keys for programming and there are also keys to stop, start the process and also step through the process. The ATR902 has 2 relays with a contact rating of 1 Amp. The ATR902 accepts sensor inputs from K, J, S, T, N, R or E type thermocouples. The ATR902 has a bar graph display indicating the progress through the program and two 4 digit displays, one for the process variable and the other for the set point. The ATR902 is able to withstand environmental conditions and an optional support bracket is available to help with mounting the controller. Desired control is maintained with on/off control or P, PI, PD or PID and auto-tuning.
