GF_LOOPER is the abbreviation of “Gefran Multiloop Controller.” This small unit controls the functions of 8 and 16 independent control channels, with display of basic parameters on shared pages and all details on individual pages for each zone.
GF_LOOPER offers the best advantages in control of multizone furnaces, temperature control of small extruders and “hot channel” control applications for injection presses.
These new Gefran controllers are based on cutting-edge hardware and software technologies:
- high-resolution TFT color, ¼ VGA screens, with GF_VEDO series touch screen and 3.5” and 5.7” monitor
- intuitive graphics software, designed for guided, “no-manual” programming
- clear and practical display of process variables and setpoints. Intuitive icons that display the state of each controller
- configuration pages for control, setpoint, and alarms parameters, with clear, multilingual explanations.
Actual control can be performed by Geflex series controllers, connected to GF_VEDO panels with high-speed Modbus RTU communication, or by installing Gilogik II series analog and digital I/O modules directly on the backplane.
GF_LOOPER offers flexible hardware architecture, simple software configuration, immediate information with detailed graphics pages.
Basic functions such as alarms management with acknowledge, clock/calendar for automatic start/stop of controls, saving of work recipes, export of historical data to USB, are standard features for unequalled flexibility.
GF_LOOPER controllers can be integrated in supervision networks with Profibus and Modbus TCP fieldbus and allow remote and web serving functions thanks to always-on Ethernet links.
