Process Inputs

Inputs: Field selectable: 0.4 to 2.0 V, 1 to 5 V, 0 to 10 V, -10 to 20 mV, 0 to 100 mV. 4-20 mA input requires 100Ω resistor connected across input terminals (order P/N: PDX-RES1).
Accuracy: ±0.1% FS ±1 count
Decimal Point: Up to 3 decimals: 9.999, 99.99, 999.9, or 9999
Calibration: All inputs are calibrated at the factory
Scale Range: User programmable over entire range
Transmitter Supply: 14 to 18 VDC @ 20 mA; available instead of retransmitting analog output; selection is made through the front panel.

Limit Control Relay and Indicators

Ratings: Latching, 1 Form C (SPDT); rated 3 A @ 30 VDC or 3 A @ 250 VAC resistive load
Relay Operation: User may select high or low limit operation, forward or reverse (fail-safe) mode.
Reverse Operation (Fail-Safe): Programmable; relay coil is energized in non-alarm condition. In case of power failure, relay will go to alarm state.
Forward Operation: Relay coil is energized in alarm condition. In case of power failure, relay will go to non-alarm state.
Hysteresis: 0-10% FS, user selectable; manual reset allowed after condition has been corrected.
Out LED: Relay status indicator. LED is on when relay is de-energized (during over limit conditions in reverse operation).
Over Limit LED: Over LED is on when system is in over limit condition. LED will go off once system returns to normal condition.
Over Limit Timer Display: Time stored since last occurrence of over limit condition or until controller is turned off.

Alarm Relays

Ratings: 1 Form A (SPST); rated 1 A @ 30 VDC or 1 A @ 250 VAC resistive load
High/Low Alarm: User may program alarm for absolute value, high or low operation, forward or reverse (fail-safe) mode.
Deviation Alarm: User may program relay for high, low, or high/low range deviation alarm, forward or reverse (fail-safe) mode.
Alarm Deadband: 0-100% FS, user selectable
Alarm Delay: 0 to 99 minutes and 59 seconds
Reverse Operation (Fail-Safe): Programmable; relay coil is energized in non-alarm condition. In case of power failure, relay will go to alarm state.
Forward Operation: Relay coil is energized in alarm condition. In case of power failure, relay will go to non-alarm state.
Auto Alarm Initialization: Normal and standby operation. Normal alarm will reflect the state of the input to the controller at all times. Standby alarm will not trigger if the change to alarm state is a result of power up cycle, set point change, or alarm configuration change.

4-20 mA Retransmitting Output

  • Connect up to 30 Nova Controllers
  • View PV, SP, and Alarm Status Simultaneously
  • Control Set Points
  • Log, View, and Save Data in Spreadsheet Files


System Requirements: Windows® 9598ME2000XPVista7
Communications: An RS-232 to RS-485 or USB to RS-485 converter may be used for communication with a PC and Nova Multi-Monitoring Software.
Number of Units: Up to 30 Nova Controllers
Baud Rate: 9,600 to 19,200 bps
Data Logging: Graph and save data as .hdr format. Each controller saves graphs independently. Data exportable in spreadsheet format.
Logging Interval: 1 second to 24 hours

Simultaneous Monitoring

Simultaneously monitor up to 30 Nova Controllers and view the PV, SP, and alarm status for all connected controllers. The main view screen also displays the basic sku numbers of all connected units. Any series
of Nova Controllers with the serial communications option may be monitored with this software.

Simultaneously View Up to 30 Nova Controllers

Remotely Control Set Points

Program each of the 4 set points through a detailed operation screen available for every connected controller. In addition, control outputs can be set to run or stop, auto tuning enabled, and automatic or manual control established.

Monitor and Control Common Parameters

Data Acquisition

PV and SP data can be logged independently for each unit. This data can be graphed using the Data Viewer for quick and clear analysis. Logged data can be exported into spreadsheet format.
