The fast, reliable package-sealing temperature controller on a budget from West Control Solutions is configured in a minute.

GURNEE, IL—West Control Solutions, a global specialist in process and temperature control, has launched MAXVU, a compact controller that can be set up in one minute for many packaging, food and beverage, and textile industry applications.

MAXVU offers faster set-up than rival products because its start-up configuration menu only shows the most vital parameters including sensor types, units, outputs, alarms and set-point values, removing time spent scrolling through unnecessary options.

MAXVU is particularly suited for packaging tray and bag sealers, textiles applications (such as seam sealing and thermal bonding) and processes in the food and beverage sector including fryers, micro-breweries and chocolate tempering.

West Control Solutions engineering manager Curtis Uhll says: “Over-specifying temperature controllers can cause unnecessary expense at initial purchase and, more significantly, a waste of resources in terms of set-up time and ongoing operation. By limiting the parameters that need to be set, MAXVU simplifies configuration and increases efficiency for simple temperature control requirements.”

MAXVU’s ease-of-use is supported by its large display. A unique button design on the 1/16 DIN product, with the buttons at left and right of the digits on the keypad, allows an impressive 0.7in (18mm) upper digit and 0.4in (10.2mm) lower digit height in a 1.8in  (48mm) high device.

The larger digits offer increased clarity and visibility from distance to view vital process information and alarm messages that help monitor a system is running effectively. An equally impressive 3.7 x 1.8in (96x48mm ) unit is also available with 0.7in digits upper and lower.

West Control Solutions offers a comprehensive range of innovative products for process control and automation through its four leading brands: CAL, Partlow, PMA and West, providing solutions for industries involved in plastics, ovens and furnaces, laboratory, food and beverage, packaging and more for almost a century.

The company headquarters is based in the U.K. with offices worldwide. Products are sold either directly from West Control Solutions or via a global network of distributors. West Control Solutions is part of the Danaher Corporation, a Fortune 500 company with subsidiaries in over 40 countries.
