High Quality – Lowest Cost
Part of a range of controllers, the CRONOS® is the little brother of the CRIUS®. The CRONOS® is a high quality, low cost transmitter designed to give water treatment engineers everything that they need from a transmitter and nothing that they don’t. With no frills, costs can be kept to a minimum whilst optional communications packages allow Profibus, Modbus ASCII, Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, 4-20mA analogue outputs, and relays for alarms and control.
The CRONOS® has the capability to control up to two sensors of any type with appropriate analogue outputs and relays. Equipped with optional PID control, the CRONOS® is very able to control complex water treatment processes at a fraction of the cost of other controllers.
A CRONOS® plus Sensor equals…
- Free Chlorine Analyzer (HaloSense)
- Total Chlorine Monitor (HaloSense)
- Chlorine Dioxide Analyzer (DioSense)
- Ozone Monitor (OzoSense)
- Dissolved Oxygen Meter (OxySense)
- Suspended Solids Monitor (SoliSense®)
- Turbidity Meter (SoliSense®)
- Streaming Current Monitor (StreamerSense)
- pH Analyzer (pHSense)
- ORP Analyzer (ORPSense)
- Organics Monitor (UV254Sense)
- Biofilm Monitor (BioSense)
- Online Conductivity Monitor (ConductiSense)
- Particle Counter (CounterSense)
- Filter Monitor (FilterSense)
- Coagulation Controller (CoagSense)
- External inputs
- Choose from Standard Configurations or ‘Build Your Own’
For each sensor the CRONOS® will prompt users through calibration procedures and will remind them when maintenance is due for each sensor type.
The CRONOS® is often used in applications where the remote access capability of the CRIUS® is not required. This doesn’t mean that a CRONOS® doesn’t have the capability of control! With full PID control, the CRONOS® is often used in application areas such as:
- Water Treatment
- Drinking Water
- Waste Water
- Pool and Spa Control
- Industrial Water
- Food and Drink
- Paper and Pulp
The CRONOS® is a universal controller capable of outputting a PID control signal via an analogue (4-20mA) or a pulse width modulated relay (to control for example, an on/off pump). With the latest in communication options the CRONOS® is capable of running Profibus, Modbus or TCP/IP via Ethernet.
The ability to provide maintenance reminders is very attractive to larger users with multiple operators where it can be easy to miss scheduled maintenance.
The CRONOS® can also come in a multitude of languages making it suitable for use in any market.
Customers requiring additional functionality such as downloadable datalogging or remote access via the internet should consider the CRIUS® controller.
