The OMEGA™ CS8DPT/CS8EPT is a portable benchtop digital controller and with a large color-changing display. This benchtop controller features 4 Digit dual LED or 6 Digit displays that can be programmed to change color between Green, Amber, and Red at any setpoint or alarm point. Other options include, serial communications, and Ethernet.
This universal temperature and process instrument handles 10 common types of thermocouples, multiple RTDs,thermistors and several process (DC) voltage & current ranges, and strain type of inputs.

Note: Power cords are available from OMEGA.
Embedded Internet This OMEGA benchtop devices can serve Web pages over an Ethernet LAN or even over the Internet, making it possible to monitor and control a process through a Web browser (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer®) from anywhere in the facility or anywhere in the world.
Remote Control For example, using an CS8DPt Series temperature controller to control a heater, an engineer can monitor the temperature, change setpoints or alarm points, turn the heater on and off, or make other modifications from anywhere on the local network or anywhere on the Internet. The Web pages are easily customized, and secure, password protected access to the devices is easily controlled. And it requires absolutely no special software on the engineer’s computer to view the data and “supervise” the controller— nothing other than a Web browser.
E-Mail and Alarm In fact, the Cs8DPt controller can even send an e-mail to the engineer (or anyone he or she chooses) about an alarm condition or to update the status. Leveraging the technology of the Internet, the engineer could receive a message from the controller on an Internet-enabled pager or cell phone.
Most remarkable is that all this can be accomplished without a computer. The OMEGA™ CS8DPt controller with fully loaded communication options connects directly to the Ethernet network—not to the serial port of a computer functioning as a “server” and “master” to “slave” instruments connected through serial communications. With the loaded C24 option, these devices are also available with RS232 and RS485, and MODBUS serial communications.

Unit came 3 months late and it will not power upI ordered this unit back in November and got it end of March. When it finally came, it did not power up. Upon taking with technical support they were not able to find the problem so the unit needs to be returned to be repaired or exchanged, maybe in another 3 months. I am VERY dissapointed.

Good Unit. Much Bigger Than ExpectedThis controller is a definite improvement over its predecessors. We have several CSC32s, and CSi32s in our lab, and this controller is much better. The software is much better than expected, and I definitely prefer using this controller for synthesis. The only issue is the size. This unit is monstrous compared to its predecessors. We use our controllers in fume hoods to control heating mantles, and this unit has to live outside the hood because of space constraints. If they could make this unit in the same form factor as the old units, it would have 5 stars easy.

Easy to use, works wellPurchased this unit and it's predecessor. They're really easy to use and work well to control the 4 Amp cartridge heaters we're using in the lab. We used the auto tune PID feature, which took about 5 minutes. The user interface is a bit confusing, until you read the manual.
