The ultra-compact CNi8C and CNiS8C controllersare similar to the full size i8 in an ultra-compactenclosure. Only 51 mm (2") behind the panel. The i8C/iS8C displaycan be programmed to changecolor between GREEN, AMBER, or RED at any setpoint or alarmpoint. The i8C/iS8C includes the option of bothRS232 and RS485 in 1 instrumentwith the straightforward OMEGA™ ASCII protocol. If Modbus is required, we recommend our latest Platinum controllers - CNPT_SERIES CNPT Series.

The i8C comesstandard with your choice of2 control or alarm outputs in almostany combination: solid state relaysrated at 0.5 A @ 120/240 VacForm "C" SPDT relays rated at3 A @ 120/240 Vac pulsed 10 Vdcoutput for use with an external SSRor analog output (0 to 10 Vdc or0 to 20 mA) selectable for control orretransmission of the process value.

The universal temperature andprocess instrument offer a selection of 10 thermocoupletypes as well as 2-, 3- or 4-wireRTDs, process voltage and current.The i8C controller is ideal for use with transmittersand amplified transducers. Built-inexcitation is standard (24 Vdc@ 25 mA). The units handle0 to 20 mA process current andprocess voltage in 3 scales:0 to 100 mV, 0 to 1V, and 0 to 10V.

The strain/process instrument(model iS) meters and controllersmeasure inputs from load cells,pressure transducers, and most anystrain gage sensor. Input rangesinclude 0 to 100 mVdc -100 mVdcto 1 Vdc 0 to 10 Vdc in addition to0 to 20 mA. Excitation for transducersof 5 V and 10 V is standard.

Theenclosure has aNEMA 4 (IP65) rated front bezel and electronics are removable fromthe front panel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good limit controller, decent reliability, ok QC Using the CNi16-AL for a limit controller isn't difficult. The calibration on them has been hit or miss and the manual says to press: enter, up, enter. When it is: enter, menu, enter to calibrate. Recently I had one that was reading off by 20% no matter how it was calibrated or even with an offset it may have been defective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable and simple wiring Fairly simple to configure and easy wiring. Needed a dual alarm to replace a failed unit on a weather-ometer chamber. One alarm for turning on cooling water and the other for overtemperature shutdown. Works great with 3-wire RTD. I didn't get into changing display colors as the unit is behind a hinged panel.

What are the dimensions for the cut out of the CN i16?

Asked by: Kees
Thank you for the inquiry Kees. For the CNi16 which has a 1/16 DIN size, each side of the square panel cutout should be 1.772 +.024/-.000 inches (45.00 +0.61/-0.00 mm).

Is it possible to flip the relay output so that when the unit is in a normal condition per the alarm settings, the NO relay is closed; and when the unit then goes into alarm state, the NO relay opens?

Asked by: MetzC
Thank you for inquiry Mech. Unfortunately, this unit does not have that ability to flip the relay output. Please check our Platinum series PID controller CNPT or CNI which does have that function.
