DIN temperature controller
Automated Control Engineering (A.C.E.) and West's DIN 6500 temperature controller is designed for basic electric heater applications.
Automated Control Engineering (A.C.E.) and West introduce the West 6500 1/16 DIN simplified temperature controller. The 6500 was designed for basic electric heater applications and uses the latest proven technology from the process industry to gain control quickly and stay there. It has a simplified operator interface and setup and support for reliable quality control.
The 6500 has a single 3 digit display which is designed for maximum visibility. The operator can easily view the actual temperature, set point and alarm value. A green LED indicates that the control is either below, above, or right on the set point. A red LED indicates the alarm status.
The controller comes with a specifically developed tuning algorithm for electric heater applications. This control requires no further tuning in most applications.
- Large, 3-digit display
- Special algorithm for electric heater application
- Combines West’s pre-tune and self-tune
- Constant display of both process and alarm status
- Set point lock security
- Optional alarm output
- Supplied pre-configured from the factor

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
