Series 16C 1/16 DIN Temperature Controller

PID Control, Auto-Tuning, Dual Display, RS-485 Communication

The compact Series 16C Temperature Controller offers accurate temperature measurement and control in a 1/16 DIN package. Designed for direct or reverse acting (cooling or heating) control, the Series 16C can be programmed for simple ON/OFF or more complex PID control functions. PID control is supported with manual or auto-tuning. Select relay, voltage or current output for control methods.

The Series 16C accepts a variety of thermocouple and RTD inputs. Process value and setpoint value are displayed simultaneously on the large dual LED. Auto-tuning, engineering units (°F or °C), and alarm status is also indicated on the faceplate. Two alarm outputs are included on the unit with 12 preprogrammed alarm functions.

Product Applications

  • Oven, boiler, or chiller control
  • Hot plates/melt pots
  • Food service equipment
  • Environmental chambers

Catalog Pages





We are trying to program a temperature control and receive the following message - Communication error > address 01: no response from controller at register 795 (031A). What could be causing this error?
The register 795 is a Modbus register. One of the reasons why there is a communication error is the -992 for the RS-485 communication is LOVELINK Protocol, if you are trying to communicate with Modbus® protocol, it will not work. See the LoveLink™III Software.
