The Eurotherm Configuration IR (infrared) clip connects to the front of the controller and establishes communication via an IR link. This allows you to interface with the controller directly from the front of the installed panel, without removing the controller from the panel. The use of the clip provides a transparent means of interfacing with the controller while causing no disruption to the process being controlled.
The IR clip establishes an RS232 communication link with the 3500 series unit via the front accessible IR port, available as standard on the 3504 and 3508 controllers. The operator can then use a laptop to interface with the 3500 controller. The iTools configuration software can be used to monitor, catalog, or reconfigure the controller as required.
* This product is for use with the 3504 and 3508 controllers ONLY
