505 Digital Control
The 505 control is packaged in an industrial hardened enclosure designed to be mounted within a system control panel located in a plant control room or next to the turbine. The control’s front panel serves as both a programming station and operator control panel (OCP). This user-friendly front panel allows engineers to access and program the unit to the specific plant’s requirements, and plant operators to easily start/stop the turbine and enable/disable any control mode. Password security is used to protect all unit program mode settings. The controller’s 8.4-inch (21 cm) graphical display allows operators to view actual and setpoint values from the same screen, simplifying turbine operation.
Turbine interface input and output wiring access is located on the controller’s lower back panel. Un-pluggable terminal blocks allow for easy system installation, troubleshooting, and replacement.
