The Custom Control Systems DC-5500 is an easy-to-program, user-friendly
digital control designed for use with a variety of industrial
dryers. The DC-5500 provides total integration into a dryer,
as it controls the basket motors, automatic doors, tilting functions;
and directs the blower motors and flame controls. Versatility
is an invaluable feature of the DC-5500, as it can be used with
variable-frequency basket drive systems, proportional valve flame
controls, ambient and outlet humidity sensors, inlet, outlet,
and ambient temperature sensors, and one-way and two-way tilting
Sensitive, Economic System
The standard DC-5500 includes an outlet temperature sensor. In
this configuration, the DC-5500 will maintain a programmed outlet
temperature for a pre-set time during the drying cycle. During
cooldown, the DC-5500 will either cool the goods to a set temperature,
cool them for a predetermined time, or both.
When configured with the optional inlet temperature sensor, the
DC-5500 will also maintain the inlet air temperature to prevent
damaging fragile and heat-sensitive fabrics. When equipped with
ambient and outlet humidity sensors, the DC-5500 will monitor
the moisture actually removed from the goods in the machine,
to prevent over- or under-drying and reduce drying cycle time.
Reliable, Tested Hardware
The hardware options include essential components such as nonvolatile
memory, real-time clock and calendar, analog input channels,
timers, counters and optically-isolated DC I/O lines. An RS-485
communications port is provided to facilitate remote programming
and data collection between controls or a personal computer.
The display and control panel consists of a 31-key membrane panel,
2 - 40 character alphanumeric vacuum fluorescent displays, and
40 (28 custom-labeled) LED indicators that continuously indicate
the status of inputs and outputs. The DC-5500 is designed to
work with the IO-5500 Input/Output module.
