ROPEX RES Resistron RES-5011 ...

skip introduction and move to features, modifications and ordering information...

The ROPEX Resistron 5000 Series of controllers utilize microprocessor technology for sensorless, closed-loop control of impulse heating elements. ROPEX controllers offer a range of configurations and protocols for simple plug-in system integration.

The use of ROPEX Resistron controls goes beyond impulse heat sealers, form fill machines, and converting equipment. ROPEX Resistron controllers also provide a solution for an extensive range of heating applications:

  • Heat-seal-bands and cutting-wires ... for hermetic sealing, and trimming of flexible films

  • Zebra and intermittent heat-seal-bands ... for skip seals and packaging ventilation

  • Impulse heating tools ... for activation of adhesives used in the bonding of non-thermoplastic materials

  • Flexible or rigid impulse blades ... for scoring, cutting, and bending of thermoplastics

  • Impulse heater coils ... for hot air bonding, and scoring of thermoplastics

  • 2D and 3D contour heat-seal-elements ... for custom shaped heat-sealing, and heat-seal plus cuttings

ROPEX Resistron RES-5011 controller is at home in a diverse array of industries:

    • Aerospace
    • Automotive
    • Cosmetics
    • Chemical
    • Dental
    • Defense and Military
    • Electronics
    • Energy and Renewable Energy
    • Food and Beverage
    • General Industrial
    • Healthcare and Hygiene
    • Laboratory and Research
    • Medical
    • Pharmaceutical

The microprocessor technology endows the Ropex Resistron RES5011 RES Heat Seal Temperature Controller with previously unattainable capabilities:

  • Very simple operation thanks to AUTOCAL, the automatic zero calibration function.

  • Good dynamic response of the control system thanks to AUTOTUNE, which adapts automatically to the controlled system.

  • High precision thanks to further improved control accuracy and linearization of the heatsealing band characteristic.

  • High flexibility: The AUTORANGE function covers a secondary voltage range from 0.4 V to 120V and a current range from 30A to 500A.

  • Automatic adjustment to the line frequency in the range from 47Hz to 63Hz.

  • Increased protection against dangerous conditions, such as overheating of the heatsealing band.

The RES-5011 RESISTRON temperature controller is equipped with two EtherNet/IP interfaces. These interfaces can be used to control all of the controller functions and query controller information.

The ACTUAL temperature of the heatsealing band is supplied to the EtherNet/IP interface and to an analog 0 to 10V DC output. The real heatsealing band temperafure can thus be displayed on an external temperature meter (e.g. ATR-x).

The RES-5011 features an integrated error diagnosis function, which tests both the external system (heatsealing band, wiring etc.) and the internal electronics and outputs a selective error message in case of a fault.

To increase operational safety and interference immunity, all EtherNet/IP signals are electrically isolated from the controller and the heating circuit

Either coding switches on the temperature controller itself or the EtherNet/IP interface can be used to adapt to different heatsealing band alloys (Alloy 20, Low-Ex etc.) and set the required temperalure range (0 ... 300°C, 0 ... 500°C, etc.).

The compact design of the Ropex RES-5011 Resistron Temperature Controller with plug-in connections make this controller an ease to install.
