Please note that there will be some differences between the Panels offered for different devices. This is required for optimizations or meeting price points. Please refer to your specific requirements in quote the for the exact features and instruments that are included.

Three-Phase Control Panel Options 

The three-phase control panels offered by MHI are of two kinds. The ITRIPAN is for steady loads, and the TRIPAN – when more complex control is required for a process.

A significant difference between the two kinds of panels lies in the functionality of the SCR in the panels. The SCRs used in the TRIPANs offer softer load control and significantly more sophisticated control options with current limit stabilization.

ITRIPAN 

  • One control zone
  • One limit controller
  • Quality controller
  • Contactor for the load.
  • Fuses
  • Indicator for heater-on
  • Junctions for thermocouples
  • NEMA – 4  or NEMA 12. Box cooling 3R Style
  • SCR -2 pole, zero-crossover type with proportional functions.

TRIPAN andTRIPA-PLUS

  • One to multiple control zones. The TRIPAN-PLUS has PLC and touchscreen HMI controls.
  • As required, limit controllers (Typically Eurotherm or similar)
  • Quality process controller (Typically, the brands offered are Eurotherm or similar. cUL, CSA, UL CE Rated)
  • Contactor(s) for the load
  • Fuses
  • Indicators for heater-on and other indicators
  • Junctions for thermocouples
  • NEMA – 4  or NEMA 12. Box cooling 3R Style or AC cooling
  • SCR -Phase angle fired with current limit
  • Ethernet as required or RS485 (customer option for communication).
  • Optional PLCs depending on the type of device
  • Optional HMI depending on control options, and type of device
  • EStop and remote Estop connection
  • Other dry contacts for customer integration into systems like Bacnet

FAQ:  People often ask how much energy does the control panel dissipate.  Ans:  Unlike induction-powered heaters, the control units do not dissipate power except as lighting (negligible as the MHI panels use LED lights) or from the SCRs when firing at less than 100% power.
