1. Mode 1 Digital Timer Controller:
Unit is set to run one ramp via foot pedal operation.
In “Mode 1” the Digital Timer Controller has the ability
to store a single adjusted ramp rate. the controller
will record the removal time to zero indicating when
the process is complete.
2. Mode 2 4 Ramp Storage Controller:
This unit functions the same as “Mode 1” with the
additional ability to store 4 seperate ramp rates.
“Mode 2” has the ability to store 4 adjusted ramp rates
3 Mode 3 Auto Ramp Controller:
The Auto Ramp “Mode 3” can store 4 adjusted ramp profiles.
The unique feature with “mode 3” is its semi-automation.
Once the unit has been set with a set point temperature and
a ramp time all the operator has to do is hit the foot pedal
to start the ramping process. When the IC is removed the
operator hits the foot pedal again and the process is stopped,
hitting the foot pedal also records the removal time.
(If the operator neglects to hit the foot pedal the second time
the unit will automatically shut off in 10 minutes.) Once the
removal time is store the unit will automatically add the
additional time required to complete the reinstallation.
This additive is a variable that can be changed by the customer.
For reinstallation the operation depresses the foot pedal again
and the unit will begin the reinstallation, at the end of the cycle
the unit automatically shuts off.

Each profile can be set for 4 seperate Ramp/Soak segments.
Also stored profiles can be linked to each other. Two
profiles can be linked togethor to give an operator
8 Ramp/Soak Segments. This unit also features an autometed process.
To activate a profile the operator simply hits the foot pedal
and walks away. The unit will shut down at the end of the process.
