Thyristor Based Systems

With the introduction of the I series and P series, KAT Controls presents its family of Thyristor Heater Controllers. These Heater Controller are compact, rugged and most economical solution to completely meet the industry requirements.

Quality, repeatability and high availability form the basis for outstanding product quality in the application process. Thyristor Heater Controllers from KAT, switch control or regulate electrical energy at the start with simple applications for optimised analog Heater Controllers as cost effective solutions for complex applications.

KAT Heater Controllers are available in 1 phase, 2 phase, 3 phase input options for either Phase Angle control or Integral Cycle control.

KAT Heater Controllers can be used in all processes involving melting, heating, drying or forming which must be done precisely and reliably.
