™CompleteSense Controller w/ separate Temperature Controller:

Temperature sensing and Level control circuitry are incorporated into the probe, and a separate Electronic Temperature controller, is added for water temperature control and monitoring. This method controls the basin heater with a 3 wire PT100 RTD (Built into the probe) and a 1/16 Din temperature controller. This version is a more expensive version than the standard, but can monitor exact basin water temperatures, and allows for adjustments of temperature settings.

Descriptions

™CompleteSense is an electronic controller with combined Temperature sensor & Level control in a single probe. The primary application is low temperature and low liquid level cutoff protection in cooling tower basins. Temperature and level measurements are detected at the tip of the stainless-steel probe.

 

™CompleteSense monitors the temperature in the cold water basin of a cooling tower and provides on and off operation of the basin heater element. The set-point is typically programmed at 42OF with an operating band width of 5OF. The adjustable set-point range is from -40 to 176OF   (-40 to 80OC). When the temperature drops to 40OF, the probe energizes the power contactor(s) energizing the basin heater element. The ™CompleteSense de-energizes the power contactor at 45OF. An alarm contact closes when the temperature in the cold water basin is 35 OF or less.

 

The low water cutout circuit will not allow the heater to energize unless the sensor is submerged in water. The sensor should be located at least one inch higher than the heater element assuring the heater element is covered with water before energizing. (see Basin Heater location PDF below) 3-wire PT100 Ohm RTD output is used for temperature monitoring and control of water in basin

The Heater current charts may assist in selecting the proper contactor arrangement. If you are unsure of the correct sizing, we can assist in the selection.

Note on incoming power wiring:

Calculate the amperage as follows:The main incoming power wire requirements are sized based on the total heater nameplate kW and voltage. Calculate the actual load on the heater contactor control panel (the total kW of all the heaters connected to it) or use the nameplate rating in determining the wire size required.

Single Phase Amperage = Total kW x 1000

                                                  Voltage

 

Three Phase Amperage = Total kW x 1000    

                                           Voltage x 1.732

 

The field supplied branch circuit disconnect switch and the branch circuit protective devices (fusing or circuit breaker) should be sized to carry at least 100% of the current calculated above.

 

When calculating a properly sized control panel, we assume there is going to be a maximum of (2) Heaters wired to a single contactor. Our prices are based on this assumption. There is (1) selector switch and (1) pilot light per contactor.

We can modify our standard control panels for you. Let us know your requirements.
