mechanical relays when mechanical relays are used in the
actuators connected to the output terminals.

voltage output
(for driving SSR)
Output Signal Range
Setting
This function sets the output signal range of the linear current
output. You can specify 4 to 20 mA or 0 to 20 mA.
Models with
linear current
output
Limiting Simultaneous
Outputs
This function limits the number of outputs that turn ON
simultaneously by shifting the control period of each output
and restricting the upper limit of the manipulated variable. You
can set a delay between outputs, which allows delays in
output device operation that can occur when outputs are
switched.

Sensor Disconnection
Detection
This function detects disconnections in temperature sensors.
It also detects that the measured value of the temperature
sensor is outside the input indication range.
All models
Heater Burnout
Detection
This function detects heater burnouts. A heater burnout is
detected if the control output is ON and the heater current is
equal to or less than the heater burnout detection current.
Models with CT
input
SSR Failure Detection This function detects SSR failures. An SSR failure is detected
if the control output is OFF and the leakage current is equal to
or greater than the SSR failure detection current. An SSR
failure is a failure that is caused by an SSR short-circuit.
Models with CT
input
Temperature alarms *1 Function for detecting a deviation or an error in the measured
value as an alarm. Alarm operation corresponding to the use
can be performed by selecting “Alarm type”.
All models
LBA
(Loop Burnout Alarm)
*1
Function for detecting, as an alarm, the error location in the
control loop when there is no change in the measured value
while a control deviation equal to or more than the threshold
value exists between the set point and the measured value.
All models

*1. For the setting ranges and indication ranges of the sensors, refer to the Input types.
*2. For details, refer to the Reference Accuracy and Temperature Coefficient Table.
      For thermocouple inputs, reference accuracy and cold junction compensation error are guaranteed for a set of a
      Temperature Control Unit and a terminal block on which a cold junction sensor is mounted.
     Be sure to use the terminal block and the Temperature Control Unit with the same calibration control number
     together.
     A calibration control number is displayed both on the terminal block and the Unit.
     Make sure to return the terminal block to which a cold junction sensor is mounted and the Unit together.
*3. To use an allowable load resistance greater than 350 Ω but not exceeding 600 Ω, SHT1 and SHT2 must be shorted
      with a shorting cable.
     For details, refer to the NX-series Temperature Control Units User’s Manual (Cat. No. W523).

*1. The decimal point position of the various input types is "no decimal point" or "decimal point 1 digit". When calculating
      measured value error, round up calculation results in accordance with the decimal point position of the temperature
      range.
*2. The overall accuracy of the Temperature Control Unit is guaranteed for a set consisting of a cold junction sensor that
      is mounted on the terminal block and a Temperature Control Unit. Be sure to use the terminal block and Temperature
      Control Unit with the same calibration control number together. For the 24mm width model, also be sure the left and
      right terminal blocks are correctly attached.

*3. An error for a measured value when the ambient temperature changes by 1°C.
     The following formula is used to calculate the error of the measured value for thermocouple inputs..
     Overall accuracy = Reference accuracy + Temperature characteristic x Change in the ambient temperature + Cold
     junction compensation error For resistance thermometer inputs, there is no cold junction compensation error.
     (Calculation example)

Conditions

Item Description
Ambient temperature 30°C
Measured value 100°C
Thermocouple K: -200 to 1300°C

The characteristic values are formulated from the datasheet or reference accuracy and temperature coefficient table under the above conditions

Item Description
Reference accuracy -100 to 400°C: ±1.5°C
Temperature coefficient -100 to 400°C: ±0.30°C/°C
Change in the ambient temperature 25°C -> 30°C 5 deg
Cold junction compensation error ±1.2°C

Therefore,
Overall accuracy = Reference accuracy + Temperature characteristic x Change in the ambient temperature +
Cold junction compensation error
        = ±1.5°C +(±0.30°C/°C) x 5 deg + ±1.2°C
        = ±4.2°C
-200 to 1300°C without decimal point. the calculation result is round up after the decimal point.
Then the overall accuracy is ±5°C.

*4. The ppm value is for the full scale of the temperature range.

Cold Junction Compensation Error Specifications for Units That Take a Thermocouple Input Type

This section describes the cold junction compensation errors for thermocouple inputs, which differ by installation orientation of this Unit, type of adjacent Units, and current consumed by the adjacent Units.

When the Adjacent Units are Temperature Control Units

This section describes the cold junction compensation errors when the adjacent Units are Temperature Control Units. The error differs by installation orientation.

(a) For upright installation

The cold junction compensation error is ±1.2°C.
However, there are exceptions depending on the input type and temperature. Those conditions and the cold junction compensation error are as in the table below.

Input type and temperature range Cold junction compensation error
T below -90°C ±3.0°C
J, E, K and N below -100°C
U, L and PLII
R and S below 200°C
B below 400°C Not guaranteed
C/W ±3.0°C

(b) For other than upright installation

The cold junction compensation error is ±4.0°C.
However, there are exceptions depending on the input type and temperature. Those conditions and the cold junction compensation error are as in the table below.

Input type and temperature range Cold junction compensation error
T below -90°C ±7.0°C
J, E, K and N below -100°C
U, L and PLII
R and S below 200°C
B below 400°C Not guaranteed
C/W ±9.0°C

When the Adjacent Units are not Temperature Control Units

This section describes the cold junction compensation errors when the adjacent Units are not Temperature Control Units. The error differs by the installation orientation and power consumption by the adjacent Units.

(a) For upright installation, when the power consumption is 1.5 W or less for both the left and right adjacent Units

The cold junction compensation error is ±1.2°C.
However, there are exceptions depending on the input type and temperature. Those conditions and the cold junction compensation error are as in the table below.

Input type and temperature range Cold junction compensation error
T below -90°C ±3.0°C
J, E, K and N below -100°C
U, L and PLII
R and S below 200°C
B below 400°C Not guaranteed
C/W ±3.0°C

(b) When the power consumption of either the left or the right adjacent Unit is more than 1.5 W but less than 3.9 W.
     Or for any installation other than upright, when the power consumption of both the left and right adjacent Units is
     less than 3.9 W

The cold junction compensation error is ±4.0°C.
However, there are exceptions depending on the input type and temperature. Those conditions and the cold junction compensation error are as in the table below.

Input type and temperature range Cold junction compensation error
T below -90°C ±7.0°C
J, E, K and N below -100°C
U, L and PLII
R and S below 200°C
B below 400°C Not guaranteed
C/W ±9.0°C

(c) When the power consumption exceeds 3.9 W for either the left or right adjacent Unit

Do not use the above condition (c) because the cold junction compensation error is not guaranteed in this condition.

(d) The power consumption of adjacent Units

The power consumption of adjacent Units is the total of the following values.
• The power consumption of the NX Unit power supply and I/O power supply for the NX Units adjacent to the Temperature Input Unit. If the adjacent Unit is an Input Unit, it is the total power consumption according to the input current.
