1 zone units

Single zone units are controlled by 1 power setpoint signal. They can be used for controlling 1 heating zone in a process or oven system.

Click the button below for going directly to the multizone units.

Benefit of a multizone system, is that it can be controlled with units with functionality for power balancing over the 3 phases, peak-power limiting and harmonics reduction. This saves energy costs and prevents a fine of the energy company when the energy contract is exceeded.
