ATCOM Heat Trace Control Panels

‘ATCOM’ is the brand name for the manufactured panels of Brace’s engineering factory.

The ATCOM panel is an independent control system for heat-trace applications (both freeze-protection and process-maintain). Functionalities include Power Distribution, Sensor Monitoring, Alarming, and Data Delivery. The panel is microprocessor based, controlling up to 48 circuits at 120-480VAC. A weather-proof touchscreen allows users to select between various control methods: Line-Temperature based, Ambient based, or Manual. Up to 4 field RTDs can be assigned to each circuit, providing a thorough overview of the application status.

Alarms are generated for temperature, current, and ground fault leakage. Users can modify setpoints and other circuit data via the touchscreen. Project-specific setpoints are conveniently preassigned to each panel, in true turn-key nature.

A Remote-Access software is also provided, allowing users to access the touchscreen directly from their computer. Communications with the plant DCS is also available for full data delivery.
