New Process Control Board from LCR Provides Dual Redundant Liquid Level Control


Norristown, Pa. March 2010 – LCR Electronics, a leading manufacturer of EMI filters and electronic products as well as high-end enclosures for military, telecom and commercial applications, now offers a control board that incorporates both a solid state and mechanical relay for dual redundant control of liquid level in process applications. The new EC110 Liquid Level Control board is ideal for hot beverage dispensing machines found in the food service industry, including urns, coffee makers and powder mix dispensers.

The board's dual redundancy provides a critical safety feature that prevents overfill and leakage problems in these applications and offers significantly more reliability than corrosion-prone mechanical fill valves.

The customizable EC110 can sense two different liquid level probes within a machine, such as normal fill and overflow, and control the adequate response to correct any problems. Responses the board can manage include signaling an alarm, shutting off the machine's heat source or controlling the shutoff valve to prevent spills of hot liquid. The liquid level control board also contains helpful diagnostic features such as a power-on LED, fault LED and remote fault indicator.

Because of LCR's expertise in customization, an application-specific EC110 can be developed very cost-effectively. Software can be changed for OEM customers to suit specialized needs, and the new board can easily be combined with other electronic controls from LCR such as a pump motor control or temperature control.

The process control board accepts either 120 VAC or 240 VAC power and is 2.75” x 3.75”. The open board design is intended for easy installation on four mounting points.

Pricing for a standard EC110 process control board starts at $20 per unit in quantities of 1,000. Delivery is typically 13 weeks ARO.
