Things You Should Know About Temperature Controllers

A thermoregulator is a device used to control a heater or other equipment by comparing a sensor signal with a set point and performing calculations according to the deviation between those values. The difference between these numbers is what generates heat for your space, which is then distributed using ductwork throughout your home. It includes the single zone controller.

Types Of A Temperature Controller

On And Off Controller

The most basic type of temperature controller is an on-off controller. It has two states: on and off, with no intermediate state. The product from the device changes when the temperature crosses a certain point.

This type of controller is great if you want to heat your room, but not use it all the time. It’s like the “on” button on your phone—when you turn it on, it stays on. When you turn it off again, it goes back to being off.

Proportional Controller

The Proportional controller is the most common type of control in the heaters. In a typical proportional temperature controller, the controller changes its output voltage in response to a change in temperature. Proportional control is considered a primary type of control because it doesn’t require additional equipment or sensors; it is often used with thermocouples, thermistors, and RTDs to measure temperature.

PID Controllers

A PID controller is a type of temperature controller that regulates the temperature by controlling the flow of heated or cooled air through the building. It’s also known as proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller. A single zone controller is considered a PID controller.
