There are many different types of Indramat control. Those controls can be broken down into three basic categories:
- Indramat CLC Controls
- Indramat CLM Controls
- Indramat PPC Controls
The CLC and CLM control categories contain more specific control types. It’s important to know which type of Indramat control you’re using. Not only is it generally a good idea to understand the machinery that you’re working with, but if something ever goes wrong, and your control malfunctions, you need to be able to communicate which type of control you’re using.
Here’s a list of Indramat controls:
- CLC Controls
- CLM Controls
- CLM 1.2
- CLM 1.3
- CLM 1.4
- PPC Controls
So now you’ve got a list of different control types, but that doesn’t really do you any good if you don’t know which control you have in the first place. Here are some things that can help you identify which Indramat control you are using.
CLC controls look like circuit boards. The CLC-D is distinguishable from the rest by the battery that it uses.
CLM controls yypically have “CLM” stamped right on the front, and they are easy to identify by the big old keypad.
PPC controls are most identifiable by the fact that they are freestanding.
If all else fails, you can always identify your control by matching it to a picture. We have images for all of the different Indramat control types on our website. Determining which type of control you have is as simple as playing the matching game.
