Systems integrator Malisko Engineering was contracted to upgrade a furnace control system for Advanced Energy, a manufacturer of industrial power systems and components. This RTC furnace had been operating perfectly since the mid-1990s, but Advanced Energy knew they could realize major improvements in performance and gain other advantages by upgrading the controls to newer Opto 22 hardware and software.

Malisko designed a custom solution that included a standalone controller, with analog output modules to control the speed and intensity of current and voltage powering the furnace, digital output modules to switch that power, and thermocouple modules that accept temperature input from the furnace’s type K thermocouples.
