What Is a Ramping Controller?
Output follows a set of user instructions (profile),
to automatically adjust or hold set point for
different time periods.

Ramping or Fixed Set Point Operation
 Ramp
and Soak Programmable Control
 Control
operation automatically follows a set (profile)
of preprogrammed instruction to perform a
processing task.
 Static Set
Point Control
 Operator
intervention is required when processing
changes are needed.
