Located in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, USA, Athena Controls, Inc. designs and manufactures digital and analog temperature control instrumentation for applications in the process industries worldwide, ranging from plastics and packaging to food and pharmaceuticals.
Athena offers temperature control solutions in three major areas of the control loop: panel and sub-panel controllers, SCR power handlers and solid-state relays, and temperature sensors. Power Controls, and Sensors.
The Athena 4000 is a 1/4 DIN panel mounted, short metal case enclosed controller that can be used for accurate proportional temperature control of most processes.
The controller accepts thermocouple or RTD input, and offers a choice of standard single outputs for energizing most common output devices. A single, digital filtered LED display provides visual indication of various controller functions.
(delabs Notes – The reason i have put this analog controller is, that this model is a classic that may have served the industry for more than 30 Years. This is also important for academic and lab study. Still the simplest real-time control for a industrial heating system. An Usability, Serviceability and Engineering example for control engineers to understand.)

Model 1056 is a Multi Parameter Instrument, single or dual input. It has pH/ORP/ISL, Resistivity/Conductivity, % Concentration, Chlorine, Oxygen, Ozone, Temperature, and many more. A large easy-to-read process measurement display.
This multiparameter instrument offers a wide range of measurement choices supporting most industrial, commercial, and municipal applications. The modular design allows signal input boards to be field replaced making configuration changes easy.
HART and Profibus DP digital communications are available..
The Model 1056 accepts single or dual sensor input.
Inputs are isolated from other signal sources and earth ground.
Two 4-20 mA or 0-20 mA current outputs are electrically isolated.
The Martel 3001 multi-function precision bench calibrator provides the power and features of calibrators costing thousands more. It combines the simulation and measurement of voltage, current, thermocouple, RTD and pressure with a second completely isolated measurement channel for an instrument unmatched in versatility, performance, and value.
The 3001 provides simple, front-panel entry of mode, range, and value, using either direct key-board entry or cursor entry. Using cursor entry , the LEFT/RIGHT arrow keys are used to move the cursor under the digit in the display to be changed.

“Mass Flow is the quantity of direct interest whenever the molecules of the gas are the control variable in your process – such as combustion, chemical reactions, ventilation, product drying and a variety of other process applications.”
Smart-Trak – Product site focusing on Sierra’s Smart-Trak Digital Mass Flow Meters and Controllers.
“SmartTrak 100 features Dial-A-Gas® technology for true digital performance in up to ten pre-programmed gases with the same unit (gas type list can be programmed on request). Another unique factor of the Model 100 is the pilot module which replaces expensive control/readout electronics and is available mounted to the face of the instrument or in a convenient hand-held version.”
