Control Units


Energy Efficient
The PE Series of DC Rectifiers by Plating Electronic are controlled by their own designed digital programmable control unit pe280. This control unit offers both Manual control and (optional) Automatic control of your pe rectifier / DC power supply. The better the pe rectifier and the pe control unit harmonised together, the better the performance of the entire system. This is why plating electronic perfectly matches the pe control unit to the pe rectifier. This ensures optimal control of the rectifier and ensures through individual settings the complete control of your processes. You can individually match the pe control unit to your process through numerous optional functions.
