Pressroom Electronics US Manufacturer of Press Controls


PCS-4000 Overview

Incorporates all the requirements of OSHA for control reliability and component monitoring.  Also includes component and system diagnostics with indicator lights for total press monitoring.  Complies with section 1910.217 of the Federal Register and ANSI Standard B11.1-2001.

When foot actuation is used, a method of guarding the point of operation must be provided.

Standard Safety/Automation Features:

  • Exceeds OSHA 1910.217 & ANSI B11.1-2001
  • Quick and Easy Installation
  • Control Reliable Design (Triple CPU Redundancy)
  • Incorporates dual logic power supplies
  • Heavy duty resolver supplied standard with self-checking input on every press cycle and 30' of resolver cabling supplied standard
  • Complete system diagnostics and programming in plain English/Spanish/French by a four line by twenty character vacuum fluorescent display
  • Can control up to four sets of operator stations
  • Operates at 24VDC, 110VAC, or 240 VAC/440 VAC
  • Major faults such as E-Stop, motion, brake monitor, and sensor faults are handled by two force-guided relays (Form B safety relays)
  • Modes of operation: off--inch--single--continuous
  • Continuous ARM; top stop, anti-tie down and anti-repeat
  • System start/stop functions
  • SPM Range -1 to 500
  • Password and supervisory controlled keyed selector switch for security of data entry
  • Interrupted stroke provision with indicator
  • Inch mode monitoring
  • Crank angle and speed readout (SPM)
  • Time-based brake monitor
  • Built-in motion detector and drift fault
  • 90° and 270° stop time tester/meter built-in
  • Built-in hour meter for maintenance
  • Built-in variable speed compensation
  • Servo-feed interface built-in
  • Six optically isolated die protection inputs that can be either AC or DC (sourcing or sinking)
  • Six limit switch outputs can be set to cycle (non-timed) two times per crank rotation by setting an open/close crank angle (AC or DC @ 3A)
  • The last three limit switch outputs can be set for timed, non-timed, delay, hold, or cycle two times per crank revolution (AC or DC @ 3A)
  • Six PLS (programmable limit switch) output relays are small, high speed, and high capacity (AC or DC @ 3A)
  • Optional Expander Board provides an additional 6 DIE inputs and 6 Programmable Outputs. Requires seperate power supply board
  • 100 job memory (removable)
  • Stroke, batch, quality, and part counters
  • Batch counter output relay
  • Die protection output relay (opens when there is a fault)
  • Speed output relay (opens when press speed falls out of the max/min parameters)
  • Auxiliary output relay (customer assigned usage)
  • Optional tonnage monitoring
  • Optional Ethernet or DeviceNet communication
  • PC Link to allow offline job creation and storage
  • Safety relay controller built-in
  • Optional Tonnage Monitoring
  • Two-year warranty
  • Made in the USA

Also Included:


Dual Solenoid

Dual Solenoid Valve No. 303 

The L-G monitor contains a pressure controlled spool in an assembly mounted between the pilot and valve body assemblies.  Pressure signals are applied to each end of the monitor spool.  If these signals differ by more than a built-in design limit, they cause the spool to shift to a latched position.  The spool movement causes the pilots to be exhausted and pilot supply air to be vented to the atmosphere, thus rendering the valve inoperable.  The monitor must be reset by unlatching the spool before another valve cycle can be initiated. 






Operator Station No. UL-501 

Two UltraTouch modules mounted on a NEMA 12 operator station run bar with a red mushroom emergency stop button located in the center and a yellow mushroom top stop button located off center.  This style assembly is ideal for the metal stamping/metal fabrication industry.  All the modules are mounted in accordance with OSHA, ANSI, 

and CSA standards in regards to run button spacing.


Heavy Duty Pressure Switch

Heavy Duty Pressure Switch No. 306

This NEMA 12 oil-tight and dust-tight switch is adjustable from 1 to 115 PSI. 


Filter Regulator Lubricator

Filter Regulator Lubricator No. 311



Industrial Grade Brushless Resolver Transducer
Part No. 40-003

Heavy duty brushless resolver transducer which replaces the current mechanical rotary cam switch.

Resolver Cabling 30' Part No. 45-020
