Why does E5[]N Basic-type Digital Temperature Controllers overshoot or undershoot?


The proportional band is too narrow and the P constant is too small.

The integral time is too short and the I constant is too small.

The derivative time is too long and the D constant is too large.

It is in ON/OFF control mode.

The control cycle is too long for a control system with fast thermal response.

The overlap band setting is mistakenly set for a dead band setting in heating and cooling control.
