Details of the Eurotherm Series 2000 Obsolescence and the EPC3000 Replacement

Over the last 25 years, the 2200 and 2400 controllers have been two of Eurotherm's longest-running and best-selling control offerings. They have proven themselves to be highly versatile and reliable for all sorts of applications. However, many have changed since the '90s, including significant advances in microelectronics technology. Eurotherm incorporated these advances into new and improved offerings. 

That's why Eurotherm decided to make the 2200 and 2400 series controllers obsolete, effective January 31st, 2021, with repair and servicing for these ranges available until 2025. 

As a replacement for these ranges, Eurotherm recommends the EPC3000 series of programmable controllers. They offer the same functionality you've come to expect, along with additional improvements to help meet the needs of today. They also feature very similar wiring to both the 2200 and 2400 series controllers. They are available in the exact three DIN sizes. 

Installing the controller into existing panels is friendly and straightforward. Plus, the EPC3000 series has been designed with cybersecurity in mind and certified to meet the stringent requirements of Achilles Communications Robustness Testing Level 1. You'll also benefit from enhanced precision control, exceptional thermal stability, and noise rejection. It's also more user-friendly, featuring a graphical wiring environment to help create applications. Users can select the function blocks they wish to use in their application and then connect them using 'soft wiring .' There is a pictorial view of the configuration. Ethernet communications are supported via a standard RJ45 connector, providing fast access to the process, and diagnostic information as Eurothermll as connectivity to an external PLC or a plant SCADA. 

The EPC3000 programmable controller offers exceptional value and packs many features typically only available in high-end control offerings. Whatever your process, the EPC3000 range can help you achieve the required stability, accuracy, and repeatability.
