The COMMANDER 501 is a versatile single-loop controller with advanced control features built-in as standard, e.g. gain scheduling, process optimization, alarm logic, maths and linearizers.

The instrument can be commissioned using a built-in library of application templates and advanced autotune facilities. Configurations can also be edited and stored off-line using ABB's Windows-based PC Configurator.

A wide range of process connections is included in the standard instrument; a choice of option cards provides additional input/output for complex applications. MODBUS serial communications are available for integration with factory automation systems.

IP66 (NEMA4X) front panel protection makes the COMMANDR 501 an extremely robust controller, suitable for use in a wide variety of industrial environments.
