Mini8® Loop Controller

Mini8® Loop Controller

The Mini8 Controller offers high performance control usually only found in Eurotherm panel mount PID controllers.
It is also a very competitive and compact data acquisition device.

Its modular design enables its I/O and feature set to be selected to cater for a wide range of applications from simple to complex.

Now with:

  • More processing power, more function blocks, and faster communications
  • More loops can be handled in a single box, with improved input accuracy
  • Enhanced Thermocouple input board (ET8) with +/-0.25°C CJC accuracy

Re-engineered around IIoT and cybersecurity best practices to support “defence in depth” strategies


The Mini8 controller is the ideal partner to a programmable logic controller (PLC).  Able to multi-drop on either serial, fieldbus or Ethernet communications, it offer s a real, cost-effective alternative to performing analog measurement or loop control in a PLC.

Implementing these functions in the Mini8 controller reduces the hardware cost of the PLC, relieving it of the burden of performing analog functions – often allowing a lower specification processor to be used.

The feature set of the Mini8 controller includes high performance PID control, graphical wiring and setpoint programming functions together with math, logic and timing function blocks.

When used in a data acquisition installation the high density analog I/O can be combined with 6000 Series paperless graphic recorder products to provide unsurpassed local and network access to your process.
