Stop sales of Honeywell PID controllers UDC2500 and UDC3200

Honeywell already announced the discontinuation of the UDC2500 and UDC3200 PID controllers in 2021. Now, sales of the controller series will be completely discontinued. An ideal replacement is the UDC2800 PID temperature controller. It is fully compatible, has a user-friendly interface, improved control and much more - to be found in the product portfolio of A. Hock.

Overview of the discontinued universal controllers

In 2004, the UDC2500 and UDC3200 controllers were first released for sale. At that time already with numerous improvements such as NEMA protection on the front, Ethernet communication or infrared communication port.
The universal digital controllers in 96 mm x 96 mm front format also allowed the connection of common probes.

Both PID temperature controllers are now replaced by a stand-alone device - the UDC2800, equipped with numerous state-of-the-art features.


The UDC2800 PID Temperature Controller

Are improved product quality, reduced energy consumption and low costs when updating existing controls important to you? Then the UDC2800 is the best choice for controlling thermal processes.


You will benefit from:

  • easy update and upgrade of UDC2500 and UDC3200 controllers
  • lower operating costs due to fewer parts and thus savings in inventory costs
  • easy monitoring and configuration
