Thermon GenesisDuo

Dual-Point Control and Monitoring Module


The Themron Genesis Duo Heating Control and Monitoring Module stands as an industry-leading IIoT-enabled heat trace temperature controller and high-temperature limiter, providing a versatile Dual-Point Control & Monitoring Solution for various industrial applications.

Designed specifically for heat tracing, the Genesis Duo offers precise control and monitoring capabilities for one or two heat tracing circuits, accommodating input from up to two intrinsically safe RTDs per circuit. Notably, the unit can be configured for both control and limitation, featuring dedicated intrinsically safe RTD inputs for the limiter channel, ensuring enhanced safety measures.

Key to the Genesis Duo is its 4.3″ glove touch-capable LCD display, facilitating efficient operation and configuration. The addition of a light ring provides visual indication, enhancing user awareness. Furthermore, the Genesis Duo seamlessly integrates into the Genesis Network, requiring no additional hardware for communication with Thermon’s state-of-the-art supervisory and management platform, emphasizing simplicity and connectivity.

Thermon GenesisDuo Features

Efficient Configuration and Operation: The glove touch-enabled 4.3″ LCD enables operators to quickly program and access readings. When connected to the Genesis Network, configuration and operation can be centrally managed, creating a distributed controls network.

Improved Control Methods: The Duo employs multiple control methods (On/Off, Soft-Start, Proportional) and features the upgraded Ambient Proportional Control (APC and APCM), combining energy-saving principles with the higher current capacity of the mechanical relay.

Upgraded Communications: The Genesis Duo is Genesis Network native, supporting built-in wireless mesh or wired Ethernet connectivity. Optionally, it can be directly connected to any plant DCS system via Modbus RTU, with Modbus TCP available in a future update.

High Temperature Limiter: Configurable as a single channel with a high-temperature limiter, the Duo’s limiter functionality meets the stringent requirements of IEC/EN/UL/CSA 60079-30-1 for controlled design, limiting energy to the heat trace in explosive atmospheres.

The Themron Genesis Duo sets a new standard in control and monitoring for heat tracing applications, integrating advanced technology, safety features, and seamless connectivity to optimize performance in industrial environments.
