FDC-Set and FDC-Set-Pro

DIN Control Configuration Software and Hardware


Future Design Controls 100/C, 300, B41, B42, L, P and C-Series Loop controls incorporate a programming port as standard.

FDC-Set v2.0 supports MCT4 PCM & HLM Modules

  When connected to a PC running FD-Set software [FREE] device configurations can be downloaded quickly & accurately




FDC-Set is applicable to FDC 300, 100, B, L, P and C-Series and with v2.0 MCT4 Controls.


Connect the PC to the control through the cable & power supply/converter described below.


When configuring the instruments except for the MCT4, the controls are powered by the SN12A converter through the cable connection; the controls do not have to be powered via the power input terminals. The MCT4 must be powered with connection to FDC-Set through modbus serial connection.


Open a default configuration for the appropriate control series in degrees C or F, change configuration to your requirements and download to the control. Or, once a control is configured through the its' front display/keypad upload its' configuration via FDC-Set. Included in the configuration are setpoint, alarm setpoint, PID settings, etc.


Saving your configuration is easy following traditional Windows commands. Files "saved as" can be opened and downloaded to the controls.
