Watlow EZ Zone PM Control
Watlow’s EZ-ZONE™ PM controller extends the integrated control loop
functions first introduced in the EZ-ZONE ST integrated controller to
the popular 1/32 and 1/16 DIN panel mount package sizes.
Watlow’s EZ-ZONE PM controller offers solutions to reduce system
complexity and lower the cost of control loop ownership. You can
configure the EZ-ZONE PM as a discrete PID controller with adaptive
tuning, as a discrete, agency approved, over/under limit controller, or
as an integrated control loop solution by combining the PID
functionality, over/under limit functionality and high amperage NO-ARC
power switching output in a single panel mount package.
Watlow’s new EZ-ZONE ST integrated thermal loop solid state
controller also offers complete thermal system control in a single
package solution. You get a PID temperature controller already connected
to a high amperage solid state relay with the option of adding a
properly sized heat sink, an over/under temperature limit, a shut-down
power contactor, digital communications and a remote user interface in
one complete and professionally engineered product.
Significant reductions in thermal loop installation costs are
realized when the limit control function and the power switching
function are integrated into a single panel mount package. Having a less
crowded panel, fewer wiring connections, fewer discrete components and
better thermal loop monitoring with error reporting are all benefits to
the user. Watlow’s EZ-ZONE controllers decrease design and assembly
time, require less panel space, minimize system complexity and best of
all, lower the total cost of ownership.
Because these products are modular and scalable, you only pay for
what you need. You can order the EZ-ZONEs in multiple configurations
giving you the flexibility to standardize on the product platform to
solve your wide range of application needs.
EZ-ZONE features include RoHS compliance by design, TRU-TUNE™+
adaptive control and a variety of industrial communication protocols
including EIA 485, EIA 232, EtherNet/IP™ or Modbus® TCP.
