EZ-ZONE® RM Integrated Controller

Introducing High-Density Modules Integrating Temperature, Process, Limit and Power Control from 1 to 152 Loops

The EZ-ZONE RM controller simplifies thermal system management. The EZ-ZONE RM integrated controller family is comprised of six module types: an integrated on-off or PID control, monitoring and over/under temperature limit controller module, a high-density on-off or PID control module, a high-density limit-only module, an input/output (I/O) expansion module, a high-density monitor/scanner module and a data logging and field communications access module. A system is configured by connecting any combination of module types to address specific application needs. The EZ-ZONE RM is extremely flexible and scalable allowing mixing and matching of I/O to configure 1 to 152 control loops and up to 256 monitor points.

Features & Benefits


Integrated functions lower ownership costs

Advanced PID control algorithm

Wide range of communications capabilities

USB port for data log retrieval

Reduce time and configuration complexity with Auto-Clone


Multiple inputs; from 1 to 152 PID loops of control or monitor up to 256 analog inputs

Allows a common controller platform across many design applications as both loops and outputs can be ordered in single increments

Split-rail control

Minimizes the length and cost of wire runs and improves system reliability by locating inputs closer to sensors and outputs closer to load

Sensor Guard

Prevents unplanned process shutdowns and product loss by switching to a backup sensor if the primary sensor fails
