Watlow®, an industry leader in the design and manufacture of complete thermal systems, introduces its new PM PLUS™, an enhanced version of the popular EZ-ZONE® PM temperature controller. The PM PLUS is more intuitive than its predecessor and features an improved user interface for easier set up, programming and readability.
The PM PLUS has a new bright, full-color front-panel display with easy-to-read characters and color coding making the display visible from many angles. It also has a smooth-touch keypad, which eliminates the legacy rubber buttons that can wear out from use and harsh environments. The new keypad also eliminates contamination points and creates a better seal on the front of the controller.
The PM PLUS is backward-compatible with legacy EZ-ZONE PM controllers, but offers many user upgrades including an intuitive menu flow allowing the controller to be easily configured. It also continues to offer the industry-leading Bluetooth® connectivity with the EZ-LINK™ mobile app for remote access capability and full descriptions of parameters and error codes.
Like the legacy EZ-ZONE PM, the PM PLUS can be ordered as a PID controller, or an integrated controller with multiple functions combined into one.
“With the PM PLUS, we have reduced the complexity on the front of the controller and have eliminated the dependency on cables and user manuals for configuring the product,” said Andy Borkowski, product manager. “This is important because historically, the panel-mount controllers are not easy to use. These upgrades help improve the overall user experience and we know our current and future customers will be delighted.”
