Watlow®, an industry leader in the design and manufacture of complete thermal systems, recently introduced its new 1/32 DIN PM LEGACY™ controllers, which are the first 1/32 DIN controllers on the market to incorporate Bluetooth® wireless technology. Bluetooth® is used to enable EZ-LINK™, Watlow’s mobile app for setting up, monitoring and adjusting PM PLUS™ and PM LEGACY controllers.
Watlow’s PM LEGACY SERIES panel-mount controllers are industry-leading PID controllers that offer optimal performance utilizing simple control and menu functionality without complex features. They are ideally suited for basic applications and usage levels.
PM LEGACY controllers include one universal input and an option for up to two outputs. These controllers can be ordered as PID process controllers or as dedicated over and under-temperature limit controllers. The LEGACY SERIES controllers feature a SMOOTH-TOUCH™ keypad eliminating contamination points on the front of the controller and creating a better seal on the front panel as well as a function key for simple, one-touch operating of user-defined, repetitive activities. PM LEGACY controllers are backward compatible with EZ-ZONE® PM controllers.
“There was a need in the market for a simple controller for basic applications, so we developed the LEGACY SERIES to fulfill that void,” said Andy Borkowski, product manager. “Our customers don’t always want the most powerful, high-end controller. Some applications require basic control and this product line is made for those situations. Earlier this year we introduced the 1/16 DIN and now we can offer the 1/32 DIN as well, which is the first of this size in the industry to incorporate Bluetooth® technology.”
