Watlow®, an industry leader in the design and manufacture of complete thermal systems, introduced its LEGACY SERIES panel-mount temperature controllers. These industry-leading PID controllers offer simple control without complex features making these controllers ideally suited for basic applications and usage levels.
Standard bus communications are available on LEGACY SERIES controllers allowing for easy product configuration via PC communications protocol and free software. This saves time, simplifies programming and improves reliability of controller setup.
LEGACY SERIES controllers offer many additional benefits as well including PID auto-tune for fast and efficient startup, a touch-safe package for increased operator safety, 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 operation of user-defined, repetitive activities.
Additionally, LEGACY SERIES controllers work with Watlow’s EZ-LINK™ mobile application that connects quickly and easily via Bluetooth® wireless communications for easy controller setup and monitoring.
“Many times, our customers require a simple controller rather than one of our more powerful and complex controllers, and we want to make sure we provide what is truly required rather than trying to up sell to a controller with features that are not needed,” said Andy Borkowski, product manager. “Watlow is proud to offer the LEGACY SERIES as a practical and economical option for basic applications in a variety of industries.”
The LEGACY SERIES is available in a 1/16 DIN panel mount package and will be followed soon by a 1/32 DIN. They can be ordered as PID process controllers or as dedicated over and under-temperature limit controllers. For more information, click here.
