Watlow SELECT™ This item ships in 5 days or less
The Watlow EZ-ZONE® RM High-Density Module controller simplifies thermal system management. The EZ-ZONE RM controller family is comprised of six module types: an integrated on-off or PID control, monitoring and over/under temperature limit 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. Benefits of using an integrated controller solution: -Reduces wiring time and termination complexity compared with connecting multiple discrete products -Improves system reliability -Reduces termination and installation cost -Eliminates compatibility issues often encountered with using various discrete components and brands -Reduces troubleshooting time and downtime costs because the system can specifically identify any problems with a sensor, controller, solid state relay (SSR) power output or heater load -Complete thermal solution saves engineering time and labor costs while shortening project schedules Multiple inputs; from 1 to 152 PID loops of control or monitor up to 256 analog inputs -Mix and match I/O to fit any application; from 1 input with 2 outputs to 152 analog inputs with 152 outputs, or monitor up to as many as 256 analog inputs all in one system -Reduces cost because only required loops are purchased -Allows a common controller platform across many design applications as both loops and outputs can be ordered in single increments Additional Key Functions: -Configuration communication port (standard bus) -Removable modules and connectors -Ring lug and front-screw terminal options -Profile ramp soak with 400 total steps -Retransmit and remote set point input virtually inside controller eliminating costs for input/output hardware -User configuration settings can be stored and recalled -Thermistor input -Elevated operating range of 0 to 149°F (-18 to 65°C) -UL® listed, CSA, CE, RoHS, W.E.E.E.
