Watlow controllers now RoHS-compliant
RoHS bans restrict the use of several substances including lead, mercury, cadmium, hexa-valent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls and polybrominated diphenyl ethers. While RoHS was developed for the European Union, similar requirements are being developed in other countries; therefore Watlow is proactively addressing these compliance issues across the board.

Watlows on-off temperature and limit microprocessor-based controllers are available in a broad range of packaging options including panel-mount, DIN-rail-mount, open- board and open-board potted, allowing users to select the best version for their individual application. The controllers can be ordered with either fixed or adjustable setpoint, heat or cool on-off temperature control and with high or low limit trip action. The on-off temperature and limit controller designs provide significant improvements in the performance, repeatability and accuracy offered by analog on-off and limit controllers. The upgrade to RoHS compliance does not change customer model number ordering options, agency listings, price or warranty.
