Watlow Legacy Series panel-mount temperature controllers

Aug. 12, 2020

Watlow introduced its Legacy Series panel-mount temperature controllers. These PID controllers offer simple control without complex features making these them well-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, the company says.

Legacy Series controllers offer additional benefits, including PID auto-tune for fast and efficient startup; a touch-safe package for increased operator safety; a SmoothTouch keypad that eliminates contamination points on the front of the controller and creates a better seal on the front panel; and 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 quickly and easily connects via Bluetooth wireless communications for easy controller setup and monitoring.

The controllers are 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.
