Original Press Release:
Economical Temperature and Limit Controllers Designed for Simple On-Off Control Applications
St. Louis - Watlow recently introduced a new line of microprocessor-based temperature and limit controllers for use in applications requiring basic on-off control. The controllers are available in a broad range of packaging options, with or without an operator interface, and can be ordered in square 1/8th DIN panel mount, DIN rail mount or open board design configurations.
The new line's microprocessor design platform offers significant performance, repeatability and accuracy improvements over Watlow's current line of analog basic temperature and limit controllers.
Variable options include the SERIES CV (controller) and SERIES LV (limit), which feature an operator interface for viewing and selecting set points. Set point selection is made with a continuous turn rotary encoder, and is displayed on a red, four-character, seven segment LED screen. Customers define operating range temperature values through product configuration part numbers.
The fixed options are the SERIES CF (controller) and SERIES LF (limit), which offer fixed set points supplied without an operator interface. Customers define operating set point temperatures through product configuration part numbers. Watlow's SERIES TM-temperature indicator is available as an additional order option.
Watlow's new line of temperature controllers are UL® and C-UL® listed, CE approved and have applied for CSA approval. The limit controllers carry special UL® approval for the open board potted versions and FM approval. Both are backed by a Watlow three-year warranty.
Since the company's founding in 1922, Watlow has brought its thermal expertise to numerous applications, including semiconductor, plastics processing, foodservice equipment, life sciences, power generation, aerospace and others. Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, Watlow is the largest custom designer and manufacturer of industrial heaters, sensors, controllers and software with offices and manufacturing facilities around the world.
