Watlow®, an industry leader in the design and manufacture of complete thermal systems, recently announced that its COMPOSER® with INTUITION® graphical configuration software now supports both the F4T and EZ-ZONE® RM controllers.
COMPOSER is Watlow's easy-to-use graphical software for configuring and customizing the company's controllers. It helps users visualize and easily implement control and automation solutions. Task-specific views simplify all aspects of setting up new controllers including managing the inputs and outputs from pluggable flex modules, setting up functions such as control loops and alarms and creating and editing profiles.
COMPOSER offers many features which optimize the user's experience and ultimately help implement application more quickly and with fewer errors using Watlow's F4T and EZ-ZONE RM controllers. Some of these attributes include a function block diagram with live data and error indication, multi-language support, a dashboard view, multi-language support, a configurable interface and integrated video tutorials.
Additional features that specifically support Watlow's F4T include a profile editor for speeding up profile creation and editing, fast and reliable Ethernet support for connecting one or more controllers and a calibration view with on-screen instructions and automation, which reduces downtime by simplifying the calibration verification procedure.
"Since we introduced COMPOSER for the F4T earlier this year, we've gotten consistently positive feedback from our users about the software's advanced features and ease of use," said Sean Wilkinson, product manager. "Based on this feedback and its growing popularity, we are expanding COMPOSER support to additional controllers, which provides users of the EZ-ZONE RM with the benefits that COMPOSER delivers."
"The EZ-ZONE RM is an extremely powerful product that has been applied across a broad range of applications," said Jim Hentges, product manager. "COMPOSER's graphical approach opens up the potential for many more users to reap the benefits of the EZ-ZONE RM in even more applications."
