Support Software:
WATVIEW is Watlow's Human Machine Interface (HMI) software designed to set up and monitor one or more Watlow® F4 controllers. With easy controller setup, a recipe and alarm manager, data-logging and trend plot graphing capabilities, animated custom overview screens and a superior online help system, you can be assured that WATVIEW HMI software is the ideal software for your application.
COMPOSER® with INTUITION® is Watlow’s new software for configuring controllers. It is used to configure the F4T for your choice of flex modules, to set up functions such as control loops, profiles and alarms and link them to the inputs and outputs you want them to use and to create and edit profiles.
3rd Party drivers/Protocols:
LabVIEW
LabVIEW & SCPI Protocol


 



Watlow's F4 family of controls includes the original time tested F4 control and the new F4T. The SERIES F4 1/4 DIN industrial ramping controller meets the requirements of the most demanding ramp and soak processing applications. Easy to setup and operate, its programming features and proven performance capabilities are ideally suited for environmental chamber or furnace and oven applications. Single and dual channel versions are available. The F4T with INTUITION™ temperature process controller from Watlow® offers a wide range of field removable I/O modules for maximum design flexibility. Configurations can be custom tailored to meet the scaling needs of a tremendous range of equipment and applications while providing exactly the hardware types required for compatibility. The F4T controller also features a 4.3 inch, color, graphical touch panel. Combining power, flexibility and functionality, this new controller offers unmatched versatility, and its best-in-class ease-of-use could very well make user manuals a thing of the past.
