WE DO ...ROBOTS
Collaborative Robots

SAFE Integrated Robotic Control with Safety Monitoring


  • Versatility. The robot helps create an intelligent manufacturing environment in any industry, including automotive, aerospace, semiconductor, machine tool production and secondary packaging.
  • Intuitive design. Thanks to a revolutionary user interface with an all-graphic flow chart, programming is fast and simple. No coding is necessary – and the system even includes a complete pick-and-place application that can be taught in five minutes.
  • Built-in vision. The integrated, intelligent vision system performs pattern recognition, object positioning, barcode identification and more.
  • Mobility. Manufacturers can easily relocate and recommission the robot for any new task.
  • Safety. The Collaborative Robot complies with the human-robot cooperation safety requirements specified in ISO 10218-1 and ISO/TS 15066.

WE DO ... SENSORS

WE DO ... HEAT & CONTROLS

WATLOW’S EZ-LINK™ MOBILE APP MAKES SETTING UP, MONITORING AND ADJUSTING EZ-ZONE® PM CONTROLLERS EASY AND PAINLESS


Watlow®, an industry leader in the design and manufacture of complete thermal systems recently launched its EZ-LINK™ mobile app and added an option for Bluetooth® wireless technology to 1/16 DIN EZ-ZONE® PM products. Used together this makes setting up, monitoring and adjusting 1/16 DIN EZ-ZONE PM controllers and limits easy and painless.

EZ-LINK is available free-of-charge from the Apple and Android app stores for phones and tablets, and provides access to the controller’s parameters with fully spelled out names in plain text with help topics that explain each parameter and option.

The app provides wireless access to Watlow’s EZ-ZONE PM controllers from up to 70 feet (21.3 meters) away. When connected to a controller, the app’s dashboard view displays up to 20 parameters. Users can configure which parameters appear on the dashboard view with the controller’s custom home page. The all parameters feature in the app lets users set up the controller’s inputs, control settings, alarms, outputs and other features and functions.

In addition to controller setup, monitoring and adjusting, the EZ-LINK mobile app offers a ping feature, which identifies which controller is connected when several controllers are within range. It also honors the controller’s password protection limiting unauthorized access and unwanted changes. The app also provides other benefits including alarm and error indicators, connection to Watlow for feedback and support and accessing device information such as firmware version, part number and serial number.
