Custom Control Platform

Watlow has a unique approach to providing fast and cost-effective design and prototype services for custom controllers in clinical diagnostic and analytical instrumentation applications. Our custom control platforms enhance reliability, reduce agency approval time and protect our customers from the potential pain involved with electronic component obsolescence. The platform is based on a reuse concept where core controller modules, such as power supplies and sensor inputs, are common to most of our standard and custom products. The designs are robust, pre-qualified and have agency approvals. Overall Watlow has the ability to leverage design and manufacturing quantities across a large customer base, which makes Watlow able to manage component obsolescence issues and service the life cycle of your product more effectively.

Watlow's controllers provide a means to network the thermal aspects of your life science process. Watlow can support your conductivity requirements with DeviceNet™ Over Can, EtherNet/IP™, Open Can, Modbus® or RS232.
