Silver Series EM 

The Silver Series EM is a rugged, touchscreen operator interface terminal (OIT). Available in three sizes (4.3, 7 and 10 inch diagonal display sizes), the OIT’s feature serial and Ethernet communications with multiple controllers, e-mail messaging, universal serial bus (USB host), data logging, flexible password security and multiple languages. The small bezel size and two-inch depth make mounting in tight spots easy.

The Silver Series EM programming software, EZwarePlus, is easy to use and features a large variety of built-in screen objects that makes it powerful. When creating screens, the user can call upon extensive graphics libraries, import custom graphics and add numeric displays, entry fields, analog meters, bar graphs and trend graphs with just a few mouse clicks. Screen objects are highly customizable, and the user can create libraries of their own objects for repeat use. The online simulator, Ethernet and USB support make testing and downloading fast. The EZwarePlus screen editor is part of the EZwarePlus software suite and is available as a FREE download on www.watlow.com and on the Control Tools DVD-ROM.

The Silver Series EM OIT paired with Watlow® controllers is the perfect solution for your industrial process or machine control application.
