Watlow software products provide an interface for users to controllers and other instrumentation and automation equipment that is more powerful and flexible than built-in product interfaces and yet fast to set up and easy to use. Because the software is designed to communicate with Watlow and other products, it saves time and eliminates the need to learn communications protocols. Configuration software simplifies the process of setting up controllers, allows users to quickly and easily copy settings from one controller to another and save controller configuration files that can be archived or emailed to other users. Configuration software is offered for download free of charge. Human machine interface (HMI) software is easy-to-use and ideal for data logging, trending, managing recipes, monitoring alarms and creating customized user interfaces for machines and systems with Watlow controllers.
