Watlow EZ
 
Greetings,
My Watlow 981 on my annealehr finally bit the dust. I replaced it with the Watlow EZ. I am learning a bit on programming but it is not sure intuitive. Has anyone programmed an annealing cycle with one of these? Can you walk through the steps involved?
Thanks,
Andy

Send it back for a refund and buy a SOLO control for $90.00 from automation direct. It will be intuitive to program with an easily read guide and phone help.

IF You get the USB Port attachment all you have to do is plug your laptop into it, fill out the graph and it's programmed. Very quick and easy.
You can add a usb port to most of the cheap $!00 one as well.

I did the same about a year ago, I called Watlow and their tech walked me thru doing the programming step by step for 30 minutes plus on the phone.
Worked flawlessly so far.
