Partlow Tech Support?

Are Partlow still in business? I looked up a phone number online to ask about a tech support question and any website that seemed to have Partlow in the URL turned out to be a separate retailer. I have a question about one of my older controllers I run my electric garage with. PS, before you spend any extra time typing, I do run Watlows and Digitrys also and I agree they are more user friendly.. Thanks in advance.

Charlie Correll has had a love affair with Partlows for a long time and I would think he would know.
If you want classy controllers, get an old "West" or a Honeywell with the big moving arrow indicator and it goes "Clunk" a lot. I had one of those that took a roll of paper and recorded the temps. It too went "Clunk" and it took a sharpie. The whole joint had the air of Frankenstein's lab. I did not bring them from Santa Fe sadly.

Thanks, Charlie's on to Watlows now but I'll give him a call and ask.

I am familiar with Paltrow. What is your question?

josh, do you have an extra digirty GB1? you can send it to digitry and they can convert it to proportionating output and you will have the easiest controller ever... not sure why people don't do this.

There'd be a lot to type to explain all of it, but I can try to be brief: I just use as a set point controller on my electric garage. Recently, it seems to be reverting back to a former set point I had it on, 1075F, after it ramps up and meets a new, different set point I happen to put in. I saw it occur today, and it was like it power-cycled on it's own, clearing out the lcd display for a couple seconds (you know, looks like all "8"s. Then 1075 came up for the green number. It's not a big issue, but at some point soon it could be, say if I heat up that new Gaffer super Duro black to 1250 as it likes, but when I take it out of there and it's only 1075F and cracks. Thanks in advance Charles

I have three but I'd love to have another at some point. Digitry stuff is the most intuitive to use I think. But to save some money and the amount of space the actual controller takes up, I went with small Partlows for two of my ovens when I built them.

Which model? Some programs require a "save set point" button. How is your thermocouple? Have the connections been checked lately?

If it's doing weird stuff on you just throw it in the garbage and get a SOLO controller from Automation Direct. Probably some corroded connections on the board. Ain't nobody got time for that.
