Watlow introduces its new RMA PLUS, an enhanced version of the legacy EZ-ZONE RM remote access module. The RMA PLUS communicates quickly and efficiently and features an integrated USB connection that provides easy connection from a PC without the hassle of a converter.
The RMA PLUS offers plug and play access to the powerful EZ-ZONE RM family of controllers and integrates easily into existing systems. It comes standard with a built-in Ethernet switch eliminating the need to provide an additional switch for small systems. The RMA PLUS also offers port mirroring for troubleshooting and protects from broadcast and multicast storms. The integrated USB connection ensures real-time communication from software packages and the Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU capabilities allow users to connect to third-party and legacy devices.
The RMA PLUS is capable of data logging as well and users can log up to 16 gigabytes of data standard or upgrade to a user supplied 32 gigabyte SD card. Note, 32GB is the maximum size SD card allowed by design. Configuration and data logs are available as Windows files so they can be easily accessed.
“Historically, EZ-ZONE RMA users have had to spend more time than desired to connect their entire system,” said Jim Hentges, product manager. “Now, the RMA PLUS offers state-of-the-art connectivity and real-time communication. Discovery and transfer speeds have gone from minutes with the legacy EZ-ZONE RMA to just seconds with the RMA PLUS. Because the RMA PLUS is an essential component of the EZ-ZONE RM family, users receive all the benefits and support of working with Watlow.”
