Partlow Series 1160+ 1/16 DIN Temperature Controller


The Partlow 1160+ is a new generation of ‘+’ Series controller that takes flexibility and ease of use to new levels. The expanded ‘+’ Series platform of 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 DIN model controllers incorporates numerous product specification, communication, display interface and configuration software improvements that surpass competitive offerings in ease of use, delivery and value per-dollar.

By adding more versatile features and user-friendly functionalities than ever before – like remote setpoint inputs, digital inputs, plug-in output modules, a customizable operator/HMI menu, jumperless and auto-hardware configuration, and 24VDC transmitter power supply – the new generation 1160+ Series controller transforms the complicated into the simple while saving you time (as much as 50% on product set-up), reducing inventory stock and virtually eliminating the likelihood of operator errors.

Making things complicated is easy – the clever trick with the new generation 1160+ Series controller from Partlow is to make it simple.
