The EZ-Zone EZK, a remote user interface (RUI) that can also be used as a communication gateway, is now available with an option for Class 1, Division 2, temperature class T4A, for use in hazardous locations. The EZ-Zone RUI can be utilized as a communications gateway device to save cost, space and wiring when digital communications are being used with two or more EZ-Zone controllers. It can also serve as a display for showing all parameter values for up to 16 EZ-Zone controllers, which helps improve the user-system interface. As a communications gateway, the RUI can deliver multiple communication protocol options. The device’s T4A temperature classification means that its surface temperature will not rise above 248°F (120°C). — Watlow Electric Manufacturing Co., St. Louis, Mo.
