SERIES EHG SL10 Integrated Multi-Function Controller

Configure ProductRequest Information
The SERIES EHG® SL10 integrated, multi-function controller is a key component to a powerful system that integrates a heater, an adjustable set point temperature controller, a high/low temperature alert, a power switching device and a high temperature safety limit. Its agency recognized controller/safety limit meets UL® 1998 and CE 60730 requirements.

An optional display/communications module can be easily added in the field to provide a digital display indication, an adjustment of set point, RS485 Modbus® communications and other Human Machine Interface (HMI) features. As a scalable system, only what is needed can be purchased.

The EHG SL10 controllers’ easy to install, compact design, inherent reliability and integrated limit functions offer unmatched value. It is designed for easy integration with Watlow heaters to simplify engineering, reduce component count for new equipment and decrease ownership cost. For original equipment manufacturers, (OEMs), CE, Semi-S2 compliance and UL® recognition, the EHG controller reduces time and costs associated with global agency testing and validation.
