How do I customize alarms within Commander when used with Watlow F4 Controls.

Watlow Series F4

 

 

Watlow provides a Low and a High Alarm for each Alarm. Commander is setup to annunciate both conditions as standard. You can also edit the Commander Modbus Table to annunciate just the High or the Low alarm condition if desired.

 

From the Main Screen Menus:

Click Setup

Click Edit Modbus Tables

Select the Watlow F4 Table

Enter a value of “Decimal Places” for Alarm 1 Status and/or Alarm2 Status as below:

17 to annunciate both High & Low Alarms
13 to annunciate only High Alarms

14 to annunciate only Low Alarms

Commander has no provisions to signal open thermocouple conditions with this model.
