    Need Technical Help: Ambex - Watlow EZ-Zone PM6 - Mac OS

    I just purchased a Ambex and it came with the Watlow EZ-Zone PM6 and the Roaster Dynamics Software. I was curious if anyone knows if the USB-2-485-WE cable that comes with the Ambex roaster would work with Mac OS and where I can get a driver. I would like to use Artisan and its MODBUS support to read the temperatures from the thermocouples.

    Thanks

    Well I was curious as some other roasters use the Watlow EZ-Zone PM6 and I think they have a Mac driver.

    Or i'd be interested at least to use with linux.

    You mention the USB cable? Where does the non-computer end of the cable go?

    That is, does the roaster have a built in serial/USB convertor or an external device like the SerialComm 485?

    There's a ton of Artisan info online (https://artisan-scope.org) where you can probably find others who have had similar setup issues.

    You may have to run "Parallel" or some other utility for Artisan on a MAC???
