STEP Up

STEP Up

Imagine a controller that offers simple, flexible climate management and excellent results. With the STEP Up you’ll see improved performance and increased profits. Like traditional staged controls, it’s simple to use, and we’ve added a brighter LCD screen and an upgraded user interface, both designed to improve your experience.

Our organization has benefited from choosing Wadsworth Controls. Their system has worked great, even in our non-traditional greenhouse and I have been able to operate the STEP UP without much trouble, even though my skill set has never been in mechanics or computers. Their service staff have also always been super helpful and friendly!
