Overview

MOD-LH Series

ProVu Meter Shown in a PDA2301 Enclosure with MOD-LHRB1 Red Light / Horn and Reset Button. Meter & Enclosure Sold Separately. Assembly Required.

Precision Digital offers a wide variety of NEMA 4 and NEMA 4X enclosures that can be equipped with MOD-LH Light / Horn and Reset Button. The MOD-LH Series is available in three different light configurations. The first option is a factory ordered Light / Horn with a color of either red, green, yellow, blue, or white. The second option is a Light / Horn the user determines the light color (red, green, yellow, blue or white) by connecting the appropriate wire. The third option is a Light / Horn with red, yellow, and green layers the user can turn on independently.

The MOD-LH can be powered from the ProVu’s 200 mA transmitter power supply with enough power left over to drive most transmitters.

The light(s) and horn can be controlled independently of each other by up to eight separate relays on the ProVu meter. These relays can be programmed for automatic or manual reset action to satisfy a wide variety of audible and visual alarm applications. The light can be programmed to flash (not available on MOD-LH5CB1) or stay steady-on.

When MOD-LH is ordered, the accompanying enclosure on the order comes with the holes pre-drilled for the Light / Horn and the Reset Button and the user performs the mounting and wiring. Meter and enclosure are sold separately. The Light / Horn and the Reset Button can also be ordered as separate items and the user performs all hole-drilling, mounting and wiring as desired.

Note: The Light / Horn accessory is powered from the 200 mA transmitter power supply, so when this is installed, the meter’s transmitter power is downgraded from 200 mA. See Transmitter Power Supply specification for details.

Applications

There are a wide variety of ways these Light / Horn devices can be controlled by the ProVu’s two, four or eight relays to satisfy visual and audible alarm applications. Please feel free to contact tech support to discuss your particular application. The following examples illustrate some typical applications.

MOD-LH Models

MOD-LH Wiring

The MOD-LH models are the simplest devices in the Series and are made up of a single-color light and horn. A typical way to use the MOD-LH is to program the ProVu so the horn can be silenced at any time via the Reset Button or F3 front panel button on the ProVu, and light to reset automatically when the alarm clears:

RelayConnected toDefault Reset
1Flashing Light(1)Auto reset
2HornSilence with Reset Button
3User DeviceAs user desires
4User DeviceAs user desires
1 Light can be wired to flash or stay steady on.

MOD-LH5CB1

MOD-LH5CB1 Wiring

The MOD-LH5CB1 shows one color at a time and the light color (red, green, yellow, blue or white) is determined by which wires are connected to power through the ProVu’s relays. A typical application for the MOD-LH5CB1 might involve lighting up the red light to indicate high and low alarms and the green light to indicate everything is OK using the ProVu’s four internal relays:

RelayPurposeRangeLight/HornAction
1Low alarm< 199Red lightAuto
3Low alarm< 199HornLatch
2All OK200 to 500Green lightAuto
2High alarm> 500Red lightAuto
4High alarm> 500HornLatch

MOD-LH3LCB1-RYG

MOD-LH3LCB1-RYG Wiring

The MOD-LH3LCB1-RYG can light up red, yellow or green bands as determined by which wires are connected to power through the ProVu’s relays. A typical application for the MOD-LH3LCB1-RYG (and the default factory setting) might involve lighting up the green light to indicate everything is OK, the yellow light to indicate a High warning, and the red light to indicate a High alarm. The Horn will also sound at both the Warning and High alarms and can be manually reset at any time with the front panel reset button:

RelayPurposeRangeLight/HornAction
1All OK< 199Green lightAuto
2Warning200 to 500Yellow lightAuto
3Warning200 to 500HornLatch
2High alarm> 500Red lightAuto
4High alarm> 500HornLatch

MOD-LH Models

Connections shown for a red light model. For other MOD-LH models, the red wire is the color of the light. Connect the red and black wires for a Steady On light and red and gray wires for Flashing light.

MOD-LH5CB1 Connections

MOD-LH5CB1

Connect the LED color to the plus supply and the black wire to the minus supply to turn the LED on. Be aware of limitations for applications requiring different color lights for different alarm conditions.

MOD-LH3LCB1-RYG Connections

MOD-LH3LCB1-RYG

Connect the LED color to the plus supply for a Steady On light and LED color and gray wires to the plus supply for Flashing light. The black wire should be connected to the minus supply.
