The PDA8006 Trident USB serial adapter is the perfect adapter to use with the Trident when the only serial communication required is for MeterView running on a PC. It is the least costly option as well. USB and meter to adapter cables are included.
Accessories & Modifications
- The PDA2360 series of plastic control stations provide a convenient way to remotely control devices such as Precision Digital’s digital meters and controllers. For instance, there is a four-position control station that mimics the ProVu and Helios’s four buttons: Menu, Right Arrow, Up Arrow, and Enter. There are other control stations that can be used to reset the total, acknowledge relays, set a tare, and run a batch process. There are even control stations with no text on the buttons that can be used for any purpose the user requires. An emergency stop control station is also available. The control stations come pre-assembled with 1 to 4 Normally Open (NO) red, green, yellow, or black pushbuttons. Knockouts on the top and bottom of the enclosure are provided for convenient wiring and two mounting holes on the back of the enclosure make it easy for wall mounting.
The PDA1500 High VAC/VDC to Logic Level Converter is an easy to use DIN rail mounted device for converting high voltage signals into logic level signals for use as a digital input to a wide range of process control and display equipment.
- The PDA6405 split core AC current transformers convert the high AC current flowing through a cable or wire to a 0-5 AAC output and are available in ranges of 100, 200, 400, 600, and 1000 AAC. These nonintrusive devices feature split core convenience for easy installation and are a costeffective solution for monitoring load or proof of operation. These current transformers are ideal for monitoring current loads on pumps, driving fans and blowers, and sensing the status of heating coils and lighting.
The PDA1004 four relay external expansion module adds four 3 amp Form A (SPST) relays to any ProVu meter. It can be configured for functions similar to the ProVu onboard relays and can be added at any time.
The PDA1011 analog output external expansion module adds an additional 2 analog outputs to any dual-input ProVu meter or ProVu Modbus® scanner (i.e. PD6060, PD6080, PD6081, PD6088, PD6089, PD6262, or PD6363). It can be configured for functions similar to the ProVu onboard analog output and can be added at any time.
The PDA1044 digital I/O external expansion module adds four digital inputs and four digital outputs to any ProVu meter. Up to two digital I/O expansion modules may be added to each meter, for a total of eight (8) additional digital inputs and outputs per meter. External digital inputs function similarly to the F4 digital input on most ProVu models. They can be configured to trigger events (e.g. acknowledge/reset alarms, reset max and/or min values, disable/enable all output relays), provide specific menu access, or mimic front keys. Digital outputs can be used to remotely monitor alarm relay states or the states of a variety of actions and functions executed by the meter.
