A Message From Sales

Joe Ryan, VP of Sales and Marketing at Precision Digital
When it comes to measuring, gauging, and controlling your processes, you know there were projects you planned at the beginning of the year - broken mechanical level indicators, small dim panel meters you can’t read, or alarming and control panels that need rework. If you still want to get those problems solved, Precision Digital has a variety of new products that can help! For starters, stop walking by those old, small, hard to read digital panel meters and replace them with a big, bright, Precision Digital Trident X2 meter!

The transformer steps down the high current to a 0-5 AAC signal that can be inputted directly into the meter. The PD6400 also has a second input that can be used to display voltage up to 300 VAC.
