Water and Wastewater Instrumentation Guide
Precision Digital just released the New Water and Wastewater Instrumentation Solutions Guide. The Solutions Guide is full of examples that show how your colleagues in the water and wastewater industry have used Precision Digital Displays and Controllers to optimize their operations.

They have used our products to:

  • Upgrade their filter press panels with digital displays that can be read from three times the distance as the original meters
  • Monitor such parameters as digester temperature, digester level, and open channel flow
  • Control and alternate pumps in lift station wet wells
  • Totalize influent and effluent with resettable and non-resettable totals
  • Add display and alarm capabilities to gas detection systems
  • Wirelessly transmit 4-20 mA signals from the field to the control room

You can request printed copies of the Water and Wastewater Instrumentations Solutions Guide or download a digital copy.

Trident PD765 and ProtEX-MAX PD8-765 Datasheets
The New PD9000-ENC ConsoliDator+ enclosures provides a convenient way to mount the PD9000 ConsoliDator+ Controller to walls and other vertical structures. The enclosures are available in various sizes and are made of plastic or painted steel. The larger enclosures are capable of housing other pieces of equipment such as the PDA-LH Light / Horn and the PDA1024-01 24 V power supply.

The PDA2909, PDA2919, and PDA2929 are made of painted steel and rated NEMA 4 and include a hinged door with screwed latches. The PDA1909 and PDA1939 are made of plastic and rated NEMA 4X and include a hinged door with hasps.

All the ConsoliDator+ enclosures come pre-cut with one cutout to mount the PD9000 into. For most enclosures, the ConsoliDator+ is mounted in the door of the enclosure thus allowing for direct programming and operation of the device.

For the PDA3939, the ConsoliDator+ is mounted in a hinged subpanel door secured with thumb screws and is fully enclosed by a clear hinged front door with a hasp. No additional mounting hardware other than screws to mount to the wall is needed.

A pipe mounting kit, model PDA6909, is available to mount the enclosures to a 2-inch pipe.

The enclosures and ConsoliDator+ are ordered and packaged separately. See price and delivery on all PD9000-ENC enclosure models

Multiple Pump Control with the ConsoliDator+
If your old panel meters are outdated, hard-to-read, or don’t have enough capabilities for your application it might be time to replace them with the PD765 Trident X2 process and temperature digital panel meter.

The Trident X2 is a great replacement for older, hard-to-see digital panel meters on filter control consoles. It features a 1.2" (30.5 mm) display that is typically more than twice the size of older meters with displays of 0.56" (14.2 mm). Even operators lacking 20/20 vision can easily read the Trident X2’s display from across the room, in direct sunlight, or when its covered in a layer of dust!

Not only does the Trident X2 have a large, easy-to-read display, but it is equipped with 2 relays and a 4-20 mA output giving you more options and even more control over your facility. The Trident is UL Listed and features a NEMA 4X front panel. See more details on the Trident X2.
