A Message From Sales

Joe Ryan, VP of Sales and Marketing at Precision Digital
Though it has flown by, we're 2/3 the way through the year. Here at Precision Digital, we've rolled out new products, seen some great growth with new and existing customers, and rolled out all kinds of new website features and tools.

Most significantly, we launched our new 2018 catalog! This catalog contains all the new products we have come out with in the last year, including our Industrial Wireless Systems for quick and easy wire replacement and our hazardous area approved intrinsically safe and nonincendive meters such as the new loop leader loop-powered meters. If you use or are considering using wireless signals in your next application or are looking for a loop-powered or hazardous area display, I suggest you check them out on our What's New page.

News & Information

New and Old Loop Leader
The ideal industrial facility is one in which all process variables remain consistently within normal operating parameters. Such facilities are few and far between, however, so it is necessary that personnel are quickly and effectively notified of abnormal process conditions so that they may be dealt with accordingly. In industrial facilities where there are a multitude of process variables at play, such as automated manufacturing plants, waste water treatment facilities, and the oil and natural gas industries, implementing a successful alarm indication protocol can quickly become frustratingly complex.

MeterView XL Software
Watch this recorded webinar to learn how Precision Digital's feature-packed loop-powered meter makes it more convenient for displaying and controlling your process and how much easier it is to install than a line-powered meter. You will see what display options are available to best represent your process. If you want more control over your process, the Loop Leader is not just a display, we will show you how it can be used for specific applications like pump control, alarm triggering, and more. Need to install your meter in a hazardous area? We will discuss where and how the intrinsically safe and nonincendive approved versions of the Loop Leader can be used. And finally, we'll show how the free USB software greatly simplifies the programming process on the Loop Leader.

MeterView XL Software
For this year's new 2018 Catalog, we wanted to make it as easy as possible for our customers to find what they're looking for. That's why we organized the meters by input type. This allows you to see side-by-side, all available meters for a particular input. Request a copy of the 2018 Catalog today and see what's new like the universal approvals on the new Loop Leader, the full spread of industrial wireless products, or the pump alternation control diagram that shows an example of a level application. The catalog also contains a colorful poster of our most popular products - the ProVu, ProtEX-MAX, and Helios in actual size. This will give you a close look at how big the Helios really is! So, when looking for the best fit for your application look through Precision Digital's new 2018 Catalog. Visit to request your copy of the 2018 Catalog.
