As the US Distribution Sales Manager for Precision Digital, I travel all around the country training our distributor partners. I also gather feedback from distributors and end users that work in a wide range of process industries from oil & gas to water & wastewater.
I've found that most folks perceive Precision Digital as a manufacturer of reliable, high quality panel meters. That is certainly true! We've been making panel meters since 1974, and they are a major part of our business. What they don't always know is that we also manufacture field mounted and explosion proof products like the big blue display I'm holding in my picture next to this article. The device I'm holding here is part of our ProtEX-MAX Series.
The ProtEX-MAX is an explosion-proof instrument line with worldwide approvals for use in hazardous areas. However, in many of the installations of the ProtEX-MAX, it is used in a safe area, with no special hazardous area classifications. So, why use an explosion proof indicator?
Precision Digital recently hosted the second webinar of a three part series - Loop-Powered Devices, The Fundamentals. The complete webinar has been recorded and is now available to watch on our archive page or YouTube page. The webinar is an introductory class for those who have to deal with two-wire loop powered meters and other devices, but are not electrical engineers. After watching this webinar you will understand the key criteria for using or specifying a loop-powered device, know if a loop-powered device is qualified for your application, and be able to decide if loop-power is your best choice.

The new PD6001 ProVu dual-line process meter is an economical, multi-purpose, easy-to-use digital process meter featuring a bright, highly visible main display with convenient feet and inches designations ideal for level monitoring.
The ProVu PD6400 High Voltage Meter is one of Precision Digital's latest releases. This multipurpose, easy-to-use 1/8 DIN high voltage and current input meter is ideal for measuring direct voltage and current, or the output from voltage shunts and current transformers. It features one 0-300 VAC or VDC voltage input and one 0-5 AAC or ADC current input. The meter may be used with a single voltage or current input, or to measure both simultaneously and can display voltage, current, and apparent power.
Precision Digital has recently made improvements to the ProVu PD6100. This multipurpose, easy to use digital strain gauge & load cell meter with a max current of 350 mA at 10 V, can now support up to twelve (12) 350 Ω load cells (minimum load resistance of 28 Ω), making it ideal for multipoint weight measurement applications.
The PD6700 Vantageview and PD6800 ProtEX loop-powered meters now feature an easy-to-read 20-segment level indicator.
Precision Digital offers a variety of demo meter kits for various types of process instrumentation. From ProVu panel meters and rate totalizers to ProtEX explosion-proof meters and Modbus scanners, these demos are an impressive way to show a product's features and see how the product works first hand. Many of the panel mounted demo meters are built into a case or a clear plastic box, making it for quick and easy set-up. The ProtEX explosion-proof and Vantageview field-mount indicator demos are stored in a convenient hard plastic case with molded foam interior for ultimate protection. Visit our new demo page at predig.com to see all available demo meters and ordering information.
The Trident Virtual Meter interactive demo has been completely revised in order to make it more informative and easy-to-use, and now features an entirely new mobile friendly interface! The instructions have been rewritten to make it easier to follow and now feature our new Trident How-To videos. You can now watch the Trident How-To videos and program the Virtual Meter all on the same screen; it has never been easier to learn how to program The PD765 Trident meter. The new mobile friendly version allows you to use the virtual meter on your mobile device. Forget how to scale your meter for 4-20 mA input? Want to learn how to set up relays for automatic reset? Just visit tvm.predig.com on your mobile phone and give it a try!
This How-To video series will teach you how to program some of the most common features on the Trident digital panel meter. Videos include programming 0-10 V input, 4-20 mA input, RTD input, thermocouple input, 4-20 mA analog output, serial communications, and relay/alarm operations. Watch videos now.
