CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Precision Digital Corp is open for business today and we are providing application and technical support and order entry as normal. However, due to interruptions in international supply chains, our ability to ship product has been severely hampered and we don’t expect that to change until late April.

Take Out the Old...Bring In the New

PD684 Loop Leader
PD684 Loop Leader

With the recent launch of the New Loop Leader, the price of the older loop-powered panel meters is going to increase substantially and they will be discontinued when supplies are exhausted.

The affected older models are the PD683, PD684, PD688, and PD689 loop-powered panel meters. New pricing on these models is effective 7/1/18. We will currently sell these meters for as long as supply of meters and components allows. However, we strongly recommend all our customers plan on moving to the new models immediately. The New Loop Leader PD6600 series is a lower cost, superior display, with many new features. The dual-line LCD, multiple display options, red backlight, solid-state relays, and two open collectors are just a few of the many features making it a no brainer when it comes to replacing your old loop-powered meter. See the comparisons of the old and new Loop Leader below.

The new and old Loop-Leaders both fit in the same 1/8 DIN panel cutout and extend 3.2" behind the panel. They do have different wiring connections as the diagrams illustrate above.
