Don't want to read level in decimal format?
Would it be more convenient to read it the way you always have - in Feet and Inches? You can with Precision Digital's unique solutions that allow you to display level the way you want to see it - in a feet and inches format - such as the PD6001 digital panel meter, PD6701 rugged field-mount meter, and PD8-6001 explosion-proof meter.
These displays and controllers can accept 4-20 mA and Modbus inputs, and the most unique thing about them is, they can display the signal in convenient feet and inches designations. The meters can also display fractions of an inch in 8ths or 16ths, and some models even feature a bargraph indicator making it quick to reference the level in the tank.
The PD6001 is a member of the ProVu® series of 1/8 DIN digital panel meters specifically designed to display level in feet and inches, instead of the usual decimal format. The PD6001 accepts a process current (4-20 mA) or process voltage (0-5V, 1-5V, etc.) signal and displays that signal on a dual line display with convenient feet and inches designations on the upper line. The upper display can even read fractions of an inch in 8ths or 16ths. The lower line can be used to indicate a tag or to display the input in another scale, such as volume in gallons or liters. Like all ProVu meters, the PD6001 includes UL / C-UL listing and CE marking, a NEMA 4X front, and AC or DC power options. ProVu meters can be equipped with up to four internal relays, a 4-20 mA output and Modbus® serial communications. The PD6001 includes a 24 VDC power supply to drive the transmitter and can be programmed via the front panel pushbuttons or free MeterView® Pro software.
The Vantageview PD6701 is one of Precision Digital's most advanced and feature-packed plastic, field-mounted, loop-powered indicators designed specifically for level applications that require a feet & inches display. The PD6701 can indicate up to 399 feet, 11 and 15/16 (or 7/8) inches. The PD6701 is built in a NEMA 4X and IP65 rated plastic enclosure which can stand up to even the harshest environmental conditions. It features a dual-line display that can be easily scaled in the field for any 4-20 mA analog input. Two features that really make the PD6701 stand out are its wide viewing angle display and SafeTouch® through-window buttons. These buttons allow the PD6701 tank-side indicator to be programmed and operated through the cover window, thus eliminating the need to remove the cover in dirty or wet environments.
The ProtEX-MAXTM PD8-6001 explosion-proof level indicator offers all the functionality of the ProVu® PD6001 as a fully FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approved explosion-proof product. It is specifically designed to display level in feet & inches, instead of the usual decimal format. The meter accepts a process current (4-20 mA) or process voltage (0-5V, 1-5V, etc.) signal and displays that signal on a dual-line display with convenient feet and inches designations on the upper line. The upper display can even read fractions of an inch in 8ths or 16ths. The lower line can be used to indicate a tag or to display the input in another scale, such as volume in gallons or liters. The PD8-6001 includes a 24 VDC power supply to drive the transmitter and can be equipped with up to four internal relays and a 4-20 mA output. It can be programmed and operated without opening the housing by using the built-in SafeTouch® through-glass buttons or the RS485 serial communication port with free Modbus® protocol.
