The ProtEX-MAX PD8-6080 Super Snooper Modbus® scanner offers all the functionality of the ProVu PD6080 as a fully FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approved explosion-proof product. It is a multi-purpose display and controller capable of scanning up to 16 process variables and includes dual analog process inputs. The scanner can be programmed as a Modbus RTU master, slave, or snooper. It is the ideal display for Modbus multivariable transmitters or for existing Modbus networks with transmitters in need of a conveniently located display in a hazardous area. As a master, the PD8-6080 can read up to 16 Modbus registers on up to 16 Modbus devices and automatically alternate each of these process variables (PVs) on the dual-line display along with a unit and tag for each. In snooper mode, the scanner can read any Modbus variables being polled by a master, which allows you to easily add a display into an existing Modbus network. Powerful math functions may be applied to the analog or Modbus inputs, such as addition, difference, average, and ratio. The PD8-6080 includes a 24 VDC power supply to drive the transmitter and can be equipped with four internal relays and two 4-20 mA outputs. It can be programmed and operated without opening the housing by using the built-in SafeTouch® through-glass buttons.
