The Sabre P model PD603 is an easy to use 1/8 DIN digital panel meter that has all the important features customers want in a process input meter. These features include field selectable 0-20 mA, 4-20 mA, 0-5, 1-5, or ±10 V inputs, NEMA 4X front panel, UL and C-UL Listing for 508 Industrial Control Equipment, and optional 24 VDC power supply for the transmitter. The meter is easily programmed and scaled with its four front panel buttons and simple menu structure.

Easy Setup & Programming

The Sabre P process meter is easily programmed using the four front panel buttons. There are no jumpers or switches to configure and there is no need to ever open the case.

Front Panel Buttons

Front Panel Buttons

To simplify programming, one menu handles all the setup functions.

  • Press the Menu button to enter or exit the Programming Mode at any time.
  • Press the Right arrow button to move to the next digit during digit programming.
  • Press the Up arrow button to scroll through the menus, decimal point, or to increment the value of a digit.
  • Press the Enter/Ack button to access a menu or to accept a setting.

Menu Structure

The menu consists of the following functions: Setup and Password. Press the Menu button to enter the Programming Mode then press the Up arrow button to scroll through the menu.

The Setup menu is used to select the input signal, scale or calibrate the meter, and select the decimal point. The Password menu is used to program a password.

The display moves to the next menu after the Enter/ACK button is pressed.

Menu Structure

Setting Numeric Values

The numeric values are set using the Right and Up arrow buttons. Press the Right arrow button to select next digit and the Up arrow button to increment the digit value.

The digit being changed is displayed brighter than the rest.

Press the Enter/ACK button, at any time, to accept a setting or the Menu button to exit without saving the changes.

Setting Numeric Values

Simple Operation

Look to the Sabre P process meter for the key features you want and don’t worry about getting bogged down in a confusing array of things you don’t need. The Sabre P provides all the utility needed to handle your application with accuracy and simplicity.

Maximum/Minimum Readings

To display the maximum and minimum readings since the last reset/power-up, use the Up arrow/Max button.

Process Inputs

The Sabre P meter is factory calibrated to accept 0-20, 4-20 mA, 0-5, 1-5, 0-10, and ±10 VDC. The meter can be scaled with or without applying an input signal for any display range required.

Current & Voltage Inputs

Setting up the meter to accept current or voltage input could not be easier. All setup is performed with the front panel buttons and there are no switches or jumpers to deal with.

The removable screw terminal connectors are clearly labeled to prevent wiring errors.

Transmitters Powered by Internal Supply (optional)

Current Overload Protection

To protect the meter from unexpected current overload the current input circuit contains an auto-resettable fuse. The fuse limits the current to a safe level when it detects a fault condition, and automatically resets itself when the fault condition is removed.

24 VDC Transmitter Power Supply

Certain PD603 models do not provide the 24 VDC to power the transmitter. The PDA1024-01 24 VDC power supply can provide the power for the transmitter. If you want the meter to power the transmitter, then use the PD603-6R0-1.

Physical Features

The PD603 is designed for ease-of-use in industrial applications. It is housed in a shallow depth case and includes a NEMA 4X front panel, removable screw terminal connectors, snap in place mounting brackets, forgiving panel cutout requirement, and UL Listing for electrical safety.

Removable Screw Terminal Connectors

Industrial applications require screw terminal connections for easy field wiring and the PD603 goes one step further in convenience by making them removable also.

Removable Screw Terminal Connectors

Forgiving Panel Cutout Requirement

The PD603's bezel has been oversized to allow for not perfectly executed panel cutouts where NEMA 4X seal is not required.

Forgiving Panel Cutout Requirement

Secured-in-Place Rugged Mounting Brackets

If you’re installing the PD603 outdoors in the hot or cold weather, the last thing you want to do is fumble around with mounting brackets that don’t stay in place. The PD603's mounting brackets can be easily secured into place and then screwed down to the panel. These brackets are rugged so they can be tightened to the panel to provide a solid NEMA 4X seal.

Type 4X / NEMA 4X Front Panel

Type 4X / NEMA 4X Front Panel

Not only does the PD603’s front panel UL Type 4X approval indicate it is waterproof, but it also indicates it is rugged. Part of the UL Type 4X test is to drop a 2-inch solid stainless steel ball from 8 feet on top of the meter’s faceplate.

NEMA 4 & 4X Field Enclosures

Precision Digital offers a variety of rugged enclosures that provide a high degree of protection against harsh operating environments and a convenient way to mount the meters to a wall. Thermoplastic and stainless steel NEMA 4X, and painted steel NEMA 4 enclosures for up to 10 PD603 meters are available. Many enclosures also have sufficient space to house Precision Digital’s model PDA1024-01 24 V power supply, and other devices.
