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.

The PD6870 is an FM Approved, CSA Certified and ATEX and IECEx Certified explosion-proof loop-powered indicator that is easy to install and program. It can be seen from considerable distance and even in bright sunlight. The fact that this meter is loop-powered means that there is no need to run additional, costly power lines into a hazardous area. The meter gets all of the power it needs from the 4-20 mA loop and its 1 V drop results in a minimal burden on the loop. The meter features a wide -40 to +75°C operating temperature range and comes with two ¾" NPT threaded conduit openings and flanges for wall or pipe mounting. Calibration is a quick two-step process involving the adjustment of only high and low, non-interacting potentiometers.

Input

Input: 4-20 mA
Accuracy: ±0.1% of full span ±1 count
Temperature Drift: 150 PPM/°C from -40 to 75°C ambient
Decimal Point: User selectable decimal point
Calibration Range: 4 mA input: -1000 to +1000; 20 mA between 20 and 2000 counts greater than 4 mA display. Two point linear display span.
Maximum Voltage Drop: 1 VDC @ 20 mA without backlight; 4 VDC @ 20mA with loop-powered backlight
