MeterView for Trident

Meterview for PD765 or PD8-765

Note: PD765 is not powered from USB connection and requires external power to be programmed.

MeterView software allows remote programming and data acquisition of the Trident series. The remote programming allows for all available meter settings to be programmed from a personal computer through an easy user-friendly interface. The data acquisition allows the user to gather readings from up to 100 meters at user-selected intervals and generate charts using common tools like Microsoft Excel.

Digital Panel Meters make a great front end to a PC-based data acquisition system. They are easy to set up, can be used for a wide range of inputs, will power the transmitter, and best of all provide a local display of the process. Precision Digital has the perfect package with its Trident Digital Panel Meters, a wide selection of serial adapters and converters and free MeterView software. Data is displayed on the PC and written to a file that could then be imported into a spreadsheet or other application.
