February 24, 2015 - Precision Digital Corporation, global leader in digital panel meters and control instrumentation for over four decades, today announced improvements to a ProVu family member, the PD6100 Strain Gauge Meter and its explosion-proof counterpart, the PD8-6100 Strain Gauge Meter. These are reliable digital strain gauge & load cell meters ideal for weight, millivolt, and force measurement applications. The multipurpose PD6100 and PD8-6100 feature one-button zeroing of the display, auto-zero adjustment (to prevent drift), and clear information display in sleek panel-mounted or rugged field-mounted enclosures.
The ProVu PD6100 Strain Gauge Meter has been enhanced with the ability to power up to twelve (12) 350 Ω load cells. This improvement makes the PD6100 the perfect choice for weighing applications in large bins, tanks, or scales, because it enables more load cells to be averaged to determine weight, volume, or level. The meter programming buttons have also been improved to more closely resemble the operation of a typical scale, allowing for zeroing the meter with one button push. Tare/Reset Tare functionality empowers the meter to compensate for anomalies such as sludge buildup at the bottom of an empty tank. Additionally, the PD6100's powerful dual-scale capability permits the measurement to be displayed in two different units of measure.
The explosion-proof PD8-6100 is rated NEMA 4X/IP68 and carries worldwide agency approvals (FM, CSA, ATEX, IECex, & CE), branding it the optimal choice for use in hazardous locations or in the field under the harshest environmental conditions, including extreme cold.
The PD6100 and PD8-6100 Meters can perform automatic unit conversions when switching between pre-defined units, such as pounds, kilograms, and tons, without the need for additional scaling. Both the PD6100 and PD8-6100 accept mV input signals up to 300 mV (unipolar) and ± 250 mV (bipolar), and are rated for a max current of 350 mA @ 10 V.
