Level

Level
Level is one of the most common applications for Precision Digital’s meters. Our most popular products can be used for level applications and we also have meters that are specifically intended for use in level systems. These digital panel meters and explosion-proof indicators communicate critical level information at eye-level to the operator, effectively increasing safety by eliminating the need for operators to climb the tanks. The level can also be controlled with the use of relays, open collector, or 4-20 mA analog outputs. Select products include specialized level features such as pump alternation control, unique feet & inches displays with clearly labeled units, and dual-scale level displays that show level in two units from a single transmitter signal.

  • The Vantageview PD6730X is a plastic, field-mounted, RS485 serial input Modbus® RTU scanner capable of scanning up to 16 Modbus variables and displaying them on an easy-to-read, dual-line, LCD display. It can be programmed as a Modbus RTU master, slave, or snooper. The PD6730X is available in two upper display line configurations: 5-digit decimal display and feet & inches display with bar graph. The lower line is the same for both versions and consists of seven alphanumeric characters. Two features that really make the PD6730X stand out are its wide viewing angle display and SafeTouch® through-window buttons. These buttons allow the PD6730X to be programmed and operated through the cover window, thus eliminating the need to remove the cover in dirty or wet environments.

  • The Vantageview PD6701 is one of Precision Digital's most advanced and feature-packed plastic, field-mounted, loop-powered indicators designed specifically for level applications that require a feet & inches display. The PD6701 can indicate up to 399 feet, 11 and 15/16 (or 7/8) inches. The PD6701 is built in a NEMA 4X and IP65 rated plastic enclosure which can stand up to even the harshest environmental conditions. It features a dual-line display that can be easily scaled in the field for any 4-20 mA analog input. Two features that really make the PD6701 stand out are its wide viewing angle display and SafeTouch® through-window buttons. These buttons allow the PD6701 tank-side indicator to be programmed and operated through the cover window, thus eliminating the need to remove the cover in dirty or wet environments.

  • The ProtEX FarVu PD6870 is an explosion-proof, loop-powered process meter with 1" display digits in a field-mountable enclosure designed for demanding applications in hazardous areas or in the harshest environmental conditions. The meter derives all of its power from the 4-20 mA loop with a small 1 V drop so there is no need to run additional, costly power lines into a hazardous area. Like all ProtEX products, the PD6870 loop-powered indicator carries FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approvals for use in hazardous areas. It is programmed using four easy-to-access, front-mounted control dials.

  • The ProtEX-MAX PD8-6060 offers all the functionality of the ProVu PD6060 as a fully FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approved explosion-proof product. It accepts two inputs of either a process current (4-20 mA) or process voltage (0-5V, 1-5V, etc.) signal. It displays these signals on a dual-line, 6-digit Sunbright® sunlight readable display. The meter can be customized such that these two inputs are displayed in a variety of ways, including both at the same time with tags or the result of math functions performed on one or both of the inputs. The PD8-6060 includes a 24 VDC power supply to drive the transmitter and can be equipped with four internal relays and a 4-20 mA analog output. It can be programmed and operated without opening the housing by using the built-in SafeTouch® through-glass buttons or the RS485 serial communication port with free Modbus® protocol.

    Why you should buy:
  • The PD662 NEMA 4X, CSA Certified loop-powered meter is perfect
    for applications where a simple, inexpensive display is required
    and AC power is not available. The PD662 derives all its power
    from the 4-20 mA loop, including its optional backlight feature. It
    can be easily scaled in the field using four push buttons; with or
    without applying an actual calibration signal. The PD662’s display
    will read up to 2999; we call this 3½+ digits! The PD662 is housed
    in a rugged NEMA 4X enclosure and is provided with one ½" NPT
    pipe conduit hole.

  • The PD6001 is a member of the ProVu series of 1/8 DIN digital panel meters specifically designed to display level in feet and inches, instead of the usual decimal format. The PD6001 accepts a process current (4-20 mA) or process voltage (0-5V, 1-5V, etc.) signal and displays that signal on a dual line display with convenient feet and inches designations on the upper line. The upper display can even read fractions of an inch in 8ths or 16ths. The lower line can be used to indicate a tag or to display the input in another scale, such as volume in gallons or liters. Like all ProVu meters, the PD6001 includes UL / C-UL listing and CE marking, a NEMA 4X front, and AC or DC power options. ProVu meters can be equipped with up to four internal relays, a 4-20 mA output and Modbus® serial communications. The PD6001 includes a 24 VDC power supply to drive the transmitter and can be programmed via the front panel pushbuttons or free MeterView® Pro software.
