Explosion-Proof

Explosion-Proof
Precision Digital manufactures a wide variety of explosion-proof indicators and controllers which can be powered via either loop or line power and carry all the major approvals, such as FM, CSA, ATEX and IECEx. These instruments will accept a wide range of inputs, such as 4-20 mA, strain gauge, pulse, thermocouple, RTD and Modbus and can be equipped with relays, 4-20 mA outputs and serial re-transmission. They all feature displays that can be easily read in various lighting conditions, from wide angles, and from considerable distances.

  • The ProtEX-Pro PD6800 is one of Precision Digital's most advanced and feature-packed explosion-proof, loop-powered indicators. The fact that this meter is loop-powered means that there is no need to run additional, costly power lines into a hazardous area. Like all ProtEX products, the PD6800 carries FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approvals for use in hazardous areas. It features a dual-line display that can be easily scaled in the field for any 4-20 mA analog input. The display has a five digit upper display, a seven alpha-numeric character lower display, and is available with a twenty-segment bar graph for level applications. Two features that really make the PD6800 stand out are its wide viewing angle display and SafeTouch® through-glass buttons. These buttons allow the PD6800 to be programmed and operated through the glass, thus eliminating the need to remove the cover in a hazardous area.

  • The ProtEX-Lite PD663 is Precision Digital's most economical and compact explosion-proof, loop-powered indicator. The fact that this meter is loop-powered means that there is no need to run additional, costly power lines into a hazardous area. Like all ProtEX products, the PD663 carries FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approvals for use in hazardous areas. It features a single line, four digit, display that can be easily scaled in the field for any 4-20 mA input. The PD663 is built with great looking, modern, die-cast aluminum IP68, NEMA 4X rated enclosure which includes flanges for wall or pipe mounting. This meter is available with an optional backlight feature.


  • 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-F&I PD6801 is one of Precision Digital's most advanced and feature-packed explosion-proof, loop-powered indicators designed specifically for level applications that require a feet & inches display. The PD6801 can indicate up to 399 feet, 11 and 15/16 (or 7/8) inches. Like all ProtEX products, the PD6801 explosion-proof level indicator carries FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approvals for use in hazardous areas. 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 PD6801 stand out are its wide viewing angle display and SafeTouch® through-glass buttons. These buttons allow the PD6801 tank-side indicator to be programmed and operated through the glass, thus eliminating the need to remove the cover in a hazardous area.

  • The ProtEX-RTA PD6820 is an explosion-proof, loop-powered flow rate/totalizer that can display flow rate and total from an analog output (4-20 mA) flowmeter. 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 display has a five digit upper display for rate, a seven alpha-numeric character lower display for total, and comes standard with a backlight. Like all ProtEX products, the PD6820 explosion-proof flow rate/totalizer carries FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approvals for use in hazardous areas. Two features that really make this flow rate/totalizer stand out are a wide viewing angle display and SafeTouch® through-glass buttons. These buttons allow the PD6820 to be programmed and operated through the glass, thus eliminating the need to remove the cover in a hazardous area.

  • The ProtEX-RTP PD6830 is an explosion-proof flow rate/totalizer that can display flow rate and total from a pulse output flowmeter. Its display has a five digit upper line for rate, a seven alpha-numeric character lower line for total, and comes standard with a backlight. Like all ProtEX products, the PD6830 carries FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approvals for use in hazardous areas. It can be powered from an included battery or a 24 VDC external power supply. Some features that really make the PD6830 flow rate/totalizer stand out are its automatic unit conversions from flowmeter k-factor units, ability to log up to 1024 data points, and SafeTouch® through-glass buttons. These buttons allow the PD6830 to be programmed and operated through the glass, thus eliminating the need to remove the cover in a hazardous area.
