Field Mounted Indicators

Field Mounted Indicators
Precision Digital manufactures a wide range of field-mounted indicators and controllers that are suitable for harsh and hazardous environments. They can be easily mounted to pipes, walls and other surfaces in your facility, inside or outdoors. These meters feature either rugged NEMA 4X safe area enclosures or FM, CSA, ATEX, IECEx approved explosion-proof enclosures. Field mounted loop-powered meters can be installed in areas with limited access to additional power because they derive their power from the 4-20 mA loop. Many of these meters feature large digits and sunlight readable, wide angle displays.

Field Mounted Indicators

  • The ProtEX+ loop-powered explosion-proof & intrinsically safe meters can be installed virtually anywhere to provide convenient and informative display of any 4-20 mA signal. They can operate down to -40°C and be installed in areas that get as cold as -55°C, however the display will cease functioning. One of the most convenient features is the dual-line display, typically used to display the process variable on the 5-character alphanumeric top display and the units of measure or tag on the 8-character alphanumeric bottom display. Feet and inches models display level in feet and inches on the top display while the 8-digit alphanumeric bottom line may be used to display a tag or custom message. Further enhancing the display on these instruments is a 20-segment bargraph.

    The ProtEX+ Series is CSA Certified as Explosion-Proof / Dust-Ignition Proof / Flame-Proof and ATEX and IECEx Certified as Intrinsically Safe. Four CapTouch through-glass buttons are available to operate the instrument without removing the cover. Free, PC-based, MeterView XL software that connects to the meter via a micro USB cable is available for programming and setup of the meters.

    All models come equipped with two open collector outputs and a digital input. There are also models available with two solid-state relays and isolated 4-20 mA analog output options.

  • The ProtEX+ loop-powered explosion-proof & intrinsically safe flow rate/totalizers can be installed virtually anywhere to provide convenient and informative display of any 4-20 mA signal. They can operate down to -40°C and be installed in areas that get as cold as -55°C, however the display will cease functioning. One of the most convenient features is the dual-line display, typically used to display the flow rate on the 5-character alphanumeric top display and flow total, flow grand total, or tag on the 8-character alphanumeric bottom display. The top display uses 12-segment, and the bottom display uses 14-segment alphanumeric characters for clear indication of tags, units, or alarm messages. Further enhancing the display on these instruments is a 20-segment bargraph.

  • The ProtEX-MAX PD8-765 explosion-proof, large-display, process and temperature meter offers all the functionality of the Trident X2 as a fully FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approved explosion-proof product. PD8-765's huge 1.2" (30.5 mm) sunlight readable display that is visible from over 30 feet away. This explosion-proof indicator can be field programmed to accept process voltage (0-5 V, 1-5 V, etc.) and current (4-20 mA) inputs, 100 Ohm RTDs, and the four most common thermocouples. The intensity of the display can be adjusted to compensate for various lighting conditions, including direct sunlight. The meter 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. Options for the PD8-765 process and temperature indicator include 2 relays, a 4-20 mA output, and a 24 V transmitter power supply.

    Why you should buy:
  • 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 Vantageview PD6700 is one of Precision Digital's most advanced and feature-packed plastic, field-mounted, loop-powered indicators. The fact that this meter is loop-powered means that there is no need to run additional, costly power lines. The PD6700 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. The display has a five digit upper display, a seven alpha-numeric character lower display, and comes with a backlight standard. Two features that really make the PD6700 stand out are its wide viewing angle display and SafeTouch® through-window buttons. These buttons allow the meter to be programmed and operated through the cover window, thus eliminating the need to remove the cover in dirty or wet environments.

    Why you should buy:
    • NEMA 4X/IP65 Enclosure
    • Loop-Powered
    • Level Indication Bargraph Display
  • Go with the Helios PD2-6300 when you want to display both flow rate and total at the same time from a pulse output flowmeter. The PD2-6300 can display both flow rate and total in six full digits and can also be configured to display non-resettable grand total. The PD2-6300's NEMA 4X enclosure, super bright LEDs, and wide operating temperature range make it perfect for outdoor applications.

  • The PD6908-GP loop-powered process meter and PD6907-GP feet & inches level meter include a NEMA 4X, IP66 plastic enclosure and can be installed in a variety of harsh operating environments to provide convenient and informative display of any 4-20 mA signal. One of the most convenient features of these instruments is their dual-line display which is typically used to display the process variable on the 5-character alphanumeric top display and the units of measure or a tag on the 8-character alphanumeric bottom display. The feet & inches models display level in feet and inches on the top display and the bottom 8-character alphanumeric display can be used to display a tag or custom message.

    The VantageView+'s 14-segment alphanumeric characters on the bottom display line provide a much clearer indication of tags, units, or alarm messages than 7-segment characters do.

    Further enhancing the display on these instruments is a 20-segment bargraph.

    The four CapTouch through-window buttons located on the front of the meter provide a convenient way to operate the meter without removing the cover.

  • Go with the Helios PD2-6100 when you have a weighing application where you need to read the display from a distance, or outside in the bright sunlight in temperatures between -40 to 150°F. The PD2-6100 tare feature can be used to remove the weight of the container from the weight calculation. You can even re-transmit the weight signal with the PD2-6100's optional 4-20 mA output.

  • The PD686 is an Intrinsically Safe and Nonincendive, NEMA 4X, loop-powered indicator that is easy to install and program and can be seen from considerable distance. 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 the PD686's 1 V drop results in a minimal burden on the loop. The meter features FM and CSA approvals as Intrinsically Safe and Nonincendive, a wide -40 to 85°C operating temperature range, and is provided with a ½" conduit hole in a location of your choice for easy installation. Calibration is a quick two-step process involving the adjustment of only two non-interacting potentiometers.
