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 PD6928-GP loop-powered flow rate/totalizers 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 flow rate on the 5-character alphanumeric top display and flow total, flow grand total, or a 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 four CapTouch through-window buttons located on the front of the meter provide a convenient way to operate the meter 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.

  • The PD6938 ProtEX+ pulse input flow rate/totalizers can be installed in a variety of areas (hazardous, dirty, wet, corrosive, hot, or cold) to provide convenient and informative display of flow rate and total from any pulse output flowmeter. These instruments will accept a variety of pulse inputs, including slow pulse rates. They can be powered from a 9-30 VDC power supply or the 4-20 mA output loop, have on-board datalogging capabilities, come with explosion-proof and intrinsically safe approvals, and can be ordered with optional 4-20 mA output and two relays. The PD6938, with the addition of its two optional relays, can also be used as a simple batch controller.

    The PD6938 ProtEX+ is available in aluminum and stainless steel enclosures that are designed for easy use and installation. The process connection is available in M20, 3/4" NPT and 1" NPT and there are two other conduit holes for field wiring.

    Free, PC-based, MeterView XL software that connects to the meter via a micro-USB cable is available for programming and setup of the instruments. Four CapTouch through-window buttons are available to operate the instrument without removing the cover.

    All models come equipped with two open collector outputs and a digital input. There are also models available with Modbus RTU RS-485 communications, two solid-state relays, and isolated 4-20 mA analog output options.

  • The ProtEX-MAX PD8-6000 explosion-proof process meter offers all the functionality of the ProVu PD6000 as a CSA, ATEX, and IECEx certified explosion-proof product. It is available in an aluminum or stainless steel enclosure and will operate over a wide temperature range of -55 to 65°C (-67 to 149°F). It accepts a process current (4-20 mA) or process voltage (0-5V, 1-5V, etc.) signal and displays it on a dual-line, 6-digit Sunbright sunlight readable display. The meter includes a 24 VDC power supply to drive the transmitter and can be equipped with four internal relays and a 4-20 mA output. The PD8-6000 can be programmed and operated without opening the housing by using the built-in SafeTouch through-glass buttons or the RS-485 serial communication port with free Modbus protocol.

  • The PD685 is an easy to use, loop-powered indicator, certified by CSA, ATEX and IECEx as intrinsically safe. The PD685 carries international certifications under both the Class/Division System and Zone System, and is thereby suitable for use in gas and dust hazardous areas worldwide. For Division 2 applications where intrinsically safe interfaces are not needed, the PD685 is able to be installed without barriers! To achieve this ability, the PD685 underwent a special 'nonarcing assessment' under the UL 121201 and CSA C22.2 No. 213 standards, and was determined to be a device incapable of causing an ignition on its own. The PD685 is wellsuited for both indoor and outdoor applications and carries a variety of environmental ratings, including NEMA 4, Type 4X and IP67.

    The PD685 can be seen from considerable distance in bright sunlight or dimly lit areas when the standard backlight feature is activated. 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 its 1 V (4 V with backlight) drop results in a minimal burden on the loop. The meter features a wide -40 to 75°C operating temperature range and is available 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 sets of coarse and fine, non-interacting potentiometers.


    Why you should buy:
  • The PD6801 is a rugged, full-featured, explosion-proof loop-powered meter specifically designed for level applications in hazardous areas or in the harshest environmental conditions. Instead of the usual decimal display, the meter displays level in feet, inches, and fractions of an inch with a 20-segment tank level indicator. The secondary display can show a custom unit or tag, percent full, or a second scale for the 4-20 mA input used to indicate volume. The backlight feature makes the display visible under any lighting condition and can be powered from either the 4-20 mA loop or from a separate DC power supply.

  • Go with the Helios PD2-7000 when you want to display temperature on a large display meter you can see from a distance. The PD2-7000 can accept a variety of thermocouples and RTDs and displays temperature on a six digit display. The PD2-7000's NEMA 4X enclosure, super bright LEDs, and wide operating temperature range make it perfect for outdoor applications.
