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.

  • The ProtEX-MAX PD8-6000 explosion-proof process meter offers all the functionality of the ProVu PD6000 as a fully FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approved explosion-proof product. 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 RS485 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:
  • 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.

     

     

     

     

    Why you should buy:
  • The ProtEX PD6830X is an explosion-proof, 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. This Modbus scanner can be programmed as a Modbus RTU master, slave, or snooper. The PD6830X 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. Like all ProtEX products, the PD6830 carries FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approvals for use in hazardous areas. Two features that really make the PD6830X stand out are its wide viewing angle display and SafeTouch® through-glass buttons. These buttons allow the PD6830X to be programmed and operated through the glass, thus eliminating the need to remove the cover in a hazardous area.

  • 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 Vantageview PD6730 is a plastic, field-mounted 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. The PD6730 is built in a NEMA 4X and IP65 rated plastic enclosure which can stand up to even the harshest environmental conditions. It can be powered from an included battery or a 24 VDC external power supply. Some features that really make the PD6730 stand out are its automatic unit conversions from flowmeter k-factor units, ability to log up to 1024 data points, and SafeTouch® through-window buttons. These buttons allow the PD6730 to be programmed and operated through the cover window, thus eliminating the need to remove the cover in dirty or wet environments.
