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-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.

  • The Vantageview PD6720 is a plastic, field-mounted, 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. 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. The PD6720 is built in a NEMA 4X and IP65 rated plastic enclosure which can stand up to even the harshest environmental conditions. Two features that really make it stand out are a wide viewing angle display and SafeTouch® through-window buttons. These buttons allow the PD6720 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 ProtEX-MAX PD8-6080 Super Snooper Modbus® scanner offers all the functionality of the ProVu PD6080 as a fully FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approved explosion-proof product. It is a multi-purpose display and controller capable of scanning up to 16 process variables and includes dual analog process inputs. The scanner can be programmed as a Modbus RTU master, slave, or snooper. It is the ideal display for Modbus multivariable transmitters or for existing Modbus networks with transmitters in need of a conveniently located display in a hazardous area. As a master, the PD8-6080 can read up to 16 Modbus registers on up to 16 Modbus devices and automatically alternate each of these process variables (PVs) on the dual-line display along with a unit and tag for each. In snooper mode, the scanner can read any Modbus variables being polled by a master, which allows you to easily add a display into an existing Modbus network. Powerful math functions may be applied to the analog or Modbus inputs, such as addition, difference, average, and ratio. The PD8-6080 includes a 24 VDC power supply to drive the transmitter and can be equipped with four internal relays and two 4-20 mA outputs. It can be programmed and operated without opening the housing by using the built-in SafeTouch® through-glass buttons.

  • The ProtEX-MAX PD8-150 offers all the functionality of the Vigilante II PD150 as a fully FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approved explosion-proof product. It provides alarming and monitoring capabilities for all of your level, pressure, flow, and other process switches. These explosion-proof alarm annunciators are available in two models; the PD8-154 has four (4) inputs and the PD8-158 has eight (8) inputs. Each model accepts inputs from relays, float switches, digital outputs, and many other discrete (on/off) devices. They can be field programmed for all common ISA alarm sequences including first out indication and provide alarm signaling through front panel LEDs and a built in 85 dB horn. The silence, acknowledge, and reset functions can be operated without opening the housing by using the built-in SafeTouch® through-glass buttons. Custom printed message labels can be included with your order at no additional charge.
