About Precision Digital
Precision Digital instruments are used mostly in flow, level, pressure and temperature applications, and are packaged for panel, field and surface mounting. The company’s vast array of products includes line- and loop-powered indicators and rate/totalizers, scanners and annunciators, temperature indicators and controllers, digital pressure gauges, Modbus meters, large display indicators, and multi-channel controllers. A couple of the company’s key products are listed below.
The PD765 Trident digital panel meter is not only one of the most versatile digital panel meters on the market, it will satisfy a wide variety of process applications. It can be field programmed to accept process voltage (0-5V, 1-5V, etc.) and current inputs (4-20 mA), 100 Ohm RTDs, and the four most common thermocouples. It is housed in a shallow-depth, 1/8 DIN enclosure that features a NEMA 4X front panel, as well as convenient mounting hardware. The Trident’s max/min function, two relays with +4-20 mA output, serial communication, and Modbus RTU options provide all the utility you need to handle common applications.
The ProtEX-MAX PD8-6000 explosion-proof process meter is 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, six-digit Sunbright sunlight readable display. The meter includes a 24 VDC power supply to drive the transmitter, and can be equipped with up to 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.
