Precision Digital Expands ProVu® Family of Panel Meters: PD6001 Features Easy-to-Read Feet & Inches Display

ProtEX®-MAX PD8-6001 is Explosion-Proof Feet & Inches Meter for Hazardous Areas

Holliston, MA — Precision Digital Corporation, global leader in digital panel meters and control instrumentation celebrating its 40th year in business, today announced the latest ProVu® family member, the PD6001 Feet & Inches 1/8 DIN Panel Meter. A NEMA 4X panel mounted indicator, the PD6001 is based on a reliable, economical design that features an easy-to-read feet & inches display with adjustable brightness. FT and IN indicators make it ideal for level applications. It is also available as the ProtEX®-MAX PD8-6001, an explosion-proof meter for hazardous areas.

The PD6001 and PD8-6001 Feet & Inches Meters include field-selectable inputs, allowing seamless integration of existing 0-20/4-20 mA or +/-10 V transmitters. The meters can also be set up as Modbus RTU Slaves.

Both meters can be easily installed into virtually any level application using common 4-20 mA or 0-10 V level transmitters. The displayed product level may be clearly labeled with a custom tag and unit. Programming the unit is even easier with free MeterView® Pro software, which streamlines meter setup and eliminates a lot of button pushing.

The ProtEX-MAX PD8-6001 Feet & Inches Meter is housed in an explosion-proof enclosure for use in hazardous areas. SafeTouch® through-glass buttons provide accessibility to the front buttons without removing the enclosure cover, keeping the meter's interior electronics fully protected. The entire product carries FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEX approvals for use in hazardous area level applications or in the field under the harshest environmental conditions.

"We regularly communicate with distributors, end users, and technicians in the field, which leads to the development of new products," said Jeffrey Peters, President of Precision Digital Corp. "The success of our Super Snooper Modbus® Scanners, coupled with the demand for Feet & Inches displays, influenced the expansion of the ProVu Series to include a low-cost model that doesn’t sacrifice quality."

Options include up to four (4) relays, a 4-20 mA analog output, and dual 24 VDC power supplies. Expansion modules for the 1/8 DIN models add an additional four (4) relays, two (2) 4-20 mA outputs, and eight (8) digital I/O.

The ProVu® PD6001 and ProtEX®-MAX PD8-6001 meters are available now. Prices start at $374 for the ProVu and $1573 for the ProtEX-MAX.
