What sets the Helios apart from other Large Display Meters is its dual line display with super bright LEDs that can be read even in bright sunlight and up to 100 feet away. Based on Precision Digital's popular line of ProVu® digital panel meters, the Helios can satisfy a wide variety of level, flow, temperature, pressure, & weight applications. It is available with models that accept 4-20 mA, thermocouple, RTD, pulse, strain gauge, AC and DC volts and current, and even Modbus®.
Go with the Helios PD2-6001 when you prefer to read level in feet and inches instead of the more common decimal format. This unique display will read up to 99 feet, 11 & 15/16s inches on the upper line. The lower line can display a tag or volume, even from non-linear tanks such as round horizontal ones. The PD2-6001 makes a great outdoor tank side indicator because its display is bright enough to read in direct sunlight and it will operate from -40 to 150°F. The PD2-6001 can also be equipped with a 4-20 mA output as well as four relays that can be used for alarming or controlling applications, including pump alternation control.
