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 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.
