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 up to 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.
