The PD650 is a large display, analog input process meter with flow rate/totalizer and batch control capabilities housed in a rugged, die-cast aluminum, NEMA 4X enclosure. It accepts the common process signals such as 4-20 mA, 0-5 VDC, 1-5 VDC and 0-10 VDC and displays these signals in engineering units on a 2.3" (58.42 mm) large, high efficiency, 4 1/2 digit LED display. The 115/230 VAC models also provide two isolated 24 V power supplies to drive both the input and output loops. Options include up to 4 relays for alarm or batch control and an isolated 4-20 mA transmitter output.

Rate/Totalizer/Batch Controller Features

  • Rate Display Indication: LED labeled "R" in lower right illuminates when meter is displaying rate or process input.
  • Alternating Display: Display may be programmed to alternate between rate and total every 10 seconds.
  • Low-Flow Cutoff: Any input below the low-flow cutoff value will result in a display of zero. May be set from 1 count to 100% FS, user selectable. To disable low-flow cutoff, program cutoff value to zero. Totalizer is based on rate display; inputs below the low-flow cutoff value will not affect the totalizer.
  • Total Display: 0 to 999,999, automatic lead zero blanking
  • Total Decimal Point: May be set in any of the following positions: 9.99999, 99.9999, 999.999, 9999.99, 99999.9, 999999. Total decimal point is independent of process/rate decimal point.
  • Time Base: Seconds, minutes, hours, or days
  • Total Conversion Factor: Programmable from 0.00001 to 59999
  • Totalizer: Calculates total based on rate and field programmable multiplier to display total in engineering units. Total is stored in non-volatile memory.
  • Totalizer Rollover: Totalizer rolls over when total exceeds 999,999. Relay status reflects the display value.
  • Totalizer Presets: Up to four, user selectable under Setup menu. Any set point can be assigned to total and may be programmed anywhere in the range of the meter. Relays assigned to total trip when total reaches the preset value and reset when total is reset to zero or when acknowledged manually. Can be programmed so when the highest preset value is reached the total automatically resets to zero.
  • Preset Offset: Relays that are assigned to total can be programmed to trip at any point below the next relay's preset value. If preset offset mode is selected the corresponding relay will always trip at a programmed offset value before the next relay trips.
  • Example: Set point 1 and 2 are set up for total, with Offset selected (under set point 2). If the preset offset is set at 10, (during Set Points programming for set point 1), then relay 1 will trip 10 counts before relay 2.
  • Programmable Delay on Release: If the meter is programmed to reset total to zero automatically when the highest preset is reached, there will be a delay before the total relays are reset. This delay can be programmed between 1 and 999 seconds.
  • Priority Batch Programming: This feature allows the user to quickly change preset values without going into the main menu by holding the ENTER button for more than 3 seconds.
  • Total Reset: Via front panel ENTER button, external contact closure, or automatically via user selectable preset value.

  • Total Reset Lockout: Meter may be programmed
  • Rating: 2 or 4 Form C (SPDT); rated 2 A @ 30 VDC or 2 A @ 250 VAC resistive load; 1/14 HP @ 125/250 VAC inductive
  • Assign to Process/Rate or Total: Any relay may be assigned to process/rate or total (process/rate meters).
  • Built-in Suppression: Each relay contact is protected by a built-in suppressor (snubber) to prolong the life of the relays and provide a degree of protection against electrical noise caused by inductive loads. Suppressors value: 0.01 ;µF/470 O, 250 VAC.
  • Deadband: 0-100% FS, user selectable
  • High or Low Alarm: User may program any alarm for high or low
  • Relay Operation: Latching or non-latching
  • Fail-Safe Operation: Relay coils are energized in non-alarm condition. In case of power failure, relays will go to alarm state. Fail-safe operation may be disabled, by removing jumper J5 located on the options board.
  • Auto Initialization: When power is applied, relays assigned to total will reflect the state of the accumulated Total value in memory. Relays assigned to process/rate or temperature will reflect the state of the input to the meter.
  • Relays Reset: User select via jumper array and menu Total Relays Reset (process/rate meters):
    1.When total is reset to zero, if set up for external
    total reset.
    2.After delay has elapsed, if set up for internal total reset.
    3.Manual any time, if set up for external total reset. Manual reset resets all manually resettable relays.

Process/Rate & Temperature Relays Reset:

  • Relays assigned to process/rate or temperature may be programmed to reset in any of the following ways:
    1.Automatic reset when the input passes the reset point.
    2.Manual reset at any time (via user supplied external contact closure at terminals AK and CM or front panel ACK button). Manual reset resets all manually resettable relays.
    3.Automatic plus manual reset at any time. Relays will automatically reset when input passes the reset point. Relays can also be manually reset at any time (via user supplied external contact closure at terminals AK and CM or front panel ACK button). Manual reset resets all manually resettable relays.
    4.Manual reset only after alarm condition corrected. Relays can be manually reset only after alarm condition has been corrected (via user supplied external contact closure at terminals AK and CM or front panel ACK button). Manual reset resets all manually resettable relays.

Isolated 4-20 mA Transmitter Output

  • Scaling Range: Anywhere in range of meter, 501 counts minimum span for process/rate meter; reverse scaling allowed.
  • Accuracy: ±0.1% FS ±0.004 mA
  • Isolation: 500 V input-to-output or input/output-to-24 VDC supply
  • External Loop Power Supply: 35 VDC maximum

The PD650, PD655, and PD656 are ideal for loops that consist of a transmitter, a digital meter, and a DCS or computer because they can provide isolated power to drive both the input and output loops.

Batch Control with Varying Batch Sizes

To simplify batch control applications with varying batch sizes, use one or more switches to control the relay outputs. The switch allows the operator to disable the process when changing presets in the meter and then enable the process after all the changes have been made and the process is ready to resume. The switch serves as a "Stop/Ready" control.
