Red Lion Controls Inc.'s PAX2A Dual Line
Display Meter can display input, total, minimum, maximum or setpoints on a
0.7-inch-high, six-digit main LCD display. This main display offers three
programmable, easy-to-read colors: red, orange and green. Color change can be
tied to the setpoints, providing the operator with a visual display of changing
conditions in the application - with updates up to 160 times per sec. The panel
meter also features a second display line - with a 0.35-inch-high, nine-digit
green LCD display that can also be programmed for any of the above parameters
and accommodates totalizing applications that easily exceed a normal six-digit
display. A three-digit programmable custom unit indicator is also available.
dual line display meter provides universal functionality, including universal
input. The same meter accepts dc current, dc voltage, process signal, and
thermocouple and RTD temperature sensor inputs. PAX2A also supports universal
power input - from 50 to 25 V ac or 21.6 to 250V dc. Built-in Modbus
communications in addition to field installable option cards: RS232, RS485,
DeviceNet and Profibus allow communications across a multitude of protocols.
