Red Lion Controls is launching the PAX2A Dual-Line Display Meter for displaying input, total, minimum, maximum or setpoint values on a 0.7-inch high, six-digit LCD display. These values can be displayed in red, orange or green, with user-programmable colour changes tied to setpoints to provide operators with a visual indication of changing conditions in the application - with updates up to 160 times per second.
In addition, the panel meter 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; this accommodates totalising applications where a six-digit display would be inadequate. Furthermore, a three-digit programmable custom unit indicator is also available.
The PAX2A dual-line display meter provides universal functionality, including universal inputs; the same meter accepts DC current, DC voltage, process signal, and thermocouple and RTD temperature sensor inputs. For further versatility, the PAX2A supports universal power input - from 50 to 250V AC or 21.6 to 250V DC. As well as built-in USB and Modbus communications, there are field-installable option cards for RS232, RS485, DeviceNet and Profibus.
Jeff Thornton, Red Lion's Product Manager, comments: "The PAX2A provides maximum application flexibility, allowing users to stock just one meter for numerous applications. The dual-line display delivers an ideal solution for applications that require two parameters to be visualised simultaneously. For example, PAX2A can read a flow rate through a pipeline while totalising the gallons, or indicate the temperature of an oven while also displaying the setpoint value."
