Precision Digital's ProtEx PD6830X Modbus Scanner is designed for accurate display and quick access of information, locally or remotely, in hazardous areas and applications and can accept up to 16 individually programmed process variables. Courtesy: PreciPrecision Digital’s ProtEx PD6830X Modbus Scanner is a rugged, explosion-proof, NEMA 4/IP68 Modbus multi-purpose meter designed for accurate display and quick access of information, locally or remotely, in hazardous areas and applications. It can accept up to 16 individually programmed process variables (PVs) from multiple devices; four math channels allow for calculations on multiple PVs. The SafeTouch through-glass buttons allow operation without removing the cover and the pulse input accepts a wide range of flow transmitter signals, including mV input from a magnetic flowmeter, as well as high frequency signals. 

Four sensors in the PD6830X operate as through-glass buttons for programming and operation without removing the cover in hazardous areas. These SafeTouch buttons include an energy saving mode to save power, extend battery life, and prevent unintended triggers. The PD6830X also has power options including battery, DC with battery backup, DC only, output-loop, or output loop with battery backup. Its element-resistant enclosure provides three threaded conduit holes and integrated pipe or wall mounting holes. Operating temperatures range from -40 to 75 C.
