Red Lion Controls, Inc. announces the newest release of free Crimson® 2.0 software can now be used to simply program the company’s dual line display panel meter, PAX2A.

Adding to the easy front panel key programming already possible with the PAX2A, users can now also program the meter with simple mouse clicks and drop-down menus via the built-in USB port.

Eight simple programming windows guide users through various parameters, such as input set-up, display format and output format. The program file can be saved on a computer, facilitating easy recall at a later date. Users can also extract and save an existing program from a meter. The program can then be downloaded to other meters, making duplicate setups simple and fast.

"Designed for ultimate application flexibility, the PAX2A Dual Line Display Meter allows visualization of two distinct parameters simultaneously," said Jeff Thornton, Red Lion Product Manager. "The versatile design of PAX2A allows users to stock up on just one type of meter for numerous applications, and now it’s even easier to program multiple PAX2A meters with Crimson software."

The PAX2A meter features two lines for displaying input, total, minimum, maximum and/or setpoints. The main display—a 0.7-inch high 6 digit LCD line—can be set to red, orange and green colors, which can be tied to the setpoints to deliver easy-to-read visual indication of changing application conditions. The second line, a 0.35-inch high 9-digit green LCD, also provides visual indication of one of the application parameters.
