PAX2A can display input, total, minimum, maximum or setpoints on a 0.7-inch high 6-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 second. The panel meter also features a second display line—with a 0.35-inch high 9-digit green LCD display that can also be programmed for any of the above parameters and accommodates totalizing applications that easily exceed a normal 6-digit display. Plus, a 3-digit programmable custom unit indicator is also available.
The 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 250 VAC or 21.6 to 250 VDC. Built-in Modbus communications in addition to field installable option cards: RS232, RS485, DeviceNet and Profibus allow communications across a multitude of protocols.
"The PAX2A provides maximum application flexibility, allowing users to stock just one meter for numerous applications," said Jeff Thornton, Red Lion Product Manager. "The dual line display delivers an ideal solution for applications that require two parameters to be visualized simultaneously. For example, PAX2A can read a flow rate through a pipeline while totalizing the gallons, or indicate the temperature of an oven while also displaying the setpoint value."
Features that make the PAX2A particularly effective and simple to operate include:
- Universal process inputs: DC current, DC voltage, process signals, resistance, thermocouples or RTDs
- Universal power supply: 50 to 250 VAC or 21.6 to 250 VDC
- Built-in USB port for simple connectivity
- Meter update rate up to 160/second
- Integrated Modbus communications
- Setpoints: dual and quad relay; quad sinking and sourcing
- Retransmitted analog output
- Communications: RS232, RS485, DeviceNet and Profibus
