May 14, 2013 – Holliston, MA - Precision Digital, global leader in digital panel meters and control instrumentation, today announced the newest version of the Trident Series Digital Panel Meters. The model PD765 is a versatile process meter that now features two relays, a 4-20mA analog output, and a 24 Vdc power supply all in one meter. It is housed in a shallow, 3.6-inch depth, 1/8 DIN enclosure that features a NEMA 4X front panel. Two display heights are available: the Trident 0.56-inch (14.2 mm) display, and the Trident X2 1.2-inch (30.5 mm) display, the largest in the industry. Each display is adjustable to lighting conditions, including direct sunlight. This allows the meter to easily be read from distances up to 30 feet. For hazardous area applications, the model PD8-765 integrates all the Trident meter functions into an explosion-proof, die-cast aluminum enclosure with through-glass SafeTouch buttons and worldwide agency approvals.

The Trident panel meters are designed to handle a wide range of level, flow rate, temperature, and pressure applications. They can be field programmed to accept process voltage (0-5V, 1-5V, etc) and current (4-20 mA) inputs, 100 Ohm RTDs, and the four most common thermocouples: J, K, T, and E. Process inputs can be scaled for virtually any engineering units. Temperature inputs can be programmed to display in degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius; the type K thermocouple can display up to 2300 °F.

The Trident meters feature a variety of options: two relays, a 4-20 mA output, 24 VDC transmitter supply, and serial communication with Modbus® RTU protocol. The 4-20 mA output option converts the meter into a transmitter with a digital display, making it well suited for temperature applications.

All functions can be set up from the PD765 front panel or from a PC running Precision Digital's free MeterView® software. Configuration settings can be aved to a file for reporting or for programming other meters. Trident panel meters can also be set up using National Instruments' LabVIEW™ software.

The PD765 is housed in a shallow-depth case that is designed for easy installation and servicing. Plastic, stainless steel, and painted steel NEMA 4X enclosures are available for up to 10 Trident meters. The PD8-765 panel meter is housed in a die-cast aluminum explosion-proof enclosure.
