What sets the Helios apart from other Large Display Meters is its dual line display with super bright LEDs that can be read even in bright sunlight. The dual line display simplifies programming and also makes it possible to display more information. For instance, the upper line can display the process variable and the lower line a tag or a different scale of the input. In a flow application, one line could display flow rate and the other line flow total. Even if you are not installing the Helios outdoors in bright sunlight, you will appreciate its big, clear, bright display that can be seen from up to distances of 100 feet (30 meters).

Go with the Helios PD2-6080 when you have multiple, (up to 16), Modbus registers you want to display on a single large display meter. The PD2-6080 can also accept two 4-20 mA signals. The PD2-6080 can be programmed as a Modbus RTU Master, Slave or Snooper allowing it to work in just about any Modbus application. Typically, the upper line displays the PV and the lower line displays the tag.
