These instrinsically safe and nonincendive, loop-powered 1/8 DIN flow rate/totalizers can be installed virtually anywhere to provide convenient and informative displays of flow rate and total from a 4-20 mA signal. One of the most convenient features of these instruments is their ability to display both flow rate and total at the same time. For instance, flow rate is typically displayed on the 5-digit alphanumeric top line and flow total or grand total is typically displayed on the 8-digit alphanumeric bottom line.

Both of these lines use 14-segment, alphanumeric characters for clear indication of tags, units or alarm messages. Further enhancing the display on these instruments is a 20-segment bargraph available on the PD6624/6 that also includes a numeric value of the percentage the bargraph represents.

These flow rate/totalizers can be installed virtually anywhere because they get their power from the 4-20 mA loop and therefore require no separate power source. And they only drop 1.5 V (4.7 V with backlight), so they add very little burden to the loop. Additional features that allow these instruments to be installed virtually anywhere include a NEMA 4X, IP65 front panel, an operating temperature range of -40 to 158°F (-40 to 70°C), conformally coated PCBs, and a backlit LCD that can be read in bright sunlight or dimly lit areas. Finally, they are intrinsically safe and nonincendive, so they can be installed in hazardous areas.

Free, PC-based, software that connects to the meter via a micro USB cable is available for programming and setup of the meters. In addition, the meter can be programmed, setup and operated via the four front panel buttons. Three of these buttons can be used as function keys. In addition, a digital input is standard and is particularly useful for remote reset of the total or to start/stop a timer/batch.

All models come equipped with two open collector outputs and are available with two solid state relays and 4-20 mA analog output options. The open collector outputs are useful for alarm indication or sending a pulse to indicate when a certain amount of total has been accumulated. The relays can be programmed for alarm indication, on/off control, sample taking, or simple batch control.
