The Vantageview PD6730X is a plastic, field-mounted, RS485 serial input Modbus® RTU scanner capable of scanning up to 16 Modbus variables and displaying them on an easy-to-read, dual-line, LCD display. It can be programmed as a Modbus RTU master, slave, or snooper. The PD6730X is available in two upper display line configurations: 5-digit decimal display and feet & inches display with bar graph. The lower line is the same for both versions and consists of seven alphanumeric characters. Two features that really make the PD6730X stand out are its wide viewing angle display and SafeTouch® through-window buttons. These buttons allow the PD6730X to be programmed and operated through the cover window, thus eliminating the need to remove the cover in dirty or wet environments.

Recalibration Calibrated at the factory to read frequency in Hz. No recalibration required.
Password Menu Options Three programmable password selections can be used for the following: restrict modification of settings, prevent resetting the total or grand total without the password, or permanently lock out the ability to change or reset the grand total or any grand total related settings(making a non-resettable grand total).
Pass: Restricts modifications of programmed settings to require re-entering the password to make changes.
