The ProtEX-MAX™ PD8-6300 offers all the functionality of the ProVu PD6300 as a fully FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approved explosion-proof product. It is specifically designed to display flow rate and total from a pulse output (NPN, PNP, TTL, switch contact, sine wave, etc.) flowmeter. It displays that signal on a dual-line, 6-digit Sunbright sunlight readable display. Flow rate is typically displayed on the upper line and the cumulative total is displayed on the lower line. The total overflow feature allows up to a 9-digit total and grand total to be displayed. The PD8-6300 includes a 24 VDC power supply to drive the flowmeter and can be equipped with up to four internal relays and a 4-20 mA analog output. It can be programmed and operated without opening the housing by using the built-in SafeTouch® through-glass buttons or the RS485 serial communication port with free Modbus® protocol.

                    

 Quick Overview

• Input: Pulse, open collector, NPN, PNP, TTL, switch contact, sine wave (coil), square wave; Modbus PV (slave)
• Display: Dual-line 6-digit, 0.60" (15 mm) & 0.46" (12 mm))
• Case: Smooth die-cast aluminum explosion-proof)
• Power: 85-265 VAC or 12-24 VDC option)
• Operating Temperature: -40 to 65°C)

• SunBright Display Standard
• Displays rate and total simultaneously)
• 5, 10, or 24 VDC flowmeter power supply)
• Gate function for rate display of slow pulse rates)
• 4-20 mA output option converts the pulse input to an isolated 4-20 mA output)
• SafeTouch through-glass button programming)
• Modbus RS-485 serial communications)
• Flanges for wall or pipe mounting)
• Isolated 24 VDC @ 25 mA transmitter power supply)
• Onboard USB and MeterView® Pro programming software

Display Upper display: 0.60" (15 mm) high. Lower display: 0.46" (12 mm) high. Both are 6 digits (-99999 to 999999), red LEDs.

Display Update Rate 5/second (200 ms)
Over Range Display flashes 999999
Under Range Display flashes -99999
Display Assignment The upper and lower displays may be assigned to rate, total, grand total, alternate (rate/total, rate/grand total, rate/units, total/units, and grand total/units), max/min, units (lower display only), set points, or Modbus input. Additional displays are available if parameter total is off, abd parameter d-SCAL is on: gross, alternating gross/net, PV1, PV2, and PCT (refer to PD6000 instruction manual).
Programming Methods Four through-glass SafeTouch buttons, four mechanical buttons behind glass, digital inputs, PC and MeterView Pro software, or Modbus registers..
F4 Digital Input Contacts 3.3 VDC on contact. Connect normally open contacts across F4 to COM.
F4 Digital Input Logic Levels Logic High: 3 to 5 VDC; Logic Low: 0 to 1.25 VDC
Noise Filter Programmable from 2 to 199 (0 will disable filter)
Filter Bypass Programmable from 0.1 to 99.9% of calibrated span
Recalibration All ranges are calibrated at the factory. Recalibration is recommended at least every 12 months.
Max/Min Display Max (Peak) / min (Valley) readings reached by the process are stored until reset by the user or until power to the meter is cycled.
Password Three programmable passwords restrict modification of programmed settings and two prevent resetting the totals.
Non-Volatile Memory All programmed settings are stored in non-volatile memory for a minimum of ten years if power is lost.
