PD8-6080 ProtEX-MAX Explosion-Proof Modbus Scanner with Dual Analog Inputs

Brand: Precision Digital Corporation

The ProtEX-MAX™ PD8-6080 Super Snooper Modbus® scanner offers all the functionality of the ProVu PD6080 as a fully FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approved explosion-proof product.

It is a multi-purpose display and controller capable of scanning up to 16 Modbus process variables and includes dual analog process inputs.

The scanner can be programmed as a Modbus RTU master, slave, or snooper.

It is the ideal display for Modbus multivariable transmitters or for existing Modbus networks with transmitters in need of a conveniently located display in a hazardous area.

The PD8-6080 includes a 24 VDC power supply to drive the transmitter and can be equipped with four internal relays and two 4-20 mA outputs.

It can be programmed and operated without opening the housing by using the built-in SafeTouch® through-glass buttons.
