PD8-6100 ProtEX-MAX Explosion-Proof Strain Gauge, Load Cell & mV Meter

Brand: Precision Digital Corporation

The ProtEX-MAXTM PD8-6100 offers all the functionality of the ProVu PD6100 as a fully FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approved explosion-proof product.

It accepts strain gauge & load cell inputs and mV signals up to 300 mV (unipolar) and ± 250 mV (bipolar) for weight and force measurement applications.

The PD8-6100 strain gauge meter's dual-line display and powerful dual-scale capability allows the measurement to be displayed in two different units of measure.

Another use for the PD8-6100's dual-lines is to simply display the units of measure on the bottom line.

SafeTouch® through-glass buttons allow for access to zero, tare, and other functions without the need to remove the enclosure cover.

The PD8-6100 includes a 5 or 10 VDC power supply to drive the sensors and can be equipped with four internal relays and two 4-20 mA outputs.
