Process control solutions

The PCD200 series are dual-input, field-programmable digital panel meters that accept two common process inputs, including 4-20mA and process voltage signals, and provide a localized display of sensor data. The customizable display and advanced math functions make it easy to get specific, actionable data in real time.

PCD200 series dual-input process display meters

Model: PCD200 series

The PCD200 series are 1/8 DIN digital panel meters that accept two inputs of either a process current (4-20 mA) or process voltage (0-5V, 1-5V, ±10V) signal. It displays these signals on a dual line, 6-digit display that is available with an optional Sunbright® sunlight readable LEDs. The meter can be customized such that these two inputs are displayed in a variety of ways, including both at the same time with tags or the result of math functions performed on one or both of the inputs. The PCD200 features CE marking, a NEMA 4X front, and AC or DC power options, and can be equipped with up to four internal relays, a 4-20 mA analog output, and Modbus® serial communications. PCD200 meters can be programmed via the front panel pushbuttons or included PC-based software.

Display features

Easy to use, customizable displays

The dual-line display makes the PCD200 easy to set up and program, and all configuration can be done via the front panel. PCD200 series meters have an upper and lower display, each a full 6 digits (-999999 to 999999).

 

The displays can be set up to read input channels (A or B), math function channel C, toggle between A & B, B & C, A & C, A & B & C, toggle between channels A, B, or C & units, the max/min of any of the channels (including math channel C), set points, gross, or net & gross values of channel A or B, or the Modbus input. This allows the meter to show the most relevant variables for the application.

 

Alternation display

Certain options alternate the display information. A single display can show input variable information as well as that channel’s unit or tag. Input and math function channels, gross and net values, and select inputs and the math results may also alternate on a single display.

 

Standard LED and SunBright LED display models

PCD200 meters feature ultra-bright LED displays. Both standard and SunBright models perform well in both indoor and outdoor settings where visibility may be impaired by smoke, fog, dust, or distance. The UV-resistant SunBright display option is even readable in sunlight and ideal for use in outdoor applications.
