Power up to 12 load cells for large weighing applications.

Precision Digital Corporation has  announced the latest versions of the PD6100 Strain Gauge Meter and the PD8-6100 Explosion-Proof Strain Gauge Meter. Part of the ProVu® and ProtEX® families of digital panel meters, the PD6100 and PD8-6100 are digital strain gauge and load cell meters designed for weight, millivolt, and force measurement applications.

New features include the ability to power up to twelve (12) 350 ohm load cells. Enhanced programming buttons now closely resemble the operation of a typical scale, allowing for zeroing with one button push. The Tare/Reset Tare function enables the meters to compensate for anomalies, such as sludge buildup at the bottom of an empty tank. In addition, the dual-scale function means measurements can be displayed in two different units of measure.

"The PD6100 is the perfect choice for weighing applications in large bins, tanks, or scales, because the meter enables more load cells to be averaged to determine weight, volume, or level," said Jeffrey Peters, President of Precision Digital Corporation. "The PD8-6100’s NEMA 4X/IP68 rating makes it ideal for weighing applications in hazardous or harsh environments."

Both the PD6100 and PD8-6100 feature one-button zeroing of the display, auto-zero adjustment to prevent drift, and highly visible information displays in panel-mounted or rugged, field-mounted enclosures.

The explosion-proof PD8-6100 is rated NEMA 4X/IP68 and carries worldwide agency approvals (FM, CSA, ATEX, IECex, and CE) that allow it to operate in hazardous locations or in the field under the harshest environmental conditions, such as extreme cold.

The PD6100 and PD8-6100 Strain Gauge Meters can perform automatic unit conversions when switching between pre-defined units, such as pounds, kilograms, and tons, without the need for additional scaling. Both meters accept mV input signals up to 300 mV (unipolar) and ±250 mV (bipolar), and are rated for a max current of 350 mA @ 10V.
