    Wiring Diagram:

    What sets the Helios apart from other Large Display Meters is its dual line display with super bright LEDs that can be read even in bright sunlight and up to 100 feet away. Based on Precision Digital’s popular line of ProVu® digital panel meters, the Helios can satisfy a wide variety of level, flow, temperature, pressure, & weight applications. It is available with models that accept 4-20 mA, thermocouple, RTD, pulse, strain gauge, AC and DC volts and current, and even Modbus®.

    Go with the Helios PD2-6001 when you prefer to read level in feet and inches instead of the more common decimal format. This unique display will read up to 99 feet, 11 & 15/16s inches on the upper line. The lower line can display a tag or volume, even from non-linear tanks such as round horizontal ones. The PD2-6001 makes a great outdoor tank side indicator because its display is bright enough to read in direct sunlight and it will operate from -40 to 150°F. The PD2-6001 can also be equipped with a 4-20 mA output as well as four relays that can be used for alarming or controlling applications, including pump alternation control.

    Wall Mounting

    The meter can be mounted to any wall using the four provided mounting holes. Note that the bottom mounting holes are located underneath the front door panel. To mount the meter to a wall, follow these instructions.

    1. Prepare a section of wall approximately 11″ x 13″ (280 mm x 330 mm) for meter mounting by marking with a pencil the mounting holes (shown in the image to the right) on the wall.
    2. Using a drill bit slightly smaller than the girth of the mounting screws, pre-drill holes at the mounting locations previously marked.
    3. Insert mounting screws into the four mounting holes and screw them into the pre-drilled holes. Do not overtighten the mounting screws as it is possible that the enclosure could crack and become damaged.

    Pipe Mounting

    The meter can also be mounted to a pipe using the optional pipe mounting kit (PDA6260). This kit includes two mounting plates, two U-bolts, and the necessary nuts and bolts. To mount the meter to a pipe using the pipe mounting kit accessory, follow these instructions.

    1. Secure the mounting plates to the top and bottom (for vertical pipes) or left and right (for horizontal pipes) of the reverse side of the meter enclosure using the provided fasteners. Do not overtighten the fasteners as it could cause damage to the enclosure.
    2. Using the provided nuts and U-bolts, secure the mounting plates to the pipe enough torque such that the meter cannot be moved up or down (or side to side).

    Applications

    Signal Input Conditioning

    Non-linear input signals can be linearized with the Helios’ simple to use round horizontal tank linearizer or the Helios’ powerful general purpose linearizer.

    8-Point Linearizer for Volume

    Round Horizontal Tank Signal Input Conditioner

    Multi-Pump Alternation

    For pump control applications where 2 or more similar pumps are used to control the level of a tank or a well, it is desirable to have the pumps operate alternately; this prevents excessive wear and overheating of one pump over the lack of use of the others. The Helios can accommodate up to 8 pumps. In the example below, a pair of relays have been set up to alternate every time an on/off pump cycle is completed. Another pair of relays is used for low and high alarms.

    Connections Labeling

     

    The connectors’ label, affixed to the inside of the lower door panel, shows the location of all connectors available with requested configuration.

    MeterView® Pro Software

    MeterView Pro VideoMeterView® Pro software is designed for use with ProVu, ProtEX-MAX, or Helios Series meters and allows users to remotely program, monitor, and datalog using a PC. Remote programming allows for all available meter settings to be programmed through an easy, user-friendly interface. The data acquisition feature allows the user to gather readings from a meter at user-selected intervals and generate charts using common tools like Microsoft® Excel. A linearization setup function is also included. With this utility the user can configure up to 32 linearization points and upload them to the meter. All configuration data can be saved to a file for future use.
    This software is accessible via the onboard USB connection on all Helios large display meters, ProVu panel meters, and ProVu-based ProtEX-MAX explosion-proof meters produced since 6 September 2016 (firmware version 4.0 or higher). In order for meters produced prior to 6 September 2016 (firmware version 3.1 or lower) to establish digital communications with a PC, a serial communications adapter is required. For an RS-232 connection, use a PDA1232 adapter.
    To determine the software version of a meter:

    1. Go to the Diagnostics menu () and press Enter button.
    2. Press Up arrow button and scroll to Information menu (Info).
    3. Press Enter to access the software number (), version (), and serial number () information. Write down the information as it is displayed. Continue pressing Enter until all the information is displayed.
    4. The meter returns to Run Mode after displaying all the settings.
