    Precision Digital ProtEX-MAX™ PD8-6001 explosion-proof level indicator offers all the functionality of the ProVu PD6001 as a fully ATEXIECExFM, and CSA approve’s explosion-proof product. ProtEX-MAX PD8-6001 is specifically designed to display level in feet & inches, instead of the usual decimal format. The meter accepts input like process current (4-20 mA) or process voltage (0-5V, 1-5V, etc.) signal and displays that signal on a dual-line display with convenient feet and inches designations on the upper line. 

    The upper display can even read fractions of an inch in 8ths or 16ths. The lower line can be used to indicate a tag or to display the input in another scale, such as the volume in gallons or liters. The PD8-6001 includes a 24 VDC power supply to drive the transmitter and can be equipped with up to four internal relays and a 4-20 mA output. It can be programmed and operated without opening the housing by using the built-in SafeTouch® through-glass buttons or the RS485 serial communication port with free Modbus® protocol.

    Quick Overview

    • Input: 0-20 mA, 4-20 mA; ±10 VDC
      (0-5, 1-5, 0-10 V); Modbus PV (slave)

    Applications

    Signal Input Conditioning

    Non-linear input signals can be linearized with the ProtEX-MAX’s simple to use round horizontal tank linearizer or the 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 ProtEX-MAX 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.

    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 PDA1232adapter.
    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.
