The ProtEX-F&I PD6801 is one of Precision Digital’s most advanced and feature-packed explosion-proof, loop-powered indicators explicitly designed for level applications that require a feet & inches display. The PD6801 can indicate up to 699 feet, 11 and 15/16 (or 7/8) inches. Like all ProtEX products, the PD6801 explosion-proof level indicator carries FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approvals for use in hazardous areas. It features a dual-line display that can be easily scaled in the field for any 4-20 mA analog input. Two features that make the PD6801 stand out are its wide viewing angle display and SafeTouch® through-glass buttons. These buttons allow the PD6801 tank-side indicator to be programmed and operated through the glass, thus eliminating the need to remove the cover in a hazardous area.
Display: Feet & Inches display: 0.60″ (15.2 mm) high, 0 to 699 FT – 11 15/16 IN with 1/16 or 1/8 fraction display. Lower 7-digit display: 0.4″ (10.2 mm) high, 14-segment alphanumeric characters, display tag, volume 0 to 9999999, and/or 0-100 percent. Tank Level Indicator: 20 segments, F (Full) and E (Empty) Alarm Indication: HI and LO; Backlight: White, loop or DC powered Display Assignment: Lower display may be assigned to custom unit or tag, volume, volume and tag, percent height, percent height and tag, or off. Display Update Rate: Ambient > -25°C: 2 Updates/Second Ambient < -25°C: 1 Update/5 Seconds Externally Powered Backlight: Voltage Range: 9-36 VDC
Overrange and Underrange: Level display flashes to 699 FT 11 15/16 IN Volume display flashes 9999999 if overrange, -999999 if underrange. Programming Method: Four SafeTouch through-glass buttons when cover is installed. Four internal pushbuttons when cover is removed. Noise Filter: Programmable low (LO), medium (MED), high (HI), or off (OFF) Recalibration: Recalibration is recommended at least every 12 months. Password: Programmable password restricts modification of settings. Nonvolatile Memory: All programmed settings are stored in non-volatile memory for a minimum of ten years if power is lost.
