New process panel meters introduced


High quality universal process panel meters featuring multicolour, negative liquid crystal five digit and thirty one segment bargraph displays which are visible in all lighting conditions from bright sunlight to total darkness. The display colour is fully adjustable and can be linked to the meter's alarm status providing operators with a very conspicuous alarm warning. The meters have process current, voltage and resistance thermometer inputs and are available for use with a low voltage dc or mains power supply.

The rugged A90-SS has a stainless steel enclosure and a toughened glass window suitable for marine applications or for installation in areas where the front of the meter may be impacted.

All models are available from stock.




New Timer or Clocks for field or panel mounting in safe or hazardous areas


Superseding our existing Timers and Clocks, this new range includes compact field mounting and stainless steel panel mounting instruments.


New Timer or Clocks for field or panel mounting in safe or hazardous areas

  • Configured as a:
        Timer - measures elapsed time between
        external events or controls external events.
        Clock - displays local time and controls external
        equipment.
  • Robust enclosures, including stainless steel panel mounting instrument.
  • Models:
        One and two input, externally powered
        Field and panel mounting
  • Certifications:
        Intrinsically safe Ex ia for Zones 0, 1, 2, 20, 21, & 22
        Ex nA & Ex tc for Zone 2 & 22 applications
        General purpose for use in safe area
  • Accessories:
        Backlight
        Isolated dual control outputs
        Pipe mounting kits
        Scale and tagging
  • Three year guarantee
  • Go to our New Timer or Clocks for field or panel mounting in safe or hazardous areas page.

These versatile instruments can be configured on-site as a Timer or as a Clock, or can be supplied configured to customer's requirements for no additional charge. As a Timer they can measure and display the elapsed time between external events using sensors connected to one or two inputs. Optional dual control outputs enable the instrument to control external devices such as opening a valve for a fixed time. Control cycles can be repeated continuously or a specified number of times.

When configured as a Clock the instruments display local time in twelve or twenty four hour format and can be externally synchronised. Optional control outputs enable two external devices to be turned on and off at pre-set times twice in each twenty four hour period.

All models are available from stock.




New Tachometers for field or panel mounting in safe or hazardous areas


Replacing our existing tachometers, this new range includes compact field mounting and stainless steel panel mounting instruments.


New Tachometers for field or panel mounting in safe or hazardous areas

  • Separate easy to read speed and run-time displays
  • Field and panel mounting models
  • Rugged enclosures, including stainless steel panel mounting instrument.
  • Will function with wide range of sensors
  • Certifications:
        Intrinsically safe Ex ia for Zones 0, 1, 2, 20, 21, & 22
        Ex nA & Ex tc for Zone 2 & 22 applications
        General purpose for use in safe area
  • Accessories:
        Backlight
        Isolated dual alarms
        Isolated pulse & 4/20mA outputs
        Pipe mounting kits
        Scale and tagging
  • Three year guarantee
     
  • Go to our New Tachometers for field or panel mounting in safe or hazardous areas page.

This range of tachometers can display speed in engineering units from almost any pulse output sensor such as a proximity detector. To simplify maintenance they can also display the run-time of the monitored machinery. Parameters are easy to adjust on-site and models are available for installation in most safe and hazardous areas. Instruments can be supplied ready to install with customer specified configuration, scale and tag marking.

All models are available from stock.




One and two input third generation Counters introduced


Superseding our existing well established range of Counters, these new 'E' panel mounting externally powered instruments feature:


NEW One and two input third generation Counters

  • International Ex ia intrinsic safety certification
  • Ex nA & Ex tc certification allowing installation in Zones 2 or 22 without Zener barriers or galvanic isolators.
  • Two input Counters that can display the sum or difference of the inputs, and can also decode the output from a quadrature encoder to display position, direction and speed of a shaft or cable.
  • Rugged stainless steel model certified for installation in an Ex e, Ex n, Ex p or Ex t panel enclosure without invalidating certification of the panel enclosure.
  • Synchronous retransmission of input pulse
  • General purpose models for safe area applications
  • Field mounting Counters are now also available
     
  • Go to our One and two input third generation Counters page.

These new Counters can simultaneously display the total number of pulses received and the pulse rate in the same or different engineering units. An optional internally powered green backlight enhances daylight viewing and allows the Counter to be read when installed in a poorly illuminated area. Instruments are easy to configure on-site, but can be supplied with user specified configuration and printed scale card for no additional charge.

All models are available from stock.




Third generation panel mounting Rate Totalisers introduced


Incorporating the functions that have been requested by users of our previous ranges, these new panel mounting externally powered Rate Totalisers feature:


New panel mounting Rate Totalisers

  • International intrinsic safety certification
  • Ex nA & Ex tc certified instruments for use in Zone 2 or 22 without Zener barriers or galvanic isolators.
  • Rugged Rate Totaliser in stainless steel enclosure certified for installation in Ex e, Ex n, Ex p or Ex t panel enclosures without invalidating certification of the enclosure.
  • Two input models which can display sum or difference of the inputs.
  • Small 96 x 48mm instruments
  • Lineariser
  • Synchronous retransmitted pulse output
  • Complementary general purpose models
     
  • Go to our New panel mounting Rate Totalisers page.

All the new models simultaneously display total flow and rate of flow in the same or in different engineering units, and an optional internally powered backlight is available for installations in poorly illuminated areas. All parameters are easy to adjust on-site and the instruments are supported by comprehensive documentation, if required Rate Totalisers can be supplied ready to install with customer specified configuration and units of measurement for no additional charge.

All models are available from stock.
