AMALGAMATED Instrument Co (AIC) has announced a multi-input panel mount monitor for temperature measurement applications.
The PM4-RT8 caters for 4 channels of 3-wire RTD or 8 channels of 2-wire RTD temperature sensors. The product can act as an accurate monitor with automatic or manual scrolling of the input channels.
It can act as an alarm system with up to four relays that can be individually assigned and configured. This makes the PM4-RT8 suitable for monitoring several points within a process and alerting should one or more go outside set limits.
The monitor can also be fitted with single or dual analogue retransmission.
The PM4-RT8 monitor is available in several display configurations:
* A 5-digit display - digits are 14.2mm high red LED. The display is equipped with programming keypads and alarm annunciator LEDs.
* A 6-digit display - digits are 14.2mm high red LED. The display is equipped with programming keypads.
* A 20-segment bargraph plus a 5-digit numerical display. The digits are 7.6mm high. This display, too, has programming keypads and alarm annunciator LEDs.
The numerical displays can be set to show the input number (in the far left hand digit OR the far right hand digit) plus thre or four digits for the temperature or can be set to show the value only with no input number.
The 5-digit displays will have three digits plus input number and the 6-digit display will have four digits plus input number.
The bargraph display is ideal when a quick visual check of a temperature range is required.
The PM4-RT8 is easily set up and calibrated and no special tools or test equipment are required.
