The Precision Digital PD6001 is a member of the ProVu® series of 1/8 DIN digital panel meters specifically designed to display level in feet and inches, instead of the usual decimal format. The PD6001 accepts a 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 volume in gallons or liters. Like all ProVu meters, the PD6001 includes UL / C-UL listing and CE marking, a NEMA 4X front, and AC or DC power options. ProVu meters can be equipped with up to four internal relays, a 4-20 mA output and Modbus® serial communications. The PD6001 includes a 24 VDC power supply to drive the transmitter and can be programmed via the front panel pushbuttons or free MeterView® Pro software.

Signal Input Conditioning
Non-linear input signals can be linearized with the ProVu’s simple to use round horizontal tank linearizer of the ProVu’s powerful general-purpose linearizer.
Round Horizontal Tank Signal Input Conditioner
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 ProVu 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.
- Panel cutout required: 1.772″ x 3.622″ (45mm x 92mm)
- Panel thickness: 0.040 – 0.250″ (1.0mm – 6.4mm)
- Mounting brackets lock in place for easy mounting
- Clearance: Allow 6″ (152 mm) behind the panel
MeterView® Pro Software
MeterView® 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:
- Go to the Diagnostics menu () and press Enter button.
- Press Up arrow button and scroll to Information menu (Info).
- 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.
- The meter returns to Run Mode after displaying all the settings.
