Precision Digital PD6060 is a member of the ProVu series of 1/8 DIN digital panel meters that accepts two inputs of either a process voltage (0-5V, 1-5V, etc.) or process current (4-20 mA) signal. It displays input signals on a dual line, 6-digit display that is available with an optional Sunbright® sunlight readable LEDs. The meter can be customized that these two inputs are displayed in a variety of ways, including both at the same time with tags or the result of math functions performed on one or both of the inputs. The PD6060 includes UL / C-UL listing and CE marking, a NEMA 4X front, and AC or DC power options, hence can also be equipped with up to four internal relays, a 4-20 mA analogue output, and Modbus® serial communications. The Precision Digital PD6060 includes a 24 V DC power supply to drive the transmitters, also can be programmed via the front panel pushbuttons or free MeterView® Pro software via USB.

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 PDA1232 adapter.
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.
