Precision Digital PD6400 ProVu Digital Panel Meter
The PD6400 is a member of the ProVu series of 1/8 DIN (92 x 45 mm) digital panel meters that accepts a high voltage (0-300 VAC/VDC) and high current (0-5 AAC/ADC) input simultaneously. It is ideal for measuring direct voltage and current or the output from voltage shunts and current transformers. It displays the input on a dual-line, 6-digit display that is available with optional Sunbright® sunlight readable LEDs. The high voltage and current meter can be customized to display the voltage on one line and the current on the other or to display the apparent power by multiplying the two inputs. Like all ProVu meters, the PD6400 AC/DC voltage and current meter 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® RTU serial communications.

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.
