PAXLA PANEL METER FEATURES BUILT-IN OUTPUTS WITH DUAL SETPOINT CAPABILITY

Description

Red Lion Controls, Inc. announces the PAXLA, an extension of the company’s series of cost-effective PAX Lite panel meters. This versatile meter is the first PAX Lite model featuring control capability by adding two Form C relays capable of switching up to 5 amps. The PAXLA can accept DC current, DC voltage or process input signals, scaling them to a desired readout for a wide range of applications. Plus, the PAXLA is simple to program using its front panel buttons and jumpers.

The PAXLA delivers a bright 5 digit, 0.56 in. high red LED display with programmable scaling and decimal points. In addition, it offers a newly designed universal power supply, accepting 50 to 250 VAC or 21.6 to 250 VDC. In addition a 24 VDC excitation output is available for increased application flexibility. Plus, once front panel programming is complete, the front panel buttons can be disabled through a user input setting.

“The PAX Lite series provides a rugged, reliable solution for basic machines, simple process control, and other applications that require a display-only meter,” said Jeff Thornton, Red Lion product manager. “The new PAXLA adds to this line by adding control capability via the built-in dual relay outputs, optimizing the panel’s capabilities while maintaining a low cost—which clients have come to expect from this line.”

PAXLA meets CE requirements and features a NEMA 4X/IP65 sealed front bezel, providing excellent reliability in harsh industrial environments. In addition, PAXLA features an optional custom unit overlay with backlight, and it offers minimum and maximum display and capture.
