Traditional methods of configuration are still possible, by frontal push buttons, PC configuration & standard pre-loaded mini USB flashcard but Smartphone configuration sets a new standard in digital panel meter technology.

 

Digital panel meters with Android smart phone configuration.

Pixsys STR  model digital panel meters are setting new standards in panel meter technology.

There are 3 models in the range.  The STR551 which is a universal analog input which includes inputs such as thermocouple, RTD, NTC thermistor, 4-20mA, 0-10V, mV and potentiometer.

The STR561 is a strain gauge input version which provides the bridge excitation & is used for weighing applications.

Both these models have a choice of numeric and  bargraph, numeric only or trend as primary display.  The display orientation can be vertical or horizontal this is programmed in the menu.

Hardware features such as 2 relay outputs, 2 digital inputs, 4-20mA re transmission, Modbus RTU are also standard.

STR  panel meter

The last panel meter in the range is the Model STR571.  This is a Modbus RTU only digital panel meter.  It has 2 ports, one is a master and one is a slave.  Up to 8 registers can be managed via read or write and 1 to 4 can be displayed per page depending on how large you would like the digits to be.  The STR571 has 2 alarm relays which can be assigned to individual or all registers.  There is also a potentiometer input should the user require simple pot rotation set point adjustment, rather than set point entry via keypad

All STR panel meter  models have to unique feature of being smart phone programmable via NFC.  Using the MyPixsys app available from Google Play, simply touch the rear of the smart phone onto the bezel of the panel meter to read device parameters, edit then touch to download.  A very fast method which eliminates possibility for errors.

Supply voltage is a wide ranging 24 to 240 VAC/DC.

Blueline temperature controller sets new standards

Ucontrol Pty Ltd are pleased to announce the launch of the new Blueline temperature controller and process controller range from Pixsys.

The Blue line range is a 48 x 48 DIN temperature controller which provides a number of innovative features and advanced functions which is unique for a controller in this low price bracket.

Set up of the controller can be performed in 4 ways.  It can be done by the frontal keypad via the configuration menu which is simple to interpret & displayed in  English abbreviated prompts.

temperature-controller-Modbus
The quickest and most convenient method is by Android smart phone utilizing the Pixsys App available free of charge from Google play.  The connection is wireless via NFC, simply touch the controller front bezel with back of the phone to read, write or clone the set up.

PC Connection via mini USB is also available using free labsoftview software.  The USB port can also accept a mini USB flash card where settings can be stored and downloaded to the controller.

Helpful  for both for installation engineer and operator include the new scrolling help features.

As standard the Blueline temperature controller accepts universal inputs which include 4-20mA, 0-10V, R,S,T,N,J & K type thermocouple, PT100, PT1000, mV and potentiometer inputs.  If using 4-20mA loops the input can be active or passive and powered by the on board transmitter power supply.

Even in the most basic model, most of the common outputs are supported in one part number such as 0-10V, 4-20mA, relay, SSR & even servo valve drive for modulating motors.

This is in addition to standard features such as multiple relay alarms outputs, digital inputs & wide ranging power supply 24-240 VAC/DC.

4-20mA temperature controller

Optional Modbus RTU via the RS485 port is available in the 244-23ABC-T temperature controller.  A second analogue input, second PID loop and second analogue output are available allowing for advanced features such as dual loop PID control, cascade loop control, remote setpoint input, output & ratio control.

New Budget Priced Digital Panel Meter

The NEW N24 digital panel meter is designed for measurement of d.c. voltage or current,  temperature sensors through Pt100 resistance devices, type J, K thermocouples, a.c. voltage and current.
The N24 has a96 x 48 DIN impact resistant moulded bezel which is rated to IP65, LED digit height is a large 20 mm digit making viewing distance possible from up to 10 metres
The input type is fixed, but parameters programmable by PC software using PD14 programmer are:
decimal point selection, measurement averaging time,  input scale to display range, automatic or manual compensation: cold juncti on
temperature for measurement with thermocouples
or wire resistance for measurement with Pt100 (N24T).

Available 230V AC or 24VDC with 24V transmitter power supply.
