Ucontrol Pty Ltd in Australia unveil the first smart phone configurable digital panel meter. The STR551 is a universal input panel meter which includes RTD, thermocouple, 4-20mA, Volts, mV & potentiometer input. This panel meter allows display of PV in numeric, bargraph and trend format, with isolated analogue output, relay outputs and Modbus RTU as standard.
The clever innovation is the quick programming using an Android smart phone. Simply install the app from google play, hold the phone close to the bezel to establish recognition of the device via the NFC function. Select your parameters and hold the phone back near the bezel to transfer the settings. This can also be done without power.
