The PAX2A features a universal signal input that accepts DC current, DC voltage, process signals, thermocouples and RTD temperature sensor inputs. The universal power supply can accept 50 to 250 VAC or 21.6 to 250 DC power. The PAX2A provides the maximum in application flexibility, allowing for a reduction in the number of meters that need to be stocked.
Additional features include a built-in USB programming port, easy PAX-style programming, meter update rates at 160 updates/second, and built-in standard communication using Modbus protocol. Add to all of this access to the wide variety of PAX option cards and one has the most flexible meter in the world. The field installable cards provide dual and quad relay outputs, retransmitted analog out and communications, including RS232, RS485, DeviceNet and Profibus.
The latest release of Crimson 2 software now includes the new PAX2A panel meter. In addition to the easy front panel key programming of the PAX2A, you can now program the meter with simple mouse clicks and drop down menus via the built-in USB port.
Eight simple programming windows step you through various parameters such as input set-up, display format, and output control, just to name a few. The program file can be saved on a computer allowing for later recall. You can also extract an existing program from a meter and save it. The program can then be downloaded to other meters, making duplicate setups a breeze.
