PD8-6080 ProtEX-MAX Explosion-Proof Modbus Scanner with Dual Analog Inputs


The ProtEX-MAX™ PD8-6080 Super Snooper Modbus® scanner offers all the functionality of the ProVu PD6080 as a fully FM, CSA, ATEX, and IECEx approved explosion-proof product. It is a multi-purpose display and controller capable of scanning up to 16 Modbus process variables and includes dual analog process inputs. The scanner can be programmed as a Modbus RTU master, slave, or snooper. It is the ideal display for Modbus multivariable transmitters or for existing Modbus networks with transmitters in need of a conveniently located display in a hazardous area. The PD8-6080 includes a 24 VDC power supply to drive the transmitter and can be equipped with up to four internal relays and two 4-20 mA outputs. It can be programmed and operated without opening the housing by using the built-in SafeTouch® through-glass buttons.
