Display Unit SC-PM and SC-PMD

Panel mount digital display for Schmidt tension sensors. Outputs: analog, current and digital.

User-set MIN and MAX alarm limits with open collector output

Tension indicator for industrial use with many features

CE mark

Special Features

The display unit SC-PM is suitable  to connect sensors with analog output 0 – 1 V DC, the display unit SC-PMD is convenient for sensors without integrated amplifier (output mV/V)

Display unit SC-PM with coloured, backlighted TFT display

3 different display modes
– numeric
– numeric with live bargraph
– numeric with graph (time-tension)

Various output signals are available:
– analog (standard): 0 – 10 V DC
– digital (standard): USB and RS-422
– digital (optional): CAN-Bus (on request)
– current (optional): 4 – 20 mA (instead of 0 – 10 V DC)

User-set MIN and MAX alarms with indication in the TFT display if reading is out of limits

Adjustable electronic damping for better reading when tension fluctuates

Easy calibration to customized material by the operator – zero and gain calibration is required for the connected sensor

Possibility to store 4 different materials curves

Selectable units of measurement: cN, N, daN, g, kg and lb

Menu set-up in English, German, Spanish, Portuguese and French language

Easy operation using keys: menu for configurating the device (alarm limits, damping, engineering units, tension range, material curve)

Standard Features

Panel mounted digital display, (1/8 DIN cutout – 92 x 44 mm)

Required power supply +15…24 V DC (regulated)

The instrument provides  the required power for the connected sensor

CE certified with sensor connected
