MAGNA large-digit temperature displays can be ordered for four RTD types (DIN Pt100, ANSI Pt100, Ni120 nickel RTD, Cu10 copper RTD) or for seven thermocouple types (J, K, T, E, N, R, S). Four red LED digits show temperatures in °C or °F with 1° or 0.1° resolution. Accuracy is excellent, as shown under Specifications.
Viewing distances up to 100 m (320 ft) are achieved with large digits for reading across a plant floor or an outdoor yard. Four digit heights are available as standard: 57 mm (2-1/4"), 102 mm (4.0"), 150 mm (5.9"), and 200 mm (7.9"). A rule of thumb is that viewing distance in feet is 40 times digit height in inches, or in metric terms, that viewing distance in meters is digit height in millimeters divided by 2. Segmented digits are used for normal brightness 2-1/4” and 4.0" digits. Individual 5 mm LED pixels are used for larger digits and for outdoor brightness versions.
The MAGNA temperature display includes a built-in 4-20 mA process signal conditioner board and an external Laureate temperature transmitter with a scalable 4-20 mA process signal output.
Use of an external transmitter allows long 4-20 mA cable runs while keeping RTD or thermocouple leads short. The main dislay unit and external transmitter are sold as a calibrated system.
Standard outputs that come with the Laureate transmitter in additon to the 4-20 mA analog output are two 120 mA solid state relays and a serial data output which can be set to RS232 or RS485. These outputs do not need to be used. The transmitter comes programmed for a temperature range specified at the time of order. It can be reprogrammed by means of a PC running Laurel’s free Instrument Setup (IS) software and a cable interface consisting of cables CBL02 and CBL04.
Environmental sealing to IP65 (NEMA-4X) is standard for the display unit. Electrical connections are via water-tight compression glands. Outdoor LED brigthness is optional, as is a built-in heater for outdoor operation down to -25°C (-13°F). Mounting options are panel mount, wall mount or suspension mount.
A Laureate RTD or thermocouple transmitter can be DIN rail mounted outside of the display housing.

North American Orders. Laurel does not sell factory-direct in the USA or Canada. Online sales orders are filled through distribution. During the ordering process, you will have the chance to select an authorized Laurel distributor, or you can ask Laurel to refer you to a distributor. The distributor will then contact you to quote shipping, tax and duty (where applicable), and arrange for payment.
International Orders. If your ship-to address indicates that you are outside of the USA or Canada and Laurel has a distributor in your country, we will forward your order to that distributor for follow-up. If Laurel does not have a distributor in your country, we will email you an order acknowledgment and a pro forma invoice which states the product price, shipping charges, and wire transfer information, which includes a $25 bank wire transfer fee.
