Standard Features

  • Choice of 2-1/4", 4", 6" or 8" digit heights
  • Four digits with selectable decimal point
  • Choice of normal or outside viewing brightness
  • Scalable for 4-20 mA, 0-20 mA or 0-10V signals
  • Choice of panel mount, wall mount or suspension mount
  • Choice of 95-264 Vac or 11-30 Vdc power

  • Programmable from front panel
  • Optional two or four 2A relay outputs, analog output, serial I/O

MAGNA Series Temperature Input Large Digit Displays can ordered for an RTD or a thermocouple temperature input. At the time of order, specify the RTD or thermmocouple types (J, K, T E, N, R, S), temperature range, °C or °F, and 1°or 0.1° resolution. These large digit temperature displays use a 4-20 mA process signal conditioner board and a temperature transmitter, which is which can be installed inside the display case of be external. External transmitter mounting allows long 4-20 mA cable runs, and avoids the need for long signal wire runs.

Viewing distances up to 320 feet (100 m) are achieved with oversize digits. 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.

Four digit heights are available:  57 mm (2-1/4"), 102 mm (4.0"), 150 mm (5.9"), and 200 mm (7.9"). Solid segments are used for normal brightness 2.2" and 4.0" digits. Individual 5 mm LED pixels are used for larger digits and outdoor brightness versions. The number of digits is 4. The decimal point is selectable.

Indoor or Outdoor Viewing: MAGNA Series Displays with normal brightness LEDs can be read across an entire plant floor to keep workers informed without leaving their work area. Displays with outdoor brightness LEDs can be read across an industrial yard or swimming pool area, for example to display water temperature. Available mounting options are panel mount, wall mount and suspension mount. Environmental sealing to IP65 (NEMA-4X) is standard.

Options include two or four 2A relays, an analog output, RS232 or RS485 serial data output, and 95-264 Vac or 11-30 Vdc power.

Scaling of the Main Display is provided by built-in front panel switches. The temperature transmitter is scaled separately.
