Digital panel meters
Precision Digital's PD765 and PD8-765 Trident Series Digital Panel Meters are adjustable to lighting conditions and designed to handle level, flow rate, temperature, and pressure applications.
Precision Digital's PD765 Trident Series Digital Panel Meter is a process meter that features two relays, a 4-20mA analog output, and a 24 Vdc power supply all in one meter. It is housed in a shallow, 3.6-inch depth, 1/8 DIN enclosure that features a NEMA 4X front panel. Two display heights are available: the Trident 0.56-inch (14.2 mm) display, and the Trident X2 1.2-inch (30.5 mm) display.
Each display is adjustable to lighting conditions, including direct sunlight. This allows the meter to easily be read from distances up to 30 feet. For hazardous area applications, the model PD8-765 integrates all the Trident meter functions into an explosion-proof, die-cast aluminum enclosure with through-glass SafeTouch buttons and worldwide agency approvals.
The Trident panel meters are designed to handle a wide range of level, flow rate, temperature, and pressure applications. They can be field programmed to accept process voltage (0-5V, 1-5V, etc) and current (4-20 mA) inputs, 100 Ohm RTDs, and the four most common thermocouples: J, K, T, and E.
The Trident meters feature a variety of options: two relays, a 4-20 mA output, 24 VDC transmitter supply, and serial communication with Modbus RTUprotocol. The 4-20 mA output option converts the meter into a transmitterwith a digital display, making it well suited for temperature applications.
All functions can be set up from the PD765 front panel or from a PC running Precision Digital's free MeterView software. Configuration settings can besaved to a file for reporting or for programming other meters. Trident panel meters can also be set up using National Instruments' LabVIEW software.
The PD765 is housed in a shallow-depth case that is designed for easy installation. The PD8-765 panel meter is housed in a die-cast aluminum explosion-proof enclosure.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
