Dual rate meter

Dual rate meter monitors two signal inputs at once and performs application-specific calculations.

Red Lion PAXDR Dual Rate Meter
The PAXDR dual rate meter provides real-time viewing of dual

input rates paired with sophisticated math functions to measure and display the

sum, difference, ratio, draw or percentage of total between the two rates. The

meter is a 5-digit dual rate indicator and 6-digit dual totalizer that monitors

mission-critical factors such as inflow and outflow, unwind and rewind wire tension,

feed and tension roll speed and other types of production rates.

The meter does not require complex programming that would

otherwise be required to perform application-specific calculations. Users can

select the desired scale for each of the two signal inputs using the meter’s programmable

function keys, with independent scaling provided for A and B totalizers. Also,

10-point scaling for both input rates is provided for challenging non-linear


Field-installable plug-in option cards provide features such

as four setpoint outputs, assigned to any rate or totalizer value and

configured to suit varying control and alarm requirements; retransmitted analog

output, scaled independently of the input range; and communication and bus

capabilities such as RS-232, RS-485, Modbus, DeviceNet and Profibus-DP.
