Universal Transmitter / Alarm with Display VPM3000 Video
VPM3000 Vertu® Series Digital Panel Meters
Acromag VPM3000 Vertu digital panel meters are among the most versatile on the market and able to operate as both a transmitter and/or alarm to satisfy a wide variety of process and temperature applications. The VPM3000 is field-programmable to accept many inputs including process voltage, process current, Platinum RTDs, and the four most common thermocouples.
The VPM3000 displays are easy to set up and install. Units are configurable using the front-panel pushbuttons, free Windows software, or a copy function from other units. Models are available for operation from 85-265V AC or 12-36V DC power sources. AC units can provide single or dual isolated 24V DC supplies to power a 4-20mA transmitter or other instruments. A shallow-depth 1/8 DIN enclosure with a NEMA 4X front panel simplifies installation. UL/cUL listing meets industrial control equipment safety requirements.
More Features of the VPM3000
One of the VPM3000 panel meter’s most useful features is its ability to provide 24V DC to power a transmitter’s 4-20mA signal. Two relays and isolated 4-20mA output options increase the utility of the display. The relays can be used for limit alarms or control applications. The 4-20mA output provides isolated retransmission of the input signal; especially useful for temperature inputs like thermocouples and RTDs without an additional signal conditioner.
A shallow-depth, 1/8 DIN enclosure features a NEMA 4X front panel and convenient mounting hardware. There are two power options: either 85 to 265V AC or 12 to 36V DC. AC powered versions can provide 24V DC to power a transmitter or other instruments. Programming and setup are very easy with either the four front-panel pushbuttons, the free configuration software or using the Copy function.
Easy reading from distances of up to 30 feet, as a result of extra-large display numerals that are 1.2” (30.5 mm) high. The display intensity is also adjustable to compensate for various lighting conditions, including direct sunlight.
