Product short description:
  • Loop-powered Process Meter
  • 4-20mA input/output
  • Solid-state relays
  • Non-incendive, intrinsically safe

These loop-powered 1/8 DIN digital panel meters provide a convenient and informative display of any 4-20mA signal. A dual line display shows the process value on the top line and the units or a tag on the bottom line. Alternatively, you can display the input in one scale on the top line (e.g. height) and another scale on the bottom (e.g. volume).

VPM2000 Vertu® Series Loop-Powered Panel Meter Description

Acromag Vertu® VPM2000 loop-powered 1/8 DIN digital panel meters provide a convenient and informative display of any 4-20mA signal. A dual line display shows the process value on the top line and the units or a tag on the bottom line.

Alternatively, you can display the input in one scale on the top line (e.g. height) and another scale on the bottom (e.g. volume). A bar graph option indicates the percentage the value represents.

All models include a digital input and two open collector outputs. For signal isolator and alarm trip applications, model options add two solid state relays or 4-20mA analog output. The digital input enables remote reset or triggering of alarms.

Open collector outputs are useful for alarm indication or pulse output. Relays support alarm activation, on/off control, and pump alternation functions.

Installation is greatly simplified as the meters acquire power from the 4-20mA loop and therefore require no separate power source. A low voltage drop adds very little burden to the loop.

The NEMA 4X IP65 panel, conformal-coated PCBs, wide temperature operation, and a backlit LCD enable use in most environments.

Intrinsically safe and non-incendive versions allow installation in hazardous areas.

Setup is fast and easy using the front panel buttons or the free configuration software. A micro USB cable connects the meter to the PC and provides power for software-based programming and saving the file.

The push buttons also serve as programmable function keys to change displays, reset min/max readings, acknowledge alarms, and other uses.

Why Do I Need Electrical Isolation? - 8500988 (Log in to view the file)
Why do we need signal isolation? Acromag is in the business of signal conditioning. We manufacture circuits that amplify, isolate, filter, and convert one signal form to another. Most of these circuits also provide electrical isolation. However, added isolation has a cost. Thus, sometimes customers either question their need for isolation or fail to recognize...
How to Display and Maintain Tank Levels in a Hazardous Area - 8401047
Defining the Problem: A chemical manufacturer has various tanks of substances which it combines to manufacture their product. The tops of these tanks are a UL rated Class 1 Division 2 hazardous area. They use four-wire, non-contact level sensors, and want their operators to be able to read and adjust the tank levels either automatically...
How to Control a Remote Pump for a Natural Gas Pipeline - 8401048
Defining the Problem: A natural gas pipeline has a remote pumping station a mile away and they need to be able to adjust the pumping rate without driving to the site. The pump is controlled by a variable frequency drive. Running control wire is too expensive and also undesirable due to potential surges from lightning...
