The 6155A is a 6-digit slave display for use with computers. PLCs, panel meters and other instruments producing serial ASCII outputs to RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485 standards. It is similar in appearance to other NEWPORT® instruments and fits standard 1/8 DIN panel cutouts.

6155A-P 6-Digit Remote DisplayThe 6155A-P is a multipurpose 6-digit slave display for use with PLCs, panel meters and other devices having parallel BCD outputs. It is similar in appearance to other NEWPORT® instruments and fits standard 1/8 DIN panel units. 5, 12, 24 and 48 V logic inputs can be positive or negative logic and accept a variety of signals including open collector PLC outputs. Data can be user formatted for full parallel or bit parallel, character serial in a variety of convenient arrangements.

Display Format
The standard display format is six 14.2 mm high, seven-segment LED digits separated by decimal points: The most significant digit (MSD) may be a negative polarity sign. Serial input options permit the display of some simple messages in addition to the numerical data.

Serial Mode
Serial ASCII coded data is accepted into a differential or single ended line receiver at common Baud rates and up to 15 V level. Data accepted is numeric, plus a simple character set (e.g. °C, Hi, Lo). The 6155A-S can be DIP switch programmed to an individual address number, so that up to 15 displays may share a common data line.
