The NEWPORT® i8 is a 1/8 DIN size [96 x 48 mm (3.7 x 1.9")] digital panel meter featuring the big iSeries color-changing display. The digits are twice the size of typical 1/8 DIN panel meters. The iSeries meters feature the only LED displays that can be programmed to change color between GREEN, AMBER, or RED at any setpoint or alarm point. The "i8" model is available as an extremely accurate programmable digital panel meter with no outputs or with dual outputs for controlling or alarming functions. Other options include isolated programmable analog output, serial communications, Modbus and Ethernet. The user can easily program the i8 for any control or alarming requirement from simple on/off to full autotune PID with a choice of form C SPDT relays, solid state relays, DC pulse, and analog (voltage and current) outputs.

Fully isolated analog output for retransmission of the process value is available in addition to the control and alarm relays (specify model i8A33).

The i8 covers a broad selection of transducer and transmitter inputs with 2 input models.

The universal temperature and process instrument (i models) handles 10 common types of thermocouples, multiple RTDs, and several process (DC) voltage and current ranges. This model also features built-in excitation, 24 Vdc @ 25 mA. With its wide choice of signal inputs, this model is an excellent choice for measuring or controlling temperature with a thermocouple, RTD, or 4 to 20 mA transmitter.

The strain and process instruments (iS models) measure inputs from load cells, pressure transducers, and most any strain gage sensor as well as process voltage and current ranges. The iS has built-in 5 or 10 Vdc excitation for bridge transducers, 5 Vdc @ 40 mA or 10 Vdc @ 60 mA (any excitation voltage between 5 and 24 Vdc is available by special order). This iS model supports 4- and 6-wire bridge configurations, ratiometric and non-ratiometric measurements.

The iS features fast and easy "in process" calibration/scaling of the signal inputs to any engineering units. This model also features 10-point linearization which allows the user to linearize the signal input from extremely nonlinear transducers of all kinds.
