Omega StrongSame Quality Product – New Name!
We’re building a stronger, unified brand so we can provide you with the best products in the industry. To do this, the Newport branded products will now be Omega branded starting July 15, 2018. You can expect the same support and quality as always, and of course the same features and specs, just with a new part number and logo. Please refer to Platinum products, MDS8PT Benchtop Meter at for details.

The MDS8PT is a 1/8 DIN size (96 x 48 mm) digital panel meter in a benchtop plastic enclosure featuring the PLATINUM Series color-changing display.

The Pt Series meters feature LED displays that can be programmed to change color between GREEN , AMBER, and RED at any set-point or alarm point. Other options include isolated programmable analog output, serial communications, Modbus® and Ethernet. The universal temperature and process instrument handles 10 common types of thermocouples, thermistors, multiple RTD’s, and several process (DC) voltage and current ranges.
