The NEWPORT® MDSSi8 is a 1/8 DIN size (96 x 48 mm) Digital Panel Meter in a rugged benchtop metal enclosure 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, and RED at any set point or alarm point. Other options include isolated programmable analog output, serial communications, Modbus and Ethernet.
The UNIVERSAL TEMPERATURE & PROCESS instrument model "i" handles ten common types of thermocouples, multiple RTD’s, and several Process (DC) Voltage and Current ranges.
