The PROVU® PD6060 is a multipurpose, easy to use digital dual-input process meter
ideal for level, flow rate, temperature transmitter, or pressure transmitter applications.
It accepts current and voltage signals (e.g. 4-20 mA, 0-10 V). Various math functions
may be applied to the inputs including addition, difference, absolute difference,
average, weighted average, multiplication, division, minimum, maximum, draw, ratio,
and concentration. This is in addition to the signal input conditioning functions (linear,
square root, programmable exponent, or round horizontal tank calculations).
The displays, relays, and the analog output may be assigned to input channels A or B,
or math result channel C.
Three of the front panel buttons can be custom-programmed for a specific operation.
The basic model includes an isolated 24 VDC transmitter power supply that can be
used to power the input transmitters or other devices. An additional isolated 24 VDC
power supply is included with the 4-20 mA output option. A digital input is standard.
A fully loaded PD6060 meter has the following: four SPDT relays, 4-20 mA output, and
two 24 VDC power supplies. The PD6060 capabilities may be enhanced by adding the
following external expansion modules: four SPST relays –creating an eight-relay dualinput process meter, two digital I/O modules with four inputs and four outputs each,
serial communication adapters for use with MeterView Pro or Modbus RTU, and a dual 420 mA expansion module.

Switching Inductive Loads
The use of suppressors (snubbers) is strongly recommended when switching
inductive loads to prevent disrupting the microprocessor’s operation. The
suppressors also prolong the life of the relay contacts. Suppression can be
obtained with resistor-capacitor (RC) networks assembled by the user or
purchased as complete assemblies. Refer to the following circuits for RC network
assembly and installation:
C
C
R
R
Figure 13. AC and DC Loads Protection
Choose R and C as follows:
R: 0.5 to 1 Ω for each volt across the contacts
C: 0.5 to 1 µF for each amp through closed contacts
Notes:
1.
2.
3.
Use capacitors rated for 250 VAC.
RC networks may affect load release time of solenoid loads. Check to
confirm proper operation.
Install the RC network at the meter's relay screw terminals. An RC network
may also be installed across the load. Experiment for best results.
Use a diode with a reverse
breakdown voltage two to
three times the circuit
voltage and forward current
at least as large as the load
current.
Figure 14. Low Voltage DC Loads Protection
RC Networks Available from Precision Digital
RC networks are available from Precision Digital and should be applied to each
relay contact switching an inductive load. Part number: PDX6901.
Note: Relays are de-rated to 1/14th HP (50 watts) with an inductive load.

Interlock Relay Feature
As the name implies, the interlock relay feature reassigns one, or more,
alarm/control relays for use as interlock relay(s). Interlock contact(s) are
wired to digital input(s) and trigger the interlock relay. This feature is
enabled by configuring the relay, and relative digital input(s) (see page
61). In one example, dry interlock contacts are connected in series to
one digital input which will be used to force on (energize) the assigned
interlock power relay when all interlock contacts are closed (safe). The
interlock relay front panel LED flashes when locked out. The interlock
relay would be wired in-series with the load (N/O contact). See below.

Programming the Meter (prog)
It is very important to read the following information, before proceeding
to program the meter:

The meter is factory calibrated prior to shipment to read in
milliamps and volts depending on the input selection. The
calibration equipment is certified to NIST standards.

Use the Scale menu to scale the process input (e.g. 4-20 mA). A
calibrated signal source is not needed to scale the meter.

Use the Calibrate menu to apply a signal from a calibrator or a
flowmeter.
The Program menu contains the Scale and the Calibrate menus for
channels A & B.
The process inputs may be calibrated or scaled to any display value
within the range of the meter.
Note: The Scale and Calibrate functions are exclusive of each other.
The meter uses the last function programmed. Only one of these
methods can be employed at a time. The Scale and Calibrate functions
can use up to 32 points (default is 2). The number of points should be
set in the Advanced Menu under the menu selection prior to scaling and
calibration of the meter, see page 75 for details.
36
Model PD6060 Dual-Input Process Meter
Instruction Manual
Multi-Point Linearization (Linear)

Error Message (Error)
An error message indicates that the calibration or scaling process was
not successful.
After the error message is displayed, the meter reverts to input 2 during
calibration or scaling and to input 1 during internal calibration, allowing
the appropriate input signal to be applied or programmed.
The error message might be caused by any of the following conditions:
1. Input signal is not connected to the proper terminals or it is
connected backwards.
2. Wrong signal selection in Setup menu.
3. Minimum input span requirements not maintained.
4. Input 1 signal inadvertently applied to calibrate input 2.
Minimum Input Span
The minimum input span is the minimum difference between input 1 and
input 2 signals required to complete the calibration or scaling of the meter.

Calibrating the Meter with External Source
To scale the meter without a signal source
refer to Scaling the Meter without a Signal
Source, page 37.
Warm up the meter for at least 15 minutes
before performing calibration to ensure
specified accuracy.
The meter can be calibrated to display the process variable in
engineering units by applying the appropriate input signal and following
the calibration procedure.
The use of a calibrated signal source is strongly recommended to
calibrate the meter.

Programming Set and Reset Points
High alarm indication: program set point above reset point.
Low alarm indication: program set point below reset point.
The deadband is determined by the difference between set and reset
points. Minimum deadband is one display count. If the set and reset
points are programmed with the same value, the relay will reset one
count below the set point.
Note: Changes are not saved until the reset point has been accepted.
Setting Fail-Safe Operation
In fail-safe mode of operation, the relay coil is energized when the
process variable is within safe limits and the relay coil is de-energized
when the alarm condition exists. The fail-safe operation is set
independently for each relay. Select on to enable or select off to
disable fail-safe operation.
Programming Time Delay
The On and Off time delays may be programmed for each relay
between 0 and 999.9 seconds. The relays will transfer only after the
condition has been maintained for the corresponding time delay.
The On time delay is associated with the set point.
The Off time delay is associated with the reset point.
Relay Action for Loss of 4-20 mA Input (Loop Break)
The loop break feature is associated with the 4-20 mA input. Each relay
may be programmed to go to one of the following conditions when the
meter detects the loss of the input signal (i.e. < 0.005 mA):
1. Turn On (Go to alarm condition)
2. Turn Off (Go to non-alarm condition)
3. Ignore (Processed as a low signal condition)
Note: This is not a true loop break condition; if the signal drops below
0.005 mA, it is interpreted as a “loop break” condition.

When the signal crosses the set point, the On time delay timer starts
and the relay trips when the time delay has elapsed. If the signal drops
below the set point (high alarm) before the time delay has elapsed, the
On time delay timer resets and the relay does not change state. The
same principle applies to the Off time delay.

Relay Operation Details
Overview
The relay capabilities of the meter expand its usefulness beyond simple
indication to provide users with alarm and control functions. These
capabilities include front panel alarm status LEDs as well as either 2 or
4 optional internal relays and/or 4 external relays expansion module.
Typical applications include high or low temperature, level, pressure or
flow alarms, control applications such as simple on/off pump control,
and pump alternation control for up to 8 pumps. There are four basic
ways the relays can be used:
1. High or Low Alarms with Latching or Non-Latching Relays
2. Simple On/Off Control with 100% Adjustable Deadband
3. Sampling (Based on Time)
4. Pump Alternation Control for up to 8 Pumps
Relays Auto Initialization
When power is applied to the meter, the front panel LEDs and alarm
relays will reflect the state of the input to the meter. The following table
indicates how the alarm LEDs and relays will react on power-up based
on the set and reset points:

Alarm 8
The meter is supplied with four alarm points that include front panel
LEDs to indicate alarm conditions. This standard feature is particularly
useful for alarm applications that require visual-only indication. The
LEDs are controlled by the set and reset points programmed by the
user. When the display reaches a set point for a high or low alarm, the
corresponding alarm LED will turn on. When the display returns to the
reset point the LED will go off. The front panel LEDs responds
differently for latching and non-latching relays.
For non-latching relays, the LED is always off during normal condition
and always on during alarm condition, regardless of the state of the
relay (e.g. Relay acknowledged after alarm condition).
For latching relays, the alarm LEDs reflects the status of the relays,
regardless of the alarm condition. The following tables illustrate how the
alarm LEDs function in relation to the relays and the acknowledge
button (Default: F3 key assigned to ACK):
Latching and Non-Latching Relay Operation
The relays can be set up for latching (manual reset) or non-latching
(automatic reset) operation.

In this application, the meter is set up for manual reset only after the

Acknowledging the alarm while it is still present has no effect on either
the LED or the relay. When the alarm is acknowledged after it returns to
the normal state, the LED and the relay go off. Notice that the LED
remains on, even after the meter returns to the normal condition. This is
because, for latching relays, the alarm LED reflects the status of the
relay, regardless of the alarm condition.
Acknowledging Relays
There are two ways to acknowledge relays programmed for manual
reset:
1. Via the programmable front panel function keys F1-F3 (Default:
F3 assigned to ACK).
2. Remotely via a normally open pushbutton wired across one of
the digital inputs and the +5 V terminals on the digital I/O
modules, or using the F4 digital input, which is triggered with a
contact closure to COM, or with an active low signal (see page
24).
When the ACK button or the assigned digital input is closed, all relays
programmed for manual reset are acknowledged.

Pump Alternation Control Applications (Altern)
For pump control applications where two or more similar pumps are
used to control the level of a tank or a well, it is desirable to have all the
pumps operate alternately. This prevents excessive wear and
overheating of one pump over the lack of use of the other pumps.
Up to 8 relays can be set up to alternate every time an on/off pump
cycle is completed. The set points and reset points can be programmed,
so that the first pump on is the first pump off.
Application #1: Pump Alternation Using Relays 1 & 2
1. Relays 1 and 2 are set up for pump alternation.
2. Relays 3 and 4 are set up for low and high alarm indication.

Pump Alternation Operation
Pump #1 turns on when level reaches 30.000, when level drops
below 10.000 pump #1 turns off.
The next time level reaches 30.000, pump #2 turns on, when level
drops below 10.000, pump #2 turns off.
If the level doesn’t reach 35.000 pump #1 and pump #2 will be
operating alternately.
If pump #1 cannot keep the level below 35.000 pump #2 will turn on
at 35.000, then as the level drops to 10.000 pump #1 turns off,
pump #2 is still running and shuts off below 5.000.
Notice that with the set and reset points of pump #2 outside the
range of pump #1, the first pump on is the first pump to go off. This
is true for up to 8 alternating pumps, if setup accordingly.
Relay #3 will go into alarm if the level drops below 4.000 and relay
#4 will go into alarm if the level exceeds 40.000.
Adding the 4 external relays expansion module allows using the 4
SPDT internal relays for pump alternation and the 4 SPST external
relays for high, high-high, low, and low-low alarm indication.

Interlock Relay Operation Example
Relays 1 & 2 are configured to energize (their front panel LEDs are off)
when SW1 & SW2 switches (above) are closed. If the contacts to these
digital inputs are opened, the corresponding front panel LEDs flash,
indicating this condition. The processes being controlled by the interlock
relay will stop, and will re-start only after the interlock relay is reactivated by the digital inputs (switches).
Note: If multiple digital inputs are assigned to the same relay, then the
corresponding logic is (AND) – i.e. both switches must be closed to trip
the relay.
Scaling the 4-20 mA Analog Output (Aout)
The 4-20 mA analog outputs can be scaled to provide a 4-20 mA signal
for any display range selected. To select the channel and source
assignments the analog outputs are assigned to, see Analog Output
Source on page 78.
No equipment is needed to scale the analog outputs; simply program
the display values to the corresponding mA output signal.
The Analog Output menu is used to program the 4-20 mA outputs
based on display values.

Model PD6060 Dual-Input Process Meter
Instruction Manual
Noise Filter (filter)
The noise filter is available for unusually noisy signals that cause an
unstable process variable display. The noise filter averages the input
signal over a certain period. The filter level determines the length of time
over which the signal is averaged. The filter level can be set between 2
and 199. The higher the filter level, the longer the averaging time and so
the longer it takes the display to settle to its final value. Setting the filter
level to zero disables the filter function.
Noise Filter Bypass (bypass)
The noise filter bypass changes the behavior of the meter so that small
variations in the signal are filtered out but large abrupt changes in the
input signal are displayed immediately. The bypass value determines
the minimum amount of signal change to be displayed immediately. All
signal changes smaller than the bypass value are filtered or averaged
by the meter. The noise filter bypass may be set between 0.1 and
99.9% of full scale.
71
Model PD6060 Dual-Input Process Meter
Instruction Manual
Rounding Feature (round)
The rounding feature is used to give the user a steadier display with
fluctuating signals. Rounding is used in addition to the filter function.
Rounding causes the display to round to the nearest value according to
the rounding selected. This setting affects the last two digits, regardless
of decimal point position.
Modbus RTU Serial Communications (serial)
The meter is equipped with serial communications capability as a
standard feature using Modbus RTU Serial Communication Protocol.
To communicate with a computer or other data terminal equipment, an
RS-232, RS-485, or USB adapter option is required; see Ordering
Information on page 7 for details.
Warning!
Do not connect any equipment other than Precision
Digital’s expansion modules, cables, or meters to the
RJ45 M-LINK connector. Otherwise damage will occur
to the equipment and the meter.
Note: More detailed instructions are provided with each optional serial
communications adapter. Note: Refer to the ProVu® Modbus
Register Tables located at www.predig.com for details.
When using more than one meter in a multi-drop mode, each meter
must be provided with its own unique address. The meter address
(Slave ID) may be programmed between 1 and 247. The transmit delay
may be set between 0 and 199 ms. The parity can be set to even, odd,
or none with 1 or 2 stop bits.
Changes made to the Serial menu are initialized after the MENU key is
pressed or after navigating through the t-byte parameter.

Select Menu (SElect)
The Select menu is used to select the signal input conditioning function
applied to the inputs (linear, square root, programmable exponent, or
round horizontal tank), math function for A & B, constants, low-flow
cutoff, and analog output programming. Multi-point linearization is part
of the linear function selection.
73
Model PD6060 Dual-Input Process Meter
Instruction Manual
Signal Input Conditioning (Functn)
The Function menu is used to select the input-to-output transfer function
applied to the input signal: linear, square root, programmable exponent,
or round horizontal tank volume calculation. Multi-point linearization is
part of the linear function selection.
Meters are set up at the factory for linear function with 2-point
linearization. The linear function provides a display that is linear with
respect to the input signal.
Square Root Linearization (Square)
The square root function is used to calculate flow measured with a
differential pressure transmitter. The flow rate is proportional to the
square root of the differential pressure. Scale the meter so that the low
input signal (e.g. 4 mA) is equal to zero flow and the high input signal
(e.g. 20 mA) is equal to the maximum flow.
Programmable Exponent Linearization (Prog E)
The programmable exponent function is used to calculate open-channel
flow measured with a level transmitter in weirs and flumes. The flow rate
is proportional to the head height. Scale the meter so that the low input
signal (e.g. 4 mA) is equal to zero flow and the high input signal (e.g. 20
mA) is equal to the maximum flow. This method works well for all weirs
and flumes that have a simple exponent in the flow calculation formula.
For weirs and flumes with complex exponents it is necessary to use a
strapping table and the 32-point linearization of the meter.
74
Model PD6060 Dual-Input Process Meter
Instruction Manual
Multi-Point Linearization (Linear)
Meters are set up at the factory for linear function with 2-point
linearization. Up to 32 linearization points can be selected for each
channel under the linear function. The multi-point linearization can be
used to linearize the display for non-linear signals such as those from
level transmitters used to measure volume in odd-shaped tanks or to
convert level to flow using weirs and flumes with complex exponent.
Round Horizontal Tank Linearization (rHt)
This function is used to calculate volume in a round horizontal tank with
flat ends. The volume is calculated based on the diameter and length of
the tank. The tank’s dimensions can be entered in inches or
centimeters; the meter automatically calculates the volume in gallons or
liters. After entering the dimensions, complete the scaling process with
the display values calculated by the meter. The meter can be re-scaled
to display the volume in any engineering unit without the need to reenter the dimensions again.
Note: After Scale is displayed continue pressing the Enter button until
the meter completes the scaling of the input and display values.
75
Model PD6060 Dual-Input Process Meter
Instruction Manual
Changing the Volume from Gallons to Liters
In the above graphic, entering the 48" for the diameter and 120" for the
length of the round horizontal tank, the meter automatically calculates
that the volume of the tank is 940.02 gallons.
1. Convert gallons to liters
1 US gallon = 3.7854 L
940.02 gal = 3558.4 L
2. Go to the Setup menu and change the decimal point to 1 decimal.
3. Go to the Program – Scale menu and press Enter until dis 2 is
shown on the Upper display.
4. Press Enter and change the display 2 value to 3558.4.
5. The meter is now displaying the volume in liters.
Note: The display can be scaled to display the volume in any
engineering units.

C math. The math functions include input channel A and B, as well as
the adder constant P, and factor constant F.
The Adder constant (P) may be set from -99.999 to 999.999.
The Factor constant (F) may be set from 0.001 to 999.999.
The chart on page 76 details the math functions that may be selected in
the Math Function menu.
Low-Flow Cutoff (CutofF)
The low-flow cutoff feature allows the meter to be programmed so that
the often-unsteady output from a differential pressure transmitter, at low
flow rates, always displays zero on the meter.
The cutoff value may be programmed from 0 to 999999. The meter will
display zero below the cutoff value. Programming the cutoff value to
zero disables the cutoff feature.
Analog Output Programming (AoutPr)
The Analog Output Programming menu is used to program the behavior
of the 4-20 mA output. The following parameters and functions are
programmed in this menu:
1. Source: Source for generating the 4-20 mA output
2. Overrange: Analog output value with display in overrange condition
3. Underrange: Analog output value with display in underrange condition
4. Break: Analog output value when loop break is detected
5. Max: Maximum analog output value allowed regardless of input
6. Min: Minimum analog output value allowed regardless of input
7. Calibrate: Calibrate the internal 4-20 mA source reference used to
scale the 4-20 mA output
77
Model PD6060 Dual-Input Process Meter
Instruction Manual
Analog Output Source
The analog output source can be based on either of the input channels
(Ch-A, Ch-B), the math channel (Ch-C), maximum stored value of either
input channel (Hi-A, Hi-B), minimum stored value of either input channel
(Lo-A, Lo-B), relay set points, or the Modbus input.
Analog Output Calibration
To perform the analog output calibration it is recommended to use a
milliamp meter with a resolution of at least 0.1 µA to measure the output
current. The values saved internally during this procedure are used for
scaling the 4-20 mA output in the Setup menu.

METER OPERATION
The meter is capable of accepting two input channels (A and B) of either
current (0-20 mA, 4-20 mA) or voltage signals (0-5 V, 1-5 V, 0-10 V, 
10 V) and displaying these signals in engineering units from -99999 to
999999 (e.g. a 4-20 mA signal could be displayed as -50.000 to
50.000).
A math function channel (C) is available to perform operations on
channel A and B, with adder and factor constants, and display the
results. Engineering units or tags may be displayed with these three
channels.
The dual-line display can be customized by the user. Typically the upper
display is used to display the math channel C, while the lower display is
used to alternate between displaying input channels A and B.
