Digital Panel Meter features TFML

Status Instruments are introducing their model DM3600, six digit, intelligent digital panel meter. This highly versatile product is the latest Status instrument to feature their powerful TFML (Transfer Function Module Library) software capability. TFML allows the DM3600 to be instantly customised for a specific application, simply by down loading a free software module from the Status web site, directly into the instrument. Standard modules include PID control, level with density compensation, rate of change limiter, pump lift station control, peak hold and valley hold. Customer specific modules can also be easily written.

The DM3600, which can be powered from AC or DC supplies, accepts inputs from most standard sensor types including mA, mV, V, RTD and RTC. All operating functions are programmable either via the integral front panel keys or the standard RS485 serial port using Modbus protocol. Standard internal software features include start up alarm delay, peak and valley memory, password protection and set baud rate.

4-20 mA retransmission and alarm relays can be added using two plug-in option pods at the back of the unit. Two isolated digital inputs are available to reset latched alarms, reset peak and valley memories or for use with TFML.

The DM3600 is also available with a versatile flow totalisations option which enables non volatile storage of integrated flow total and output options can be selected to operate on the Prime Variable(PV) or Total. The standard software allows power 3/2 and 5/2 flow Linearisation giving a 4-20 mA output proportional to flow as well as pulsing a relay in multiples of flow rate to an external totaliser.

In addition to the RS485 Modbus rtu communication capability, each DM3600 is supplied with OPC Client-Server software which ensures excellent plug and play connectivity within modern industrial environments. Managed by the OPC Foundation, OPC (Object linking in Process Control) is an industry standard created with the collaboration of leading worldwide automation and software companies, working in cooperation with Microsoft. Any OPC compliant device can be easily and seamlessly connected to another without the need for additional gateway modules and lengthy installation procedures.

The DM3600 is a part of Status Instruments= wide range of panel meters, temperature transmitters and signal conditioning units.
