Graphical Panel Helps Connect Legacy Equipment

Feb. 16, 2022
The PM-50 makes it easier for machine operators to utilize data from legacy equipment.

Legacy equipment in plants can make it difficult, time-consuming and costly to extract data from the machines to help improve performance. Red Lion’s newly launched graphical panel meter, PM-50, is designed to change that. Available through Allied Electronics & Automation, the new wireless smart panel meter makes it easier for machine operators to unlock and use data from their factory floor. The PM-50 can be used in industrial factories, food and beverage, water/wastewater and packaging plants, and anywhere else panel meters are currently used.

Harvesting plant data is as simple as unplugging the old meter, inserting the PM-50 and connecting it to Wi-Fi. Its graphical interface is intuitive and similar to personal smart devices most operators are comfortable using every day. Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity delivers data from the panel meter to the operator’s smartphone or tablet using an app. The app provides a simple upgrade path for future improvements. Wired connectivity is also available via Ethernet and Modbus.
