PAX® Lite Series Temperature Meter is programmable for 14 different thermocouple and RTD inputs for simplified set up and reliable temperature monitoring and control. Featuring proven PAX programming and a universal power supply with dual set point controls, the PAXLT is easily configured to output at desired minimum and maximum temperatures, making it ideal for applications where dual output temperature monitoring is required.  “The PAXLT is perfect for applications where the user needs more than basic temperature reading, but not all the features of a fully outfitted panel meter. The PAXLT Temperature Meter provides reliability and offers relay output control at an affordable price,” said Jeff Thornton, Product Manager at Red Lion. “The design of the meter allows for customization in user input programming, such as scheduled capture times, resulting in dependable, controlled temperature monitoring, and the universal power supply allows for simple integration into a variety of applications.”  Easily programmable capture times, a standard feature of the PAXLT Temperature Meter, are utilized to prevent false maximum and minimum readings which may occur during start-up or unique process events. Additionally, output modes and setup options are fully programmable, allowing for dependable readings in a variety of control applications. Designed specifically to withstand harsh industrial environments, the PAXLT Temperature Meter is manufactured with NEMA 4X/IP65 sealed bezel and complies with CE requirements, ensuring a tough yet reliable application solution.  Offering cold junction compensation, temperature scale, decimal point display and filtering, the PAXLT Temperature Meter provides additional features that make a reliable control solution, including: 5 digit, 0.56" High Red LED Display Backlight Overlays (°C and °F) Dual 5 Amp Form C relays Programmable Temperature Offset Meets ITS-90 Standards UL Listed (PAXLT0U0) Universal Power Supply NEMA 4X/IP65 Accepts 14 Standard Thermocouples and RTD Input Types • DISPLAY: 5 digit, 0.56" (14.2 mm) intensity adjustable Red LED • POWER REQUIREMENTS: • AC POWER: 50 to 250 VAC 50/60 Hz, 12 VA • Isolation: 2300 Vrms for 1 min. to all inputs and outputs • DC POWER: 21.6 to 250 VDC, 6 W • DC Out: +24 VDC @ 100 mA if input voltage is greater than 50 VAC/VDC • +24 VDC @ 50 mA if input voltage is less than 50 VDC • READOUT: • Display Range: -19999 to 99999 • Scale: °F or °C • Resolution: 1° or 0.1° • Response Time: 500 msec min. • RTD INPUTS: • Type: 2, 3 or 4 wire • Excitation Current: • 100 ohm range: 165 ?A; 10 ohm range: 2.5 mA • Lead Resistance: • 100 ohm range: 10 ?/lead max.; 10 ohm range: 3 ?/lead max. • Balanced Lead Resistance: Automatically compensated up to max per lead • Unbalanced Lead Resistance: Uncompensated • USER INPUT: Programmable input • Software selectable for active logic state: active low, pull-up (24.7 K? to +5 • VDC) or active high, pull-down resistor (20 K?). • Trigger levels: VIL = 1.0 V max; VIH = 2.4 V min; VMAX = 28 VDC • Response Time: 10 msec typ.; 50 msec debounce (activation and release) • MEMORY: Nonvolatile E2 • PROM retains all programming parameters and • max/min values when power is removed. • OUTPUTS: • Type: Dual Form C contacts • Isolation to Sensor & User Input Commons: 1400 Vrms for 1 min. • Working Voltage: 150 Vrms • Contact Rating: 5 amps @ 120/240 VAC or 28 VDC (resistive load), 1/8 • H.P. @ 120 VAC (inductive load) • ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS: • Operating temperature: 0 to 50 °C • Storage temperature: -40 to 70 °C • Operating and storage humidity: 0 to 85% max.
