The ADP15 is a digital panel meter indicator for process inputs, and is used with a wide range of sensors and transducers, including volts (0-10 V), current (4-20 mA), temperature, frequency, speed, load, force, pressure, torque, LVDT, and many more. The digital architecture offers very easy one-pass calibration and fast setup. With options of isolated analogue outputs, latching relays or digital outputs for control or alarm functions. The RS232 or RS485 options provide for digital communications (including setup) and can support label or ticket printers.

For a wall or surface mount version of the ADP15, see model SMP Indicator For Temperature, 0-10 V, 4-20 mA, speed and potentiometer and for a wireless radio telemetry version, see model T24-IA or T24-VA for Wireless Telemetry Input Modules
