Engineered to perform in the harshest outdoor marine environments, the RPC-80x Rugged Programmable Controller offers a ruggedized compact HMI combined with today’s latest processing technology. Noted for years of performance in extreme environments where viewability is critical, the RPC-80x RPC is set apart from other panel meters, HMIs and analog gauges, not only by its robust durability but its advanced control and datalogging capabilities.  Ideally suited for harsh applications from simple to advanced automatic control, versions of the controller are available preconfigured for common monitoring applications. 

Five fully-sealed pushbuttons within a heavy-duty 316 stainless steel front panel access an easy-to-follow English language menu for field calibration changes, I/O channel configuration, alarm settings, network settings, and screen layout - all intuitive and right at your fingertips.

Sensor parameters are displayed on a crisp, bright 160x80 electroluminescent (EL) display with an unparalelled 179° viewing angle for unmatched readability in all light conditions. Force, rotational, analog and digital sensor input channels, multiple analog, contact, and digital I/O data channels, serial and TCP/IP networking capabilities, and USB mass storage provide flexibility in monitoring or SCADA applications, and the RPC-80x RPC can be linked with additional RPC-80x displays to create a remote monitoring network.

The RPC-80x RPC is available in panel mount configuration, or with a variety of enclosure options, including rugged weatherproof deck enclosures, portable Pelican cases, purged and pressurized and other EX rated enclosures.
