Product Specs

The Industry Leading PLATINUM Series family of microprocessor-based digital panel meters offer unparalleled flexibility in process measurement. While extremely powerful and versatile, great care has gone into designing a product that is very easy to set-up and use. The automatic hardware configuration recognition eliminates the need for jumpers and allows the firmware to automatically simplify itself, eliminating all menu options that do not apply to a specific configuration.

Each unit allows the user to select the input type from 9 thermocouple types (J, K, T, E, R, S, B, C, and N), Pt RTDs (100, 500, or 1000 Ω, with either 385, 392, or 3916 curve), thermistors (2250 Ω, 5K Ω, and 10K Ω), DC voltage, or DC current, and Strain & Bridge Inputs. The bipolar voltage or current inputs are fully scalable to virtually all engineering units, with a selectable decimal point that is perfect for use with pressure, flow, or other process input.

Two alarms can be configured for above, below, hi/lo, and band triggering using either absolute or deviation alarm trigger points. In addition, high-high/low-low indication is available. The two optional single pole double throw mechanical relays can be assigned to either or both alarm triggers. Two annunciators and three display colors can also be assigned to the alarm triggers.

The PLATINUMΩ Series device features a large, 3-color, 9 segment programmable LED display with the capability to change color and/or change the state of designated outputs every time an alarm is triggered. Now 6 digit display is available. The universal power supply accepts 90 to 240 Vac. The low voltage power option accepts 24 Vac or 12 to 36 Vdc.

Embedded Ethernet and Serial Communications
Optional embedded ethernet on the 1Ω16 and 1Ω8 DIN models allow the units to connect directly to an ethernet network and transmit data in standard TCP/IP packets, or serve web pages over a LAN or the internet. Optional serial communications are also available configurable as RS232 or RS485, with straightforward ASCII commands or MODBUS®. All three types of communications interfaces (USB, ethernet, and serial) can be installed and active simultaneously.

*If you have the previous firmware version 1.3.0.25 installed, please upgrade it to the latest.

Accessories
Use the optional PT-USB-CABLE for a NEMA4 rated panel mount USB connector. A 12" (304mm) length cable connects from USB port of Platinum controller to your control panel. This accessory includes a protective end cap when not in use.

The PT-USB-ADAPTER, which is supplied with each unit, can be plugged into the controller and be used with a standard USB 2.0 memory stick.

This 1 GB USB thumbdrive has a standard USB connector on one end and a micro-USB connector on the other end. It is convenient for transferring files between your PC and your PLATINUM unit.

The part numbers listed below are only examples. More configurations are offered and can be constructed using the part number builder at the bottom of the page.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basic DAQ For a basic data acquisition this part works fine. I had to call into omega for help navigating the menu to get the scaling correct for the 4-20mA, 0-1000psi pressure transducer. If all you need to do is acquire and log data from display this part is just fine.

The DPT8 lists a low power option allowing the device to be powered by 24VAC (or 12-36V DC) on the data sheet, but it is not clear what model(s) are associated with this option. The models are listed as being either AC or DC powered only.

Asked by: RichardP
Hi Richard, Thanks for the inquiry. Models are available with the low voltage (power) option and this option is indicated with a suffix "-DC". Please see data sheet for options table; https://assets.omega.com/pdf/process-control-and-monitoring-devices/meters/process-meters/DPPT_Series.pdf

I need a temperature gage that will read Liquid Nitrogen temp. -320°F I found this series, PLATINUM™ Series Digital Panel Meters, or do you have a self contained temp gage?

Asked by: mikek
Hi mikek, Thank you for the inquiry. We do not offer fixed mount integrated meter probe combination for Liquid N2 application. Best regards OMEGA

I have a DP8PT-330-EIC and on power up it is displaying three things bUSB, bSER, and bEIP. I looked in the manual and can't find any information on this. What do those mean? It seems like the unit doesn't respond to any button presses either.

Asked by: Radomnik
This means that the firmware is not being recognized or corrupted. You can go to Omega's FTP site and get firmware to update your Controller and not successful it can be returned for repair.

The Platinum User Guide and manual do not mention factory calibration. Do these units go through a calibration process? If so. is it traceable to NIST? Or do you consider calibration to be something that is done to analog devices only? Thanks.

Asked by: Superior Tech
Thank you for your inquiry. Unit is shipped fully calibrated from factory.

does the dp8pt-dc have battery backup

Asked by: sparky2
Thanks for connecting with Omega. Part number DP8PT-DC does not have battery backup. You do not need to reprogram when power is lost. This unit will retain all the configuration parameters in non-volatile memory. Please email our Tech Support rep back if you have any further questions.
