1 .. LARGE LED DISPLAY READABLE TO 180 FEET .. VARIOUS DIGITAL INPUT MODULES; COUNT AND RATE INPUT CLOCK/TIMER SERIAL SLAVE .. ALARMS, ANALOG OUTPUT, AND COMMUNICATION .. PROGRAMMABLE USER INPUTS .. UNIVERSAL AC POWERED (85 to 250 VAC) .. PC SOFTWARE FOR METER CONFIGURATION .. NEMA 4X/IP65 GENERAL DESCRIPTION The EPAX Display is a versatile display that can increase productivity by offering the plant floor or production area a large visual display of their current status. Whether your measurement is rate, count, or time, the EPAX can satisfy your requirement. The EPAX displays accept various digital inputs through the use of input modules (MPAX) which allow the unit to adapt to most any application. The MPAX Modules offer the same features as our highly successful PAX Series Panel Meters. Additional plug-in option cards can add alarms, analog output, and communication/bus capabilities, making the EPAX a truly Intelligent Panel Meter. SAFETY SUMMARY All safety regulations, local codes and instructions that appear in this and corresponding literature, or on equipment, must be observed to ensure personal safety and to prevent damage to either the instrument or equipment connected to it. If equipment is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer, the protection provided by the equipment may be impaired. The protective conductor terminal is bonded to conductive parts of the equipment for safety purposes and must be connected to an external protective earthing system. SPECIFICATIONS Additional specifications, wiring, programming, and information for the individual MPAX models are contained in the corresponding standard PAX literature. This PAX literature is shipped with the ordered MPAX model. 1. DISPLAY: 4" (101 mm) Red LED 6-Digit (EPAX0600): (-99999 to 999999) 2. POWER REQUIREMENTS: AC MPAX Modules: 85 to 250 VAC, 50/60 Hz, 18 VA EPAX Display: 85 to 250 VAC, 50/60 Hz, 10 VA 3. INPUT: Accepts digital input modules, see “Selecting Your Display Components and Option Cards.” 4. ANNUNCIATORS: Display Indication: Three vertical dots on the left side of the unit identify the displays for the following modules: Setpoint Indication: Four vertical dots on the right side of the unit identify the setpoint “ON” condition, with SP 1 being the top position through SP 4 at the bottom. 5. EPAX Programming: The unit is a large display, designed to be remotely mounted. Therefore, the unit does not have a programming keypad. Unit programming should be accomplished by one of the following methods: Rear Terminal Block: External switches can be wired via the terminal block to allow unit programming. A minimum of 3 switches would be required. Optional Programming Remote (EPAXPGM0): This option provides a 10 foot interconnecting cable and programming box. The Programming Remote contains buttons similar to the PAX, allowing easy programming of the EPAX display. Optional Serial Programming: Like all PAX units, you can purchase an RS232 or RS485 Comms Card and program the unit via Windows® based software programs.

CAUTION: The MPAX main circuit board and the option cards contain static sensitive components. Before handling the module or the cards, discharge static charges from your body by touching a grounded bare metal object. Handle the module by the rear plastic cover only, and the option cards by the board edges. Dirt, oil or other contaminants that contact the circuit boards or components can adversely affect circuit operation. WARNING: Exposed line voltage exists on the MPAX main circuit board and the option cards. DO NOT apply power to the module OR load circuits until the module is properly...

4 2.0 INSTALLING THE DISPLAY EPAX DISPLAY INSTALLATION The EPAX display is intended to be mounted into a panel or enclosure. The display is provided with a gasket to provide a water-tight seal. The recommended minimum panel thickness for NEMA 4/IP65 sealing is 0.060" (1.57 mm). For panel mounting, prepare the panel cut-out to the dimensions shown in Figure 3. The supplied template may be used to mark the cut-out and hole locations on the panel. After the panel cut-out has been deburred, slide the panel gasket over the rear of the display and onto the mounting studs. Insert the display into...
