APG DCR-1006A Display Controller

APG DCR-1006A Display Controller

APG's story begins with a Utah State University graduate using his engineering skills to make a difference in the lives of farmers. Cordell Lundahl designed an ultrasonic sensor and control system that could guide farm machinery around the uncut edge of a field. A farmer, riding in a second machine, could effectively make two cuts with one pass leaving more time for all the other unending farm chores. Fast-forward 40 years, and APG now offers a full line of level sensors and switches, pressure transducers, and data management tools to help everyone from farmers to chemists, and waste managers to food and beverage producers control their processes and inventories.

APG DCR-1006A Display Controller | Descriptions

The DCR-1006A display controller works together with our MNU or DST ultrasonic sensors as well as the MPX level probe to allow simple level monitoring and control without the need of a more advanced system. This system performs reliably to meet your application needs today. With several sensors to choose from, and a variety of mounts, ranges, and outputs, there are plenty of options for your application needs. Full controller with 4 relays and signal outputs. The DCR-1006A is a capable stand alone controller for select APG Modbus level sensors.

Simple, Low-Cost Control

The DCR-1006A controller works together with our MNU ultrasonic sensors to allow simple level monitoring and control without the need of a more advanced system. It's also compatible with our DST ultrasonic sensors.
