The MKE-5-IS Digital Indicator has all of the mechanical features and advantages present in the MKE-5 (the non-IS equivalent). However, the MKE-5-IS is exclusively built to be Explosion Proof and Intrinsically Safe for use in Hazardous/Classified Environments.
The indicator features a flame proof Nylon Enclosure
and a specially designed control board approved for intrinsic safety. Our full function keypad enables alphanumeric data input, while the large graphic display gives easy to read results. A variety of communication options allows data to be sent to and received from other computerized instruments.
New Features The MKE-5-IS Intrinsically Safe Digital Indicator can now be configured in multiple ways to meet the needs of specific applications. AC Powered Systems are now available (see Configuration #2). Secondary Safe Area display are also available. These and other configurations are illustrated here.

Nonincendive for use in Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C and D Suitable for use in Class II, Division 2, Groups F & G. Class III Division 2 indoor Hazardous (Classified) Locations.
Flame Proof & Water Resistant
Special flame proof Nylon enclosure allows sealed with rubber gasket helps keep out moisture.
Easy to See
Stainless steel swivel bracket allows the display to be seen from any angle. The bracket may be mounted in a convenient spot on a post, or desk or wall.
Load Cell Connectivity
Compatible with 4-wire Load Cell connection (Excitation +, Excitation -, Signal +, Signal -). Comes with 5-pin DIN connectors or HDMI connection for ease of use. Wiring information available on request. Customized connectors also supported.
Safe Communication Options
The MKE-5-IS allows for low-voltage intrinsically safe communication to take place using RS-422, 4-wire communication. It also allows for discrete Setpoint outputs for trigger signals to be sent to PLCs.
In addition to intrinsically safe communication options, the MKE-5-IS can also be equipped with non-IS communication features such as RS-232, USB, Ethernet TCP/IP and Wi-Fi.
Advanced options, features and outputs such as USB Data Logging, Modbus, Integration with Google Spreadsheets and AxChange Cloud Monitoring are available with a secondary display in the safe area. Check out the Upgrades Table
below for a list of options we offer.
