PowerView PVA Gauges
The PowerView Analog Gages (PVA) are a series of intelligent gages designed to display easy-to-read information
transmitted by the PowerView. The PVA gages communicate with the PowerView via a single RS485 twisted pair
MODBUS® RTU serial link. The gages can be daisy-chained using quick-connect harnesses with watertight connectors.
The major feature of the PVA gages is their balance between design and functionality. These modern gages offer a
selection of lens and bezel styles and colors.
