The APM features a highly visual, easy-to-read display and a versatile set of inputs, the Process Meter takes the APM into a
wide range of new industrial applications.
The programmable scale and custom annunciators mean users can tailor the meter to display their critical parameters precisely how they want, whilst the dynamic backlighting, in conjunction with set-points, means users are instantly, visually alerted when the process variable is out of range. The two outputs can be used to integrate into other systems, meaning the APM Process Meter can do much more than just a display.
Innovative design technology brings a greater level of accuracy to the APM range through input signal optimization. By using this technology, accuracy of 0.1% or better is now achieved, allowing for more precise measurement, digital display and control. Non-linear sensors, such as thermocouples and pressure transducers, can also be used thanks to the new APM Configurator application that allows the user to configure upto 20 points in a non-linear conversion table.
The APM Process digital panel meter is used to display the volume of fluid in the tank. The 4-20mA analog output from the fluid level sensor is scaled to gallons, and the custom annunciator set to "Gal", all via the easy-touse software application. High and low setpoints are configured so that the normal green display will flash red when the tank is too full or empty, thereby alerting the operator. Additionally the APM digital outputs are integrated into the tank pumping system and the tank is automatically drained or filled if the setpoints are exceeded.
The APM Process Meter is used to provide digital display of the material volume in the
silo, using the analog output from a
The signal from the sensor is scaled into the measurement units cubic metres, and the annunciator customised to m3 , all via the easy-to-use software. Due to the irregular shape of the silo, the 20-point non linear table is used to correct the non-linear signal from the sensor.
The displayed value accurately shows the volume in the silo. High or low setpoints can be set, and the APM can be integrated into other systems for process control.
