Current Shunt Panel Meter added to APM range

A digital panel meter specifically for current shunts used for measurement of current used DC circuits has been added to the Advanced Panel meter range of instruments.  The APM-SHUNT-APO accepts a highly accurate full range input signal of 0 to 1000 mV so can be used with standard 50mV, 75mV and 100 mV applications which are commonly used.

 

Current-Shunt-Panel-meter

The APM-SHUNT-APO maintains all the great features of the APM range  such as multi colour dynamic back light selection, 90 degree digital bar-graph, simple set up using the free APM configuration software & selectable digital or 4-20mA analogue outputs in a standard DIN 72 panel meter cut out package with IP65 environmental protection.

The APM-SHUNT-APO current shunt meter requires 12-24VAC/DC power supply, so is also suitable for use in automotive and marine applications.  For further information of the NEW APM current shunt digital panel meter please visit this link: Panel meter

 

New!! Current meter optimised for Current transformer inputs

The APM-CT-APO is a new APM panel meter optimised for 0-5 Amp secondary inputs from standard AC current transformers or CT’s.  The APM has the great features of numeric display with 90 degree digital bar-graph, adjustable back-light colour, colour change on threshold, flash back-light on alarm and integrate static digital outputs on threshold.  Or up to 2 re-transmission outputs via 4-20mA,  to external devices or systems.

New Mains Powered Volt, Frequency & Current Digital Panel Meter

The Truapm innovative range of panel meters for electrical measurement applications is now available with a multi-input Volt Frequency and Current panel meter with a 100-240VAC supply.

Features-M2-Voltmeter-Ammeters

The new APM-M2 Ammeter Voltmeter digital panel meter has 2 digital and a single analogue output as standard.  As with the entire TRU-APM range red, green or white back-lighting can be selected and a change of colour for alarm thresholds, so operators are instantly alerted to any alarm conditions.

The measuring range is 0-600 Volt AC DC RMS, 2-400 hz or 0-5A AC DC either direct for low voltage, or indirectly via a current transformer.

Input selection, range, back-light colour & descriptor is all configurable by PC software using standard USB printer cable.

Modbus RTU Display Panel Meter

The STR571 Modbus display is a master or slave Modbus RTU display which can read, indicate and allow writing to a number of registers via Modbus RTU protocol on multiple RS485 networks. The STR571 can indicate between 1 and 4 registers on a single page along with tags and engineering units. Pages can automatically scan from 1 to the next or be manually indexed.
digital panel meter Modbus
In Master mode, the STR571 Modbus panel display can read the registers in a number of 16 or 32 bit formats & rescale the values.  Alternatively a register value can index preset messages via the enumerate function.

The STR571 Modbus panel display has 2 x 2A relay outputs which can be assigned individually to any number of its input registers & a potentiometer input which can be used for simple set point adjustment of any of its registers used for write commands.

Set up of the STR571 Modbus RTU display can be performed a number of ways. By frontal keypad and english abbreviated set up menu, by Anroid smartphone using NFC function and free Pixsys APP which is available on google play or micro USB flash card.

 

 

 

Frequency Meter Added to Range of Panel Meters

Our new Truapm-Freq digital panel meter with frequency input is added to the range of unique digital panel meters.

The Truapm-Freq frequency meter accepts inputs from both AC and DC signals, from 30 – 400 Hz up to maximum voltage of 526 Volts.

Due to flexibility of program software, the frequency meter can be programmed to measure zero crossing AC wave forms or complex DC wave forms.  This is enabled by settings in the free configuration software.  Setting lower and upper threshold settings the instrument can measure DC.

All the devices in the APM range are available with optional outputs & these are no exception.  So as with all TRUAPM digital panel meters the unit is available with 2 switched or linear outputs, 500mA static, maz 24VDC or 0-50mA (4-20mA) respectively.  These are select-able in the software

Digital panel meters with Android smart phone configuration.

Pixsys STR  model digital panel meters are setting new standards in panel meter technology.

There are 3 models in the range.  The STR551 which is a universal analog input which includes inputs such as thermocouple, RTD, NTC thermistor, 4-20mA, 0-10V, mV and potentiometer.

The STR561 is a strain gauge input version which provides the bridge excitation & is used for weighing applications.

Both these models have a choice of numeric and  bargraph, numeric only or trend as primary display.  The display orientation can be vertical or horizontal this is programmed in the menu.

Hardware features such as 2 relay outputs, 2 digital inputs, 4-20mA re transmission, Modbus RTU are also standard.

STR  panel meter

The last panel meter in the range is the Model STR571.  This is a Modbus RTU only digital panel meter.  It has 2 ports, one is a master and one is a slave.  Up to 8 registers can be managed via read or write and 1 to 4 can be displayed per page depending on how large you would like the digits to be.  The STR571 has 2 alarm relays which can be assigned to individual or all registers.  There is also a potentiometer input should the user require simple pot rotation set point adjustment, rather than set point entry via keypad

All STR panel meter  models have to unique feature of being smart phone programmable via NFC.  Using the MyPixsys app available from Google Play, simply touch the rear of the smart phone onto the bezel of the panel meter to read device parameters, edit then touch to download.  A very fast method which eliminates possibility for errors.
