Digital Panel Meters
Digital Panel Meters receive an input from a control process and then display it in a digital format for operators. Different panel meters can be selected to accommodate a variety of input signals from control applications. Panel meters also offer a variety of functions in addition to data display such as alarm outputs, timers, or heating and cooling control.

Digital panel meters are a crucial part of how operators interface with a system. These meters enable operators to monitor and even control system states. Our supply of digital panel meters is comprised of innovative meters from FMX and Delta. These meters focus on readability, functionality, reliability, and flexibility.

Selecting a Digital Panel Meter

There are a variety of factors that can go into the proper selection of a digital panel meter. Consider the following information to choose the right panel meter for your application:

What kind of input signal do you have?

One of the most important aspects of meter selection is what kind of signal the panel meter will be monitoring. Our panel meters accept a variety of input signals including:
  • • Thermocouple Input
  • • 3 Wire Platinum RTD
  • • Analog Input
What type of meter do you need?

Not every meter offers the same functionality. Your meter choice will depend on the type of signal being monitored and what that signal represents. We offer a wide variety of meters for a range of applications. Some examples of available meter types include:
  • • Multi Meters (Amps Volts Frequency)
  • • Process Controllers/Meters
  • • Temperature Controllers
  • • Counter/Timer/Tachometers
  • • CT Meters
  • • Shunt Meters
What are your physical size requirements?

In some cases, the physical size of the meter may be important for use with your application. Always make sure that the size of the meter and the required size of the cutout are within the bounds of your application.
