Worldwide, innovative, design and manufacturing company, Trumeter Technologies Ltd, have spent the last two years developing the latest Advanced Panel Meter (APM), with the emphasis on a product that is easy to use and easy to read.
Trumeter’s APM is capable of displaying information in both digital and bar graph format, giving the user an immediate visual indication of the measured parameter. Designed at their UK Engineering R&D facility, this unique range of products includes a Voltmeter, Ammeter and Frequency Meter. With offices in the UK and USA and representation in Malaysia, Trumeter are launching this outstanding product to the global market.
The APM has been specifically designed for engineers requiring a more effective and easier way of monitoring and displaying data and provides the highest level of accuracy. The 40 segment, curved bar graph display has a programmable scale, whilst the large 4 digit readout provides precision.
As expensive digital panel meters replace older analogue meters in many applications, due to their increased accuracy and availability of features, the Trumeter Advanced Panel Meter provides an appealing solution by offering a great number of features at a very competitive price.
A unique and ground-breaking feature of Trumeter’s innovative product is the immediate visual indication of critical parameters. Two independent alarm set points can be created based on specific requirements, and once the meter detects values within these critical ranges it can change or flash the backlight giving a clear visual warning. The two optional alarm outputs means total integration with other systems and PLCs. Whilst the programmable backlight colour can also be altered to suit any setting.
The brightness of the screen is adjustable and this combined with the large display, wide viewing angle (both horizontal and vertical) and high contrast, anti-glare LCD screen makes the APM extremely user-friendly. There is a separate Starburst display area for annunciators, custom messages and alarm information. The APM is less than 53 mm deep, is water proof from the front when used with the supplied gasket and is fully operational in temperatures ranging from -10 to +60°C. Trumeter have covered every angle with this, their latest offering, and what’s more, the software is free and requires no drivers.
Set to be launched worldwide on 2nd April 2014, the product is being developed as we speak, with Power Meter and Process Meter variants to follow on shortly. The APM from Trumeter will set new industry standards as the most easy to use and easy to read, multi-format, programmable panel meter on the market. The product is best seen through demonstration which can be arranged through your local Distributor – please contact your Trumeter office for details.
