Bestech Australia offer the AMH-762 digital panel meter, from Asahi Keiki. This model is a setpoint comparator and has high conversion rates of up to 4000 times/second.
Digital panel meters are used for various displays in a range of equipment and analogue-to-digital conversion in advanced control systems due to the recent progress in accurate digital measurement.
Digital panel meters provide a high level of measurement accuracy and are an alternative to analogue instruments. The digital panel meters give accurate readings at a glance.
The digital panel meters also have a system output function, which converts analogue signals from sensors to digital signals for direct input to equipment such as computers, recorders and computing units to facilitate recording and automatic control.
The AMH-762 digital panel meter has the following applications:
- Detecting the warping of printed circuit boards (when connected with laser displacement sensors)
- Detecting, measuring and then evaluating the length of lead wires extending from capacitors
- Helping in the inspection of riveting
- Evaluating the clearance of piston rings at high speed
Voltage supply is 24V DC or 90 to 264V AC, and outputs include RS-232C and RS-485. Accuracy is to ±0.1% of full scale for measurement displays.
