Description

DC signal conditioner board for Laureate digital panel metersMicro Series DC voltage and current panel meters with a DC signal conditioner board combine high accuracy with high read rate and a wide range of isolated output options for computer interface and control. Accuracy is 99.99% of full scale 1 count.

Used as a direct-reading DC voltmeter, the Micro DC meter provides a full-scale readout of 20,000 counts and five full-scale voltage ranges from 200.00 mV with 10 mV resolution to 660.0 V with 100 mV resolution. The 200.00 mV and 2.000 V ranges provide a high input impedance of 1 Gohm so as to minimize the load on the voltage signal. The maximum voltage which can be applied on the 20, 200 and 660 Vdc ranges is 660 Vac.

Used as a DC ammeter, the Micro DC meter provides a full-scale readout of 20,000 counts and four full-scale direct-reading current ranges from 2.0000 mA with 0.1 mA resolution to 5.000 A with 1 mA resolution. The 5.000 A range measures the IR drop across a built-in 10 mW current shunt.

Use with External Current Shunts

Digital ammeter used with an external current shunt

The Micro DC meter can be used with external current shunts, which typically produce 50 mV or 100 mV at their rated maximum current. Scaling from millivolts to amperes for a specific shunt value is easily accomplished from the front panel of the meter. The scalable readout is five full digits up to 99,999 counts. Since the voltage signal from a current shunt can be noisy, the meter provides a selectable, adaptive moving-average digital filter, as explained below.

All Ranges Precalibrated

All voltage and current ranges are calibrated at the factory, with calibration factors for each range stored in an internal EEPROM. This allows ranges to be changed without recalibrating the meter.

High Read Rate and Peak Capture

All Micro DC voltmeters use Concurrent Slope (US Pat 5,262,780) analog-to-digital conversion, which allows up to 60 or 50 conversions per second while integrating the signal over a full power cycle. High read rate is ideal for peak capture, real-time computer interface, and control.

The peak value of the input signal is automatically captured and may be displayed via a front panel pushbutton command or a control signal at the rear connector since the last meter reset. Other controls at the rear connector include meter hold, meter reset, and decimal point selection

Selectable Signal Filtering

The displayed readings and the data outputs can be separately selected to be either unfiltered or filtered.

  • An unfiltered selection updates after each conversion for fastest response.
  • A batch average filter selection averages each 16 conversions for an update every 1/4 sec.
  • An adaptive moving average filter selection provides a choice of 8 time constants from 80 ms to 9.6 s. When a significant change in signal level occurs, the filter adapts by briefly switching to the shortest time to follow the change, then reverts back to its selected time constant. Another choice is Auto, which provides an automatic time constant selection based on the signal noise characteristics.

Isolated Excitation Supply

5, 10 and 24 Vdc isolated excitation outputs are standard to power external devices, such as transducers or transmitters. In many cases, these outputs can eliminate the need for an external supply.

Built-in Flexibility

Plug-in isolated analog output, dual setpoint controller, and RS232/485 serial communications boards can upgrade Micro and Mighty Series meters from a simple monitor to system interface and control.

Micro Series meters can be powered from 95-240 Vac 10% and 95-370 Vdc, or optionally from 12-34 Vac and 10-48 Vdc. Any setup functions and front panel keys may be locked out for simplified usage and security. The popular 1/8 DIN version with 0.56" high digits is environmentally sealed to NEMA-4X (IP65) from the front when panel mounted, and is available with red or green LEDs.
