Panel Meters Uses

About digital panel gauges

Digital panel gauges are digital displays designed to be mounted on a panel, e.g. B. a dashboard were developed. They typically read some type of input, be it voltage, current, or resistance, and display its value digitally. Often this input is a measurement from a sensor that is converted and displayed as temperature, pressure, or some other system variable. These gauges can also act as simple controls that trigger a
switch, or perform a simple function when the reading reaches a preset reading.


To select a digital panel meter , the industrial meter Buyers should first decide what they want to do.

Basic Gauge Output

The basic function that all digital gauges perform is to take an input signal and convert it to a displayed value. This input comes first from a sensor in the process or system and is sent to the device via the control panel to which the meter is connected. The panel supplies the device with power and inputs for the display.

Additional Outputs

In addition to basic display, some digital gauges have optional interface or control capabilities.


Once a buyer has determined what features are required, the actual meter type must also be considered. Digital panel meters are differentiated by type based on their display and lighting technology.


The display of digital panel meters is numeric or alphanumeric.


The lighting used in the digital display is LED or LCD.

Signal Input Type

In order to function properly, the device must be designed to accept the analog input sent to it. Input types include:
