The CT meter can be used for a wide range of applications where AC current management is required, including:
– motor control
– heating control
– industrial power supplies
– energy management
The CT meter is ideal for applications where accuracy and performance monitoring are crucial. The 5A high resolution input provides readings of 0.5% accuracy, for precision measurement and control. It is designed to be used in conjunction with a CT to measure AC current up to and above 10,000A. It can be used with a CT that has a primary that matches your maximum input and a secondary (output) of 5A. The resulting meter reading will be accurate to 0.5% plus the CT accuracy.
The LCD display combines the best of both traditional-analog and modern-digital panel meters. The bar-graph scale allows critical parameters to be instantly recognised while the starburst display shows precise readings. This unique display helps increase productivity, improve safety and enhance the look of the final panel unit, PLC or machine.
The APM CT meter’s dynamic backlighting, in conjunction with set-points, visually alerts operators when a parameter is out of range. The screen can be set to change color, flash, change intensity or display custom messages.
With its digital and analog outputs, it provides easy connectivity with to other systems in the process. The backlit LCD screen is high-contrast with a wide viewing angle and is sealed to IP65 , NEMA 12 and NEMA 4. This makes it ideal for environments where visibility can be difficult.
The CT meter comes with 15 pre-installed configuration setups for a wide range of applications. Alternatively, the panel meter can be user-customised to unlock its full potential. As well the programmable scale and annunciators, set points and alerts can all be customised to display critical parameters exactly as they are needed by the user. This is done with the APMs easy-to-use and freely available configurator software.
