Product Description:
DEIF has an extensive range of 48, 72, 96 and 144mm , long scale style panel meters offering
measurement of all electrical and electronic parameters. Meters are shock resistant
and vibration proof and supplied with terminal covers. A selection of slide in dials
and customised options are available.

Longscale Indicators to read temperature values, usually remotely with RTD or
thermocouple sensors supplied by the customer. RTD (Resistance Temperature
Detector) indicators measure the change in resistance of the sensor. A 2 or 3 wire
system may be used. Thermocouple indicators accept standard millivolt input
signals. Cold junction compensation is provided and thermocouple break indication
is incorporated.

Watt and Var meters self contained and are available to measure active power
and reactive power in both balanced and unbalanced, single and 3 phase 3 or 4
wire systems. These Wattmeters are ideal for clear precise analog indication of
power in applications such as power generation, industrial control panels and
power distribution.

Phase Angle meters indicate the phase displacement between current and
voltage. Used in applications where the phase angle must be monitored, for example
with tariffs having VAr penalties, or to optimise generator power delivery.
The measuring system comprises a moving coil indicator and a phase angle

Where manual parallelling of two A.C. systems is necessary, the frequency of both
systems can be monitored by a Synchroscope. The systems are synchronised when
the pointer is stationary in the 12 o’clock position. The instrument is rated for
continuous operation and connection, and silicon oil damping is employed.

Position of use: Vertical (position) standardor to specified angle or position
Full scale deflection: 240 °
Movements: Taut Band
The absence of friction
resulting from this permits greater sensitivities
and provides more rugged meters.Common
failures of conventional meters subjected to
shock testing are cracked jewels and/or
blunted pivots.
Pivot and Jewel
In this design the coil and pointer are
supported by polished steel pivots at each
end which fit into jewel bearings. Pivot and
jewel meters are recommended for high vibration
environments because of the
mechanism’s inherent stability and strength.
Accuracy and repeatability are almost equal
to the taut-band’s, and good performance
from the pivot and jewel construction is the
reason for its long popularity.
