LFE/api 195 Series

“Biglook” Style Analog Relay Meters


LFE/api 195 Series, Meter Relay

  • Plug-in control module
  • Long life lamp operation
  • Plastic front and base
  • On/Off or alarm control
  • Optical setpoints
Product Description:
These meters feature extra wide scales, big bold numerals above the scale and divisions for unobstructed reading. Tapered needle sharp pointers and shadow free acrylic covers help to pinpoint values. Pointers for upper and lower limits are color codes for easy identification. The 195 Series Meter-Relays contain an exclusive light sensitive transistor switch that provides the ultimate in control simplicity and reliability. This switch controls the load relays with no pointer contacts or mechanical interference in the meter mechanism.
Specifications :
Scaling: Customized to any scaling desired, from linear to specialized Cos Ø, square root distributions, with color applications for visual emphasis and to any desired engineering units.
Specific accuracies
Basic Accuracy: ±2.0% of full scale basic accuracy class.
Rectifier Type Meters: ±3% of full scale basic accuracy class.
Meter relay Specifcations
Alarm Control: Each realy is engineered for on-off (automatic reset) control.
Power: 117 VAC operation (50 or 60 Hz), no special power supply needed
Lamp: Long lamp life, under rated voltage operated, 5 year life expectancy
Safe Operation: In case of loss of control power, setpoint relays immediately de-energize
Setpoint Coincidence ±2% of full scale at 117 VAC power
Repeatability: 0.3% of full scale
Setpoint Travel: 100% of full scaledouble setpoint can be positioned within 2 mechanical degrees of each other- 2.2% of full scale
Contact Rating: 5 AAC non-inductive at 120 V5 ADC non-inductive at 28 V

0.2 ADC non-inductive at 125 V

Load Relay: DPDT per setpoint
Position of use: Vertical (scale) standardor to specified angle or position
Full scale deflection: 90 °
Full scale length:
21⁄2” 2.06”
31⁄2” 2.88”
41⁄2” 3.93”
Movement: 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.
Case: ABS plastic, Black with grey back
Cover: Polycarbonate plastic cover and window.
Overload rating: 1 second- 1000% -DC A ; ≤ 100 VDC -1000%, >100 VDC @ 200% ; 150% AC A and ACVContinous – 150% except DCV @ 120%
OverShoot: 20% Maximum
