Meters & Avionics


Avionic mechanisms are used inside avionic meters and systems that include communications, navigation, the display and management of multiple systems, and the hundreds of systems that are fitted to aircraft to perform individual functions.  

Avionics is derived from the combination of the words “aviation” and “Electronics”.  The avionics installed in an aircraft or spacecraft can include engine controls, flight control systems, navigation, communications, flight recorders, lighting systems, threat detection, fuel systems, electro-optic (EO/IR) systems, weather radar, performance and more.

Jewell Instruments is a leading provider of traditional electro-mechanical avionic meter mechanisms and instruments. We perform all assembly, calibration, and testing in-house. Let our engineering and manufacturing teams extend the capabilities of your staff.


Panel Meters

Analog and digital panel meters are instruments that receive information from an input signal and measure and display that information. Panel meters are often mounted inside of instrument panels. They are frequently used to measure temperature but can also measure speed, pressure, current, and a number of other variables. Chances are that you’ve used an air conditioner that allows you to see the temperature on the instrument panel; this information is displayed with a panel meter.

While they were once widely used and still remain appropriate in certain circumstances, analog panel meters have been largely replaced with digital panel meters, which are far more accurate and easier to read. Analog panel meters can be used for measuring weight, speed, or acceleration but you’ll need a digital panel meter when what you’re measuring requires a high level of accuracy. Digital panel meters are able to measure in different scales at once, unlike their analog counterparts. Furthermore, because digital panel meters give you a digital reading you can increase accuracy by switching the output to a smaller or larger measuring unit.

Analog and Digital Panel Meters are used in a wide variety of products and applications such as stereo equipment, hand-held and benchtop instruments, electrical panels, battery and power indicators, temperature and other environment conditions, process equipment and instruments, and on automobiles, boats and trains

Jewell Instruments offers a wide range of moving iron, moving coil, and stepper motor analog panel meters in A&M, Emico, Jewell, and Modutec S

eries. Our analog panel meters are designed to measure AC and DC current. Many of these analog panel meter models are CE and UL approved and provided in custom and standard sizes, input ranges, and scales. They are available in different designs, materials of construction, colored dials, and so on, so you can choose them depending on your application requirements.
