Traditional square meters with the look of the 80s and a low price tag. These have operating zero adjusters and scales printed on translucent plastic, permitting diffused back-lighting using either the external light kit described in “Options” or custom lighting. Installation holes and cutouts are interchangeable with domestic and foreign designs, making product improvement quick and easy.
The Modutec 1000 takes the guesswork out of reading a small, low-cost, digital panel meter. These meters have an over-range indication of the rated value and auto-zero when there is no input signal. They also feature auto polarity which visually clues the user to a negative reading.
The Modutec 1000 features a 0.3-inch digit display in red or green for hard-to-read applications. Choose from bezel or window mount snap-on bezel – neither of which need extra hardware or panel holes. At 1.34″ x 0.75″ and panel depth less than 0.8″ these meters are easy to read, small units that fit into almost any application.
Get digital accuracy with an analog footprint. The DW Series is a cost-effective solution to retrofitting an analog panel cutout with a digital meter. Custom nomenclature available. Easy hook up from the rear with four studs. The MODUTEC DW Series is available as DC and AC Power Monitors and Process Monitors.
Attractive contemporary designs with the typical Modutec low aspect ratio. All have operating zero adjusters, and scales printed on translucent plastic, permitting beautifully diffused lighting using either the external light kit described in “options” or a custom light source.
Modutec MC1 movements are technically advanced and offer outstanding features not found in other 250° movements. Their unusually small size and their refined taut-band suspension mean high performance in the area of accuracy, tracking, and repeatability. Their unique design includes shock limiters and vibration stops which combined with optional Fluidyne®
viscous damping gives them exceptional durability and stability in difficult environments.
Mounting is usually by means of three tapped brass standoffs which are swaged to either the front or the back of the movement, as ordered, permitting installation within its 1.25″ O.D.
Dials can be mounted to standoffs on the front of the movement; however, MC1 movements are usually ordered with a universal mounting plate (see drawing) installed. This not only serves as a dial mount but also coordinates with the mounting requirements of many domestic and imported movements. Note that front standoffs are not available when the universal mounting plate is installed.
Standard movements come without front and back dust caps. Either or both will be installed when specified on order.
Useful space-saving meters in two sizes, interchangeable with many costly d’Arsonval meters or moving magnet meters from other sources. All sizes feature flush-to-panel covers without the bulge that disfigures many edgewise meters. A low-cost option provides internal illumination through a translucent dial – sophisticated lighting unusual in any economy meter, let alone an edgewise type.
The PB Series was designed to meet the expressed need of many customers for meters with a hard-hitting, big-dial area “industrial” look.
PB Series meters are available in many sizes, types, and ranges. Mounting stud configuration complies with ANSI standards: the number of studs is as follows: 1½” meters – 2 studs; 2½” & 3½” meters – 3 studs; 4½” meters – 4 studs. Meters in sizes 1½”, 2½”, and 3½” can be supplied in 4- stud versions at no extra cost.
AC meters in this series are offered in both d’Arsonval (rectifier type) and iron-vane versions. The latter has the virtue of greater standard accuracy and relative insensitivity to input distortion, while the rectifier type is less affected by frequency variations.
The S Series Surface Mount Panel Meters are clean-cut meters with straightforward design and pleasing aspect ratio are leaders of the Modutec line and add distinction to any instrument or control panel. Available in five sizes and a wide variety of types and ranges, they resolve many problems for the equipment designer and are always a solid choice for function and appearance.
AC Meters in this series are available in both moving coil (rectifier type) and iron vane versions. The latter has the virtue of being relatively insensitive to input distortion, while the rectifier type is less affected by frequency variations.
Windo-mount™ is a sophisticated design that has been found universal acceptance since being introduced many years ago by Modutec. The W series meters are easily installed per applications bulletin AB6-1; when so installed the meter cover is flush with the panel surface, with the dial easily read.
W series meters are available in the same ranges and at the same prices as the S series meters. They offer an excellent functional appearance, plus the looks enhancing edge options available. These meters are very popular for stereo and broadcast equipment.
The World Meters incorporate Modutec’s third-generation taut-band/moving-coil movement – unmatched in any competitive production meter, anywhere – with a space-efficient case and dial configuration that takes about 30% less space than conventional panel meters. The result is a rugged and accurate meter with unique and desirable features, at a very economical price.
