Jewell DG Series – Moving Coil & Rectifier 90° Scale

The moving coil, rectifier meters, DG 48/72/96/144 are housed in molded polycarbonate cases and are suitable for the measurement of AC currents and voltages. Moving coil rectifier instruments measure average values and are calibrated to indicate RMS values, assuming a sinusoidal waveform for frequencies from 40 to 10000 Hz (AC current for frequency range of 40 to 1000 Hz and AC voltage for frequency range of 40 to 1000 Hz. These instruments offer several advantages in switchboards and generating set panels. A number of meters can be mounted in a panel cut-out (mosaic mounting). Front glass, bezel & dial can easily be replaced

Additional Information


• Less VA burden
• Linear Scale
• Glass-filled polycarbonate housing (UL 94-V-0)
• Knife-edge pointer
• Easily replicable glass and bezel


Moving coil movement has pivots of very high hardness. Movement is suspended between spring-loaded sapphire jewels. Movement is properly shielded and critically damped by eddy currents induced in coil former.

Case Options

• Antiglare glass front fascia
• Red, yellow, blue, or white bezel color
• Front adjustable on-site red index pointer
• 15° to 165°C position of use available on request

Dial Options

• Blank dial with initial and end values marked
• Number or letter markings
• Basic divisions without numbering
• Red or green markings or bands
