A panel meter is an instrument that displays an input signal in either a digital or analog form. Many panel meters also include alarm options as well as the ability to connect and transfer data to a computer. OMEGA's iSeries panel meters are available with an ethernet option which allows the panel meter reading to be accessed across a local area network (LAN) or even through the internet.
Since panel meters are generally mounted inside an instrument panel, the panel must be cut to accommodate the panel meter. In order to provide interchangeability between panel meters, most panel meters are designed to standard DIN sizes. The most common DIN sizes are shown below.
