Panel Meter
by Shurite
AC & DC, Voltmeters, Ammeters, Frequency Meters

Don't operate your backup or alternative power electrical system blind!  These economical panel meters are for mounting in your own equipment so you can see what is happening.  Perfect for monitoring ac or dc system voltages, currents or frequency.  If you have electronic loads that are sensitive to voltage or frequency variations that occur with small portable generators this is the solution.  In most cases these meters are full rated so no shunts or current transformers are required.

AC and DC Ammeters, voltmeters and AC frequency meters are available.  Meters are 2-1/2" rectangular, 5% accuracy and fit into 2-1/16" diameter holes.   Note that frequency meters and two ranges of ac voltmeters come standard with expanded scales for high resolution reading.  Polystyrene cases with metal scales, white field, printed black, age and moisture resistant, install through front of panel.  Made from USA components and assembled in Dominican Republic.

Following meters are available and can be ordered using drop-down menu below.  The meters shown as bold italic normally ship in a couple days from our stock.  Other models take a little longer.  Some other ranges are available as special order at added cost.

Hour Meters (not Shurite) are quartz controlled for accurate time measurement on both 50Hz and 60Hz and even on dc.  Mount in same size cutout as other meters and includes hold-in collar.  Connections are made with slip-on terminals.

AC ammeters for high current applications come with donut current transformer for slipping over heavy power conductors.  Dimensions: window diameter 0.64", overall diameter 1.99", thickness 1.25", 1% accuracy class at 60Hz (except 50:5 is 2%).

Use the table immediately below if you are not sure which ac ammeter to use for your generator:

20A  120Vac 2500 (1) 0-20A 20A  120/240Vac 5000 (2) 0-20A
30A  120Vac 3750 (1) 0-30A 30A  120/240Vac 7500 (2) 0-30A
50A  120/240Vac 12000 (2) 0-50A
75A  120/240Vac 18000 (2) 0-75A
100A  120/240Vac 25000 (2) 0-100A
200A  120/240Vac 50000 (2) 0-200A

Shopping cart will apply price adder (listed in drop-down menu below) for frequency meters, ac current transformers and hour meters which cost more than other meters.  

NOTE that use of ammeters for reading values less than 25% of full scale not recommended.  That means we DO NOT recommend using 0-200A meters for measuring the load on your 200A utility service.  Typical loads on a 200A service are less than 50A and you will not be able to read those values accurately.
