Murata introduces the new DCM20 series of multifunction panel meters from Murata Power Solutions. For DC systems, these meters measure DC voltage and current, calculate power up to 96 kW, and display values either manually selected or continuously cycling. The miniature panel-mount product provides an input voltage range of 0.5 to 72 VDC, with 10 mV of resolution. The meter also supports current measurement ranges from 5 A to 1200 A when used with an external user-supplied resistive shunt. Targeted for use in 12 V, 24 V or 48 V systems, out-of-the-box accuracy of the product is +/-1 % for voltage and +/-2 % for current.
Packaged in a rugged, one-piece polycarbonate housing, with dimensions of 2.1”(h) x 1.43”(w) or 53.3 x 36.3 mm, the DCM20 fits in ‘0U’ and ‘1U’ racks making it perfect for laboratory instrumentation as well as industrial and telecom equipment. Threaded mounting studs and caged terminal blocks for application wiring ensure reliable operation in harsh environments. Applications for the product telecom power distribution systems and battery management.
