Laureate™ True RMS AC Voltage & Current Meter with 1 Cycle Update at 50/60 Hz
200 mV - 600 V and 2 mA - 5 A full-scale ranges
The Laureate™ True RMS meter is a 60,000 count digital panel meter with exceptional performance at half the price of a bench top meter. It can measure true RMS voltage or current of AC signals where there is considerable distortion of the waveform, such as rectifier outputs or waveforms chopped by an SCR, TRIAC or transistor circuit, as illustrated.
AC or DC coupling is jumper selectable on the signal conditioner board. AC coupling accommodates signals from 10 Hz to 10 kHz and is suitable for applications such as measuring AC ripple on a DC power supply. DC coupling accommodates signals from 0 to 10 kHz. Multiple integral cycles are averaged for signals above 50/60 Hz. A single cycle is captured for signals from 3 Hz to 50/60 Hz. Below 3 Hz and at DC, the capture rate is 3/sec.
Use with current Transformers. High common mode rejection allows stable readings with current shunts located on the high side of the line. Five amp input capability allows the output of 5A current transformers to be applied directly to the meter, with no need for a stepdown transformer. The meter reading can easily be scaled for the current transformer ratio. Digital filtering is selectable for noisy signals.
Designed for system use. Optional plug-in boards for communications and control include Ethernet and other serial communication boards, dual or quad relay boards, and an isolated analog output board. Laureates may be powered from 85-264 Vac or optionally from 12-32 Vac or 10-48 Vdc. The display is available with red or green LEDs. The 1/8 DIN case meets NEMA 4X (IP65) specifications from the front when panel mounted. Any setup functions and front panel keys can be locked out for simplified usage and security. All power and signal connections are via UL / VDE / CSA rated screw clamp plugs.
