PBUS-24-Bud-AIOIP66Enclosure-400.jpg

The new Bud AIO series is an exciting IP66 enclosure that answers many concerns that our customers have expressed to us in recent years.  One of the challenges of a highly rated IP enclosure is that to use it, since you must find ways to add in holes or slots for input or output or holes for mounting internal components, all of this risks compromising the IP rating if special gaskets are not used in mounting those input/output/components within and to the box.

Selecting a panel meter for a particular application can be a daunting task, given the wide variety of products that are available today. There are many factors to consider when making a decision. Let’s look at a few of the major items.

Function

Panel meters can be categorized by type, size, style or other criteria. One way to begin the selection process is to look at the meter’s function – what measurement is this meter making? Some common functions are ammeter, voltmeter, frequency meter, power meter, energy meter, counter, timer, temperature meter, process meter, and controller.
