Meters, Readouts and Indicators

Any type of equipment used to display information in various formats including, digital readouts, indicator lights or panel meters.

Analog Panel MetersAnalog panel meters measure and display processes and electrical variables with a simple dial display.

AnnunciatorsAnnunciators and graphic display panels disclose the layout and annunciate the status and measurement parameters of industrial processes, security and fire alarms of buildings and manufacturing facilities, power distribution networks, and other operations.

Audible AlarmsAudible alarms provide an audible indication of a hazardous situation.

Audio Transducers and BuzzersAudio transducers and buzzers are used in electronic equipment, toys and various warning devices as the sounding component.

Bar Graph ArraysBar graph arrays are light emitting diodes (LEDs) that are used for solid state metering in applications such as audio monitoring, telecommunications, and instrumentation.

Commercial Matrix DisplaysCommercial matrix displays include any type of display used in commercial applications.

Digital BargraphsDigital bargraphs measure process and electrical variables such as pressure, flow, temperature, speed, current, and voltage. There are two main types of products: light emitting diode (LED) and liquid crystal display (LCD).

Digital LED DisplaysDigital LED displays are segmented or dot matrix displays allowing for numeric only and alphanumeric character representation.

Digital Panel MetersDigital panel meters measure and display processes and electrical variables via an alphanumeric digital readout.

Digital ReadoutsDigital readouts are specialized displays for position and dimension readings from inspection gages and linear scales, or rotary encoders on machine tools. 

Digitizer TabletsDigitizer tablets or graphics tablets are pressure-sensitive data input devices that allow users to select and draw images with a special pen called a stylus or a mouse-like device called a puck.

Flat Panel DisplaysFlat panel displays (FPDs) are thin, flat, electronic devices used to display data. They are commonly used in notebook computers. Most styles include the housing and ports necessary to connect them to a computer.

LED Message DisplaysMessage LED displays are typically commercial or industrial signs. They allow for larger characters and longer viewing distances than their smaller digital cousins.

Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) ModulesLiquid crystal display (LCD) modules are used at the component level in place of less efficient displays such as cathode ray tubes (CRTs). These modules do not include housing and must be incorporated into a larger instrument or system.

Pilot Lights and Indicator LightsPilot lights and indicator lights are indicating lights for machines or instruments. Most indicators favor the use of LEDs or incandescent lamps.

Stack Lights and Machine LightsStack lights and machine lights are used for alarm and machine status indication. They can be supplied with audible alarms and be used as flashers or steady light configurations.

Touch Screen DisplaysTouch screen displays are user-friendly input devices. The user touches the screen and the input is communicated directly to the computer.

Vacuum Fluorescent DisplaysVacuum fluorescent displays (VFD) provide high brightness, wide viewing angles, and relatively low cost.

Warning LightsWarning lights provide a visual indication of a hazardous situation.
