-This video detail how to setup the Trumeter ADM Graphical panel meter alarm setpoint and configure the outputs.
These meters can be setup for voltmeter, ammeter of Frequency meter and provide analog meter-style visual and accurate numeric readings.
User-selectable measurement options include 0-600 AC or DC voltage, current at 0-5A direct or 0-9,999A via transducer, and frequency from 2 to 400 Hz. The panel meter provides two independent alarm outputs and two fully scaled analog monitor outputs.
With a wide horizontal and vertical viewing angle, the 40-segment programmable bar graph display has a four-character custom message/alarm area, a large 4-digit measurement display area and a starburst display area for annunciators and alarm information.
The dynamic display backlight can be set for brightness and to flash or change color (red, green, white) at a specific measurement range. Two LCD options are available, positive LCD for bright conditions or negative LCD for dark environments.
Trumeter ADM panel meters feature two setpoint alarms that can easily be configured using the ADM Configurator software. See this link above to download the software, now. In the software you have a tab for each alarm. Here you can define the type of physical output for this alarm. These can be used to output to a PLC, an audible alarm, or any other monitoring device. If you set this up for analog output, here is where you would setup the scale for your 4-20 ma signal. Here you define the alarm condition. I am setting my alarm 1 condition to be when the voltage drops below 12 Volts, which is the midpoint of my scale. By checking here, you can assign if SP1 turns on or off based upon this alarm condition. Now, if you don’t want the physical output to turn on or off just uncheck this box, here. This defines how the Backlight changes based upon this alarm. I am selecting it to flash Red when this alarm is active. Here is where you are going to define your alarm text. This text will replace the message shown here while in alarm 1condition. Now, that sets up for Alarm 1. Alarm 2 is independent, but sets up just the same but make sure to note that the Alarm 2 condition has priority over alarm 1. This just means that if Alarm 1 and Alarm 2 are active at the same time, Alarm 2 is the one that will display on the panel. To send this configuration to the panel, select here and then select to write the configuration. Now, when my panel goes into alarm 1 condition it looks like this.
