In many processes, it is useful to know how much charge (such as Ampere Hours, Ampere Minutes or Coulombs) has passed. For example, electroplating processes normally have an ideal coulomb value. The amount of material deposited depends on the current and the time the current has flowed.
These digital panel meters multiply the average electroplating current which has flowed, by the amount of time it has flowed. This gives a readout in:-
- Ampere Hours, or
- Coulombs, or
- Ampere minutes …
To see the instantaneous current whenever you want, wire an external pushbutton to a pair of the meter’s terminals. You can also add useful control options, such as:-
- Dual or quad alarm relays for chemical dosing and shutoff
- Pulsed output relays
- Isolated analogue retransmission
- RS232 or RS422 data output
See the detailed technical operating manual here. Our SPC4 environmental covers are ideal accessories to protect your meter from the corrosive atmosphere in the plating room. NEMA4X / IP67 protection, with corrosion resistant materials ensure that your meters will have a long, trouble-free life.
