The low-cost and ultra-low-power single-channel voltmeter features a sleek monochrome E Ink display readable even in extreme sunlight while offering a very low power consumption.
The PanelPilot SGD 21-B comes with a 2.1-inch dot-matrix display with a 250×122-pixel resolution. The product takes advantage of the company’s innovative PanelPilot B Windows-based platform, which allows users to configure and customize a range of Lascar compatible displays with the click of a mouse. The use of pre-loaded display layout templates, which are configurable for further customization, enables users to get up and running very quickly, without writing any code.
For the new PanelPilot SGD 21-B, the software platform enables users to choose from a selection of analogue and digital voltmeter apps, and then customize labels, scaling and alarms for their own specific application. The device allows the setting of two alarm levels with a dedicated alarm output and a configurable digital I/O pin. A splash screen can be added to display on power-up. Once the app is complete, it can be uploaded to the SGD 21-B display using a USB cable.
Key to the product is its 4 to 9V DC power supply and its very low power consumption, which means it can be used in mobile applications that are powered by batteries. Additional specifications include: dimensions of 73.8 x 37.5 x 10.8mm; and an operating temperature range of 0 to +40°C.
