Standard Specification for Solid State Bargraph Meters for Shipboard Use (Metric)
|Publication Date:||10 November 1996|
|ICS Code (Navigation and control equipment):||47.020.70|
1.1 This specification provides the requirements for design, construction, performance, and testing of solid state bargraph-type indicating meters.
1.2 The solid state bargraph meters covered by this specification are intended for use in shipboard applications of electrical measurement. This specification covers the requirements and quality assurance provisions for solid state, panel-type (edgewise), and rectangular switchboard-type instruments, which use light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for bargraph indication and optional digital displays.
1.3 This specification's requirements may be invoked for specialized measurement applications where another quantity, for example, position, weight, concentration of a trace element in an atmosphere sample, and so forth, is converted to electrical energy for display and measurement. Special dial markings shall be specified for such cases.
1.4 The values stated in metric units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
