What is a digital panel indicator?

A digital panel indicator, also known as a digital panel meter, digitally processes measurement data such as an analog signal or a pulse signal, and then converts and displays the data. They can also act as interfaces by performing operations such as comparisons with user-set values and transmitting data to computers and PLCs.

OMRON digital panel indicators have good visibility in the field, are easy to use, are waterproof, and conform to international standards. Here are a few examples from our range.

Voltage and current input

These digital panel meters are ideal for measuring, displaying, and judging analog values such as AC/DC voltages or currents. The K3MA-J series process meter has a supply voltage of either 100 to 240VAC or 24VAC/VDC, high-quality display and a short depth of 80mm. The K3HB-X series process indicator panel meter is ideal for discriminating and displaying measurements, with a clear and easy-to-use colour-change display and a sample rate of 50Hz.

Load cell input

This digital panel meter is ideal for measuring pressures, loads, torques, weights, or other values from load cell signal inputs. It is also ideal for criteria judgments for automatic equipment and separators. Our K3HB-V weighing indicator panel meter is an ideal indicator for OK/NG judgements in automated and picking machines, measuring factors such as pressure, load, torque and weight.

Pulse input

The K3MA-F is a frequency/rate panel meter with a supply voltage of either 100 to 240VAC or 24VAC/VDC, a high-quality display and depth of 80mm. The K3HB-P timer interval indicator measures time, passing speed or two-point cycles with a digital input and easy-to-use display. Our K3HB-C is a high-speed up/down counting pulse indicator with a sample rate up to 50kHz.

Temperature Input

These meters are ideal for displaying and judging temperatures. OMRON’s K3HB-H temperature indicators with analogue input feature a clear and easy-to-use colour-change display, IP66 housing and a sample rate of 50Hz. The K3MA-L is a temperature meter with a supply voltage of either 100 to 240VAC or 24VAC/VDC, equipped with a high-quality display and short depth of 80mm.

Voltage, current and pulse input

These meters help you downsize equipment and control panels. They can measure DC voltages, currents, NPN pulses, and small voltage inputs. The K3GN 1/32 digital panel meter covers a wide variety of applications with its three main functions: process meter, RPM processor/tachometer and digital data display for PC/PLC. Configuration is easy and the design is advanced and compact.
