    Abstract

    This specification provides the requirements for design, construction, performance, and testing of solid state bargraphtype indicating meters. 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. Bargraph meters shall be classified by type and style. The type designation defines the physical configuration of the meter and the scale. The style designation defines the meters display attributes as follows: bargraph display, and digital display. Meters shall be examined visually and mechanically to verify that materials, design, construction, physical dimensions, workmanship, and markings are as specified.

It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    Significance and Use

    1. Scope

    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.
