May 7th, 2020:
We have just released our May 2020 Newsletter. Read on to see what we have in store this month. Or checkout the full version online HERE!

We are now into the month of May and nearly halfway through the year! And with the month of May comes National Teacher Appreciation Day (May 5th) and National Teacher Appreciation Week (May 4th - May 8th). So in honor of these days, we thought we would take the opportunity to teach you, our customer, about a few of the products and services that we offer. (Quiz to follow in a future e-blast!)

Megger MIT420/2 Insulation & Continuity Tester

Laurel Electronics L40 Universal Input DPM

The Laurel Electronics L40 is a low-cost, universal meter for 65 user-selectable analog input signal types and ranges. These include DC voltage and current, AC RMS voltage and current, process signals (4-20 mA, 0-10V), thermocouple (10 types, °C or °F), RTD (6 types, °C or °F), thermistors (NTC or PTC), resistance (0-5k or 0-50k ohms), and potentiometer inputs. The same meter handles all of these signal types with no need for a plug-in signal conditioner board. The meter's universal power supply accepts voltages from 18 to 265V, AC or DC, so that power can be 24 DCV or AC power in any country. The meter conforms to the popular 1/8 DIN size standard and features four 0.56" (14.2 mm) high red LED digits. The display is user scalable for input types other than temperature.

Extensive software features add flexibility to this low cost meter. Programmable features include five levels of display brightness, min and max capture, dual scaling selectable by an external control input, a deadband around 0 for AC measurements, a moving average digital filter, a "count by" function, hysteresis for alarm operation, a user-configurable fast access menu, and selectable password protection. Further flexibility is provided by 1 or 2 optional output boards, which can be added at any time.


  • Universal power: 18-265 ACV/DCV
  • 1/8 DIN case with 3 front panel keys
  • Display: 4 red LED digits, 0.56" (14.2 mm)
  • Typical accuracy: 0.2% of full scale
  • Removable screw-clamp connectors
  • External control input
  • 1 or 2 optional mechanical relays, 8A, 250ACV
  • Optional Isolated analog output
  • Optional RS485 Modbus RTU data output
  • 65 User-selectable ranges:
    • AC RMS voltage: 60.0 mV, 200.0 mV, 2.000V, 20.00V, 200.0V, 400V
    • AC RMS current: 20.00 mA, 5.00A AC
    • DC voltage: ±60.0 mV, ±200.0 mV, ±2.000V, ±20.00V, ±200.0V, ±400V
    • DC current: ±20.00 mA, ±5.00A
    • Process: 4-20 mA, 0-10V with 15V, 30 mA excitation output
    • Thermocouple types: K, J, E, N, L, C, R, S, B, T
    • RTD types: Pt100, Pt500, Pt1000, Ni100, Ni200, Ni1000
    • Thermistor types: NTC, PTC
    • Resistance: 0-5.000 kΩ, 0-50.00 kΩ
