Re: Replacing analog panel meters.

Hi David,

I absolutely understand- especially being an eyeglass wearer with progressive lenses... [like bifocals without the line...] I can only see up close through the bottom of the lenses.. now try working on something overhead. My neck won't bend that far back, so sometimes it is better without the glasses...

I mention that because unless I'm looking at something straight on, I am only focused in one eye.

My AC analog meters [volts and amps] are on that panel that resides on an athwartship bulkhead in a locker. I can only see them from askew when I open that locker door- unless I stick my head in that small locker... which I don't do.

That is another case where digital meters would be useful if I needed extremely accurate readings.

Have fun perfecting your systems to suit your needs.

Cheers! Bill
