Another Weschler Bites the Dust

Continuing with our purview of Weschler products, the VX252 has also reached the end of the analog road. These vertical display ammeters were invented during the analog age’s peak in the 1970’s and 80’s with the intent for broad distribution in Nuclear Power Plants of the time. Where we stand now, nearly fifty years later, both the panel meter itself and the Nuclear Industry have inexorably changed beyond any measure by which an analog might be useful.

Want an instrument that does measure up? Meeting the challenges of both analog obsolescence and the expensive leaps of 21st century meter technology, Otek offers the NTM-9, from our award-winning New Technology Series, as a 100% Form, Fit, and Function replacement for the Weschler VX252 for Class 1E safety related and nuclear qualified applications, as well as Mil-Specs 461, 167-1, 810F, 901C, and IEEE-344.
The NTM-9 is Cyber Security Compliant and follows our umbrella philosophy of Plug n’ Play—all you need to do is remove the Weschler VX252 from its panel mount and wire in the NTM-9; no lengthy outages, no new wiring (expect Serial I/O if desired), and only minimal training for your I & C operators.

Additional highlights of the NTM-9 include automatic tricolor bar graph with intensity control, 4 digit display, input fail alarm with runtime stamp, self-diagnostics, isolated serial I/O, USB/RS485, configurable bar direction, only 100mW@5VDC, math functions, and over thirty isolated input signals. The NTM-9 carries our lifetime warranty and is completely customizable to your application needs.

Analog obsolescence casts a long shadow—stand in the sun again with the NTM-9 and Otek. For more information call us at (520) 748-7900 or email us at
