Description: This analog panel meter measures DC voltage from 0-5 volts with 2.5% accuracy. It has a clear and easy to read scale and an adjustable dial. These come in handy for measuring the output of sensors with 5V ranges.
The face of the meter is 45x45mm overall. The mounting hole should be 38mm. The overall depth of the meter is 35mm.

appeared to be broken, but may just be the zero adjust. (*accessible one you take off the clear plastic cover.) accuracy is a bit worse than expected- i am looking at closer to 5%-10% error. it does lend a kind of cool look though. I will revise if i see better result beyond “the breadboard”
I got this and I was expecting to a cheap plastic face, but the whole feels very sturdy, I’m not entirely sure however about the accuracy, this versus my multimeter gave me a +/- 0.25 volt reading, which in the grand scheme of things isn’t that big of a deal. Overall, it’s fantastic.
I seems to be working correctly. Th price is great.
McMaster Carr wants $100 for panel meters.
I expected the voltmeter to look same as it’s shown in the picture, but it wasn’t There are no adjusting screw in the real product as in the picture. I’m little bit frustrated.
I’m sorry. We try to keep up with out images as parts change. I’ll get these updated. If you would like a return please contact us at www.sparkfun.com/returns
I mistakenly thought there would be set screw, but turned out, wasn’t, my fault, didn’t read description…..But, otherwise well made, enough accurate meter, kinda cute, being so small. Okay, back to topic, since it’s DC meter, polarity matters, and it’s marked backside (negative is marked, but enough) Good if you need approximate reading, not that precise, just what I was looking though with.
These meters met my expectations for the project that they were intended for. Small size and accurate for analog meters.
