LM15 OWNER'S MANUAL
Model LM15; Self-Powered Ammeter in series connection with AC Loads supplied
by typical 115VAC, 208VAC, 220VAC, or 240VAC service that is protected by
a current limiting device such as a fuse or circuit breaker in which the
current supplied through the unit is limited to 15 Amperes RMS with crest factors
up to 4. Measurement is for 50 to 60 Hertz applications only and will not provide
indication of DC currents.
Circuit Current not to exceed 15 Amperes RMS continuous, 50-60 Hz AC.
Voltage not to exceed 240 VAC service connection to ground.
This unit is intended to be panel installed for Indoor Use,
Altitude: 2,000 meters maximum, Ambient Temperature: 40 C maximum
Relative Humidity: 93% maximum, Installation Category III, Pollution Degree 2
1) Ensure all voltage sources are removed prior to installation for safety.
2) Unit is intended to be mounted into an enclosure with a flat panel with a
cut-out of 0.965" (24.5MM) square with electrical connections placed within the
enclosure to ensure electrical safety.
3) Determine proper orientation of unit Face prior to mounting.
Unit Face is mounted flush to the flat panel by means of clamping the Face
through the panel with a rear applied retaining spring. Mounting panel thickness
should not exceed 0.312" (8MM) and be greater than 0.031" (0.8MM).
The inside teeth of the retaining spring are angled such that the retaining
spring may slip forward in the clamping direction, but prevented to slip back.
4) Always maintain that a minimum spacing of 0.236" (6MM) is provided from the
conductors to any other metal or user accessed surface to ensure safe operation.
5) Once unit is tightly mounted to the panel, either quick fastening (Faston)
electrical connector is wired to a properly protected AC voltage source and
the other connector is then connected to the intended AC Load, either directly or
indirectly through another connecting means.
Connection is a standard 0.25" (6.35MM) wide spade and should be tightly mated
with appropriate female connector.
6) As a safety precaution, always complete any further enclosure wiring and assembly
operation, as needed, prior to applying voltage sources.
To maintain safe and proper operating condition of the unit, ensure
no debris, oil, moisture, or other contaminents are on the electrical connections
or any exposed surfaces. Do not submerse unit in any liquid nor use any volatiles
such as acetone or alcohol to clean the unit.
Use a damp rag or cloth to wipe off any dust or residue on the unit that could
provide an unsafe conductive path to other conductors or user accessable
surfaces or other points of contact.
Statement of Misuse:
Protection provided by this unit will be impaired if it is used in applications
that exceed its ratings or is not installed properly as described herein.
Always refer to local safety regulations before installation and use of this unit.
The manufacturer and its agents assume no liability for the misuse or
misapplication of this unit.
Unit (UL file number E226175) has been evaluated for UL3111-1
listing and recognition by Underwriter's Laboratories and
CAN/CSA 22.2 No. 1010.1 safety approvals. It is permitted
UL and C-UL markings denoting product safety listing for
the United States and Canada.
Units for European sales may bear the CE mark and copies of the
Declaration of Conformity (per ISO guidelines) may be requested from
Avatar Engineering Corporation.
Note: UL3111 superceeds UL1244 as of 2007 and is derived from
International safety requirements of IEC1010.
