Tough hour meter suits rugged applications

The TH8 Hour Meter from Matsushita Electric Works has been designed for maintenance management applications within mobile vehicles and machines.

The device’s circular design makes for quick and easy installation into control panels or dashboards. In addition, rated voltages of either 12 or 24VDC make the TH8 perfect for monitoring the service intervals of battery powered vehicles such as forklift trucks.

Shock resistant and weather proof the TH8 can withstand functional shock resistance of 10G and destructive shock resistance of 100G. A synchronous motor ensures accurate timing as well as enhancing vibration resistance. The meter also has a water and dirt proof construction and is sealed to IP66.

These features make the TH8 suitable for extreme applications such as agricultural equipment, leisure craft, generators and construction machinery.
