Can I test panel meters and transducers using the MTS-5000 or MTS-5100?
Yes, you can! Manta offers the MTS-2000 Panel Meter and Transducer Test System specifically for that purpose, but the MTS-5000 and MTS-5100 also have a productivity mode specifically for testing panel meters. As of Version 2.04 there is no specific support for transducer testing, but you can display the measured 0-20mA or 0-10V transducer output level on the screen while you’re testing. You’ll need to calculate scale factors yourself, and then you can use the MTS-5000 or MTS-5100 to test transducers.
I created a video demonstrating how to use Meter Test Mode:
