Maximum Demand meter is used for monitoring thermal loading in Power Distribution systems, Networks, Machines etc. It indicates maximum loading current over a period. Short-period current peaks are not registered but long overloads are registered. In the Maximum Demand meter the measuring current flows through the bimetal spiral which is temperature sensitive. The free end of the spiral is connected to a black measuring pointer. The moving system is activated by heat generated by the current flowing through the spiral. The instrument is provided with an additional red slave pointer with a higher friction, which makes it to remain at its maximum position, which determines the maximum average loading current. The high torque of metallic movement drags the red pointer along with the black pointer. The red pointer remains stationary at the maximum value reached. This can be reset by rotating the knob provided on front facia. To prevent false indication due to fluctuations in ambient temperature, an additional bimetallic spiral is wound in opposite direction, which is mounted on the same spindle to compensate variation in temperature from 10 to +55 degrees Centigrade. Frequently there is a need to measure instantaneous current simultaneously & hence moving iron movement having the same range is incorporated in the same meter.
