Take Carlon’s proven JL series meter, add a remarkable new generator and top it off with an accurate and dependable readout unit, which can be mounted up to 1000 feet from the meter. The result is one of the most compact, durable, economical and accurate visual readout OVR systems on the market. The OVR is easy to read, and tamper-proof.
