With gauges being vital to any vacuum system in order to efficiently control and monitor processes, you can find a wide selection of technologies to best suit your application.
In all cases we offer gauges that span the complete range from Atmosphere to UHV pressures. From Active to Passive and 2000mbar to 1e-12mbar we have the solution for you.
They are Electro-mechanical gauges using a ceramic membrane to form an electrode of a capacitor.
Available in a number of temperature controlled variants, our Capacitance range can be integrated into many applications where accuracy is key.
Digital gauges are similar to Active in that they are self-contained including driving electronics, however they take this one step further and eliminate the need for a separate controller.
The Digital gauges simply need a supply voltage in the range of 15 to 48Vdc and then are serial comms enabled, so can be directly interrogated via a PC or PLC using either RS232 or RS485 communications.
The head that is attached to the system only contains the items needed for the physical measurement and all other electronics is contained in the controller.
As such the controller and cable have to be specific to the desired gauge.
Portable gauging offers the opportunity to easily take spot measurement checks.
Thanks to it being mains power independent, the Edwards P3 handheld all-in-one measuring system is the essential device for:
