The Digital gauges simply need a supply voltage in the range of 15 to 48V and then can be directly interrogated via a PC or PLC using either RS232 or RS485 communications.
As these gauges utilise the same technology as their Active counterparts, along with being in the same form: they are a perfect upgrade for those looking to increase data collection.
We provide digital versions of our APG200, AIM, and WRG ranges, known respectively as: nAPG200, nAIM, and nWRG.
Measuring from atmosphere to 1 x 10-9 mbar, and with corrosion resistant/industrial versions, you can select the right gauge for your application.
With standard 0-10V signals available in linear and S-Shaped outputs, these units are simple but effective in reading your system.
Measure from 2000mbar to 5 x 10-10 mbar with Edwards gauges!

Edwards production facility in the UK has been making and designing vacuum gauging for decades. With this experience we have been able to develop a gauge that has a 25% reduced package size, with no reduction in performance. With a range of upgrades and feature enhancements, the nAPG200 is suitable for all vacuum markets, from Analytical instruments who can take advantage of the reduced size and flexible outputs, to Semiconductor for whom the new interfaces and light rings enable better maintenance of systems, to Research and development for whom the local pressure indication helps to monitor experiments away from the main interfaces.
Active Inverted Magnetron (nAIM) Gauges provide accurate measurement over the vacuum range of 1 x 10-2 to 1 x 10-9 mbar. These gauges have proved to be rugged and reliable in a wide range of applications, ranging from scientific instruments to industrial processes. The AIM-X Gauge is an inverted magnetron gauge head and gauge controller combined into a single compact unit, and features a linear output for easy integration with a computer or PLC. The XL variants have a very low external magnetic field, these are ideally suited for use with sensitive analytical instruments or in applications where the gauge needs to be mounted in close proximity to a turbomolecular pump.
The Wide Range Gauge (nWRG) family offers the capability of single port pressure measurement in the range atmosphere to 10-9 mbar, with a linear output. It’s a compact solution, halving the space and connectivity hardware requirement, which can be all important in many applications. The nWRG has many novel features, including a patented striker, push-button calibration and set point controls and comprehensive diagnostics. The nWRG is a cost-effective vacuum management solution when used either with an Edwards controller or directly integrated into the vacuum system controls.
With every process having a specific requirement, you can see we offer multiple gauge types to make sure you have the right gauge for your need.
From our rugged nAPG200 Pirani gauges, available in standard and corrosion resistant variants, for measuring from atmosphere to 1 x 104 mbar to our nWRG Cold Cathode/Pirani combination gauges, to measure from atmosphere down to 1 x 10-9 mbar.
