Active Wide Range Gauge

Active Wide Range Gauge
  • Log pressure scale
    Microprocessor signal processing gives seamless transition between Pirani and magnetron outputs as well as linear output
  • D-type version
    including cable strain relief and enhanced ingress protection – IP44
  • Low magnetic field version (SL)
    available for sensitive applications e.g. mass spectrometry and electron microscopy
  • Easily programmed set-point
    covering entire measuring range
  • Magnetron uses an advanced patented technique
    for highly reliable striking at high vacuum or in relatively contaminated conditions

The Wide Range Gauge (WRG) 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 WRG has many novel features, including a patented striker, push-button calibration and set point controls and comprehensive diagnostics. The WRG is a cost-effective vacuum management solution when used either with a Edwards controller or directly integrated into the vacuum system controls.
