Total pressure vacuum gauge with digital signal outlet

DigiLine

These vacuum gauges have a rugged metallic case as well as integrated analysis electronics. A digital output signal enables them to be connected directly to a PC or SPC. Combinations of different sensors offer an expanded measurement range with only one flange connection. Standard versions with serial RS-485 interface and options with Profibus-DP (PB) and DeviceNet (DN) interfaces or an additional analogue output with two set points (AR) are available.

Controller and power supply units

The DigiLine gauges can be powered by the power supplies of the HiPace turbopumps, which drive up to 16 gauges. The control unit DPG 202 can drive up to two gauges and features a display to readout the pressure data of the two measuring channels.

Choice of fieldbus interfaces or analog output with two switch points and LCD display available as options

DigiLine gauges are designed for industrial and research applications requiring total pressure measurement that is reliable and easy to install. The series covers the technically relevant vacuum range with measuring principles encompassing piezo, Pirani, capacitive, hot cathode and cold cathode sensors. All gauges have an RS-485 interface which can be used to connect up to 16 measuring points to a controller. The M12 connector assemblies qualify these vacuum gauges for usage in heavy-duty environments. The gauges can be operated in a communication network with accessories from the current HiPace turbopump range.

Options include Profibus DP, DeviceNet, Profinet and EtherCAT interfaces or an additional analog output with two switch points and an LCD display.
