Available in both active and passive configuration, all our gauges are easy to integrate via one of our dedicated active gauge controllers: GRAPHIX or DISPLAY.
The THERMOVAC and PENNINGVAC gauges are also compatible with our TURBO.CONTROLi pump and gauge controllers.
Alternatively, with their simple outputs 0-10 V / serial communications, they are easy to direct into your PLC.
The workhorse of vacuum gauging
Wide range, robustness against a majority of environments, works in the rough to medium vacuum levels.
Measuring from 10-2 to 10-9 mbar/torr
Often paired with Pirani gauges to measure systems utilizing high vacuum pumps.
Accurately measuring from medium to ultra-high vacuum pressure.
Hot cathode ionization differs from cold cathode in that it has a hot filament emitting ions inbuilt into the sensor head. This technology is capable of measuring from medium to ultra-high vacuum pressures (10-12 mbar/torr), the trade off being a sensor head that requires more protection, and with its more complex design comes a higher cost of ownership.
As with cold cathode technologies, they stop measuring ~10-2 mbar/torr, therefore are normally combined with an integrated pirani to provide full range measurement in a single gauge.
Also there are different versions of the hot cathode technology, with the main types being Bayard-Alpert (ITR or IE 414) and extractor (IE 514). The extractor technology offers the lowest pressure measurement with the ability to measure to 10-12 mbar/torr
