With passive gauges having their control electronics removed in order to operate in irradiated environments or environments where electronic units would fail, we have a range of controllers offering the needed control systems.
Compact three channel measuring instruments for passive sensors in installable benchtop / rack mountable housing (1/4 19'', 3 HU)
Vacuum pressure measurement from 10-12 - 1000 mbar
Error message per channel, in case of a broken filament, defective sensor line or failed plasma discharge, for example
Cable length up to 100 meters possible
RS 232/485 and Profibus interfaces
CE and RoHS compliant
With passive gauges often being used in demanding industrial and research applications, the controllers are similarly tough, with an extruded metal housing protecting the electronics from contaminations.
It is also simple to connect the rough to medium vacuum TR gauge and have it automatically control the high to ultra high vacuum, PR or IE, gauge. By having the two linked it helps to protect the PR/IE vacuum gauge from turning on at high pressures, thus extending their lifetime.
Whilst the unit can rest on a bench, it is also rack mountable (1/4 19", 3 HU) with the enclosure made of metal for installation in front panel cut outs and 19" racks.
Operation of the unit:
Either via the serial interface, or via the push buttons on the front of the unit. Via these you can set the gas types for each channel, zero the gauges, control the turning on and off of the gauges dependent on pressure, and more.
Made for 100-240V so can be used worldwide, rather than being region specific, making export of systems simple.
