Compact, linear-output vacuum gauge

Wednesday, 04 April, 2007 | Supplied by: http://www.avt.net.au/



The latest addition to the BOC Edwards range of Pirani vacuum gauges is the APG100 Series, designed for measurement of vacuum down to 10-4 mbar. The new gauge is lead free, RoHS compliant and carries Canadian Safety Association approval. It is available in standard and corrosion-resistant versions.

OEMs and system integrators will particularly like the APG100 for its compact size (41 x 83 x 30 mm), linear output (1 V per decade) and replaceable sensor tube, all of which make it a cost-effective choice as a system component. Cable connections and the 'calibrate' and 'set point' push-buttons are arranged close together at one end of the unit, so side access is not required, giving greater flexibility in system design. There are NW16 and NW25 flange options as standard - other flange sizes can be supplied on request.

The APG100 sensor tube is replaceable. If it should need to be changed, the tube is simply unclipped and replaced with a new one, with no need for special tools or training.

With the electronics module removed, the sensor tube can be baked to a temperature of 150?C where this is needed for systems operating at very low pressures.

The APG 100 is available in two versions: the APG100-XM is the standard version for measurement of vacuum to 10-3 mbar; the APG100-XLC measures vacuum down to 10-4 mbar and has a corrosion-resistant filament for harsher environments.
