Crystal Engineering Expands XP2i Digital Pressure Gauge Line

Oct. 27, 2017
Product line offers new low-pressure ranges in bar, psi and kPa.

Crystal Engineering, a unit of Ametek Sensor, Test & Calibration, expands its XP2i digital pressure gauge product line with three new low-pressure ranges in bar, psi and kPa.

Gas distribution testing is among the most popular applications for the XP2i digital pressure gauge. However, in some areas of the world, gas distributors use absolute pressure rather than gauge pressure. Previous versions of the XP2i were limited to measuring absolute pressures that were 2000 psi or higher, ruling out the XP2i’s use for lower pressure applications. Now, with the expanded XP2i product offering, those applications also can utilize the XP2i digital pressure gauge.

The new gauges are available in 10bar, 30bar and 70bar as well as equivalent psi and kPa pressure versions. The new models are available in the standard 0.1% of reading versions along with the 0.02% and 0.05% of full scale versions. The new digital pressure gauges include all standard XP2i features, offer optional data logging, and are fully compatible with FastCalXP.

The ultra-rugged, intrinsically safe gauge offers high-accuracy pressure recording. Key features include an IP-67 rated, marine-grade enclosure (submersible up to 1 meter), a fast pressure safety valve (PSV) mode, custom engineering units and a leak-free Crystal pressure fitting connection. A dual display version adds additional features, including leak rate, tare mode and differential pressure (when connected to a second XP2i). With an optional DataLoggerXP upgrade, users can record 32,000 data points and export the data into an Excel document. A battery-optimizing, Ultra-Low Power (ULP) mode reportedly allows more than a year of continuous recording on one set of AA batteries.
