Pfeiffer Vacuum Launches CenterLine Vacuum Gauges
Pfeiffer Vacuum introduces the CenterLine series of analog vacuum gauges. CenterLine gauges are equipped with either an 8-pin FCC connector or a 15-pin D-sub connector. The connectors are widely used in industry, according to Pfeiffer, which makes their integration into existing systems easier for users. Customers can choose between a variety of measuring sensors from ultra-high vacuum up to atmospheric pressure. The compact CenterLine series permits space-saving installation in vacuum process systems, analytical instruments, leak detectors and other applications.
CenterLine uses controllers that allow communication via USB and Ethernet interfaces. The bright LCD screen makes it easy to read the measured value. The gauges are automatically detected by the controller. In addition to the analog output, some gauges have set points for better process control.
The CenterLine PTR 91 FullRange gauge has Pirani and cold cathode sensors integrated into a single, compact housing with a display range from 5·10-9 to 1000 mbar. The cold cathode offers a very low external magnetic field. The design of the measuring chambers extends its service life, according to Pfeiffer. A removable dual chamber enables easy maintenance.
