Easy-to-Set-up, Easy-to-Read Digital Pressure Gauge

September 14, 2010

The IP65 rated indoor/outdoor gauge features a large 5 ½ -inch display casing, a full five-digit display with characters at 0.68-inches tall, and a 270 degrees digital “dial” or radial bar graph that shows a user-selectable pressure range from 0- to 100-percent. Combined with four large set-up buttons, the result is a pressure monitoring solution that is simple to set-up and operate and easy to read. Standard features include tare, peak hold, and max-min readings, as well as user-selectable units of measure and an auto-off timer. Options include two solid-state relays or SPDT mechanical relay outputs for basic to semi-advanced automation. The gauge has an operating temperature range, from 0 to 160 degrees F, boasts ±0.25-percent accuracy of full scale, and features pressure ranges from vacuum to 500 psi, or 0 to 10,000 psi. Outputs are 0-2 VDC for battery-powered units, 4-20mA for loop-powered units, and 0-5 VDC for externally powered units. Data logging provides local access to the latest 60 readings. These features and functions make the digital pressure gauge ideally-suited for use in applications where visibility, functionality, and stability are of primary concern.
