VSR – Compact Vacuum Transducer with Piezo and Pirani Sensor

From April a new combination transducer complements the Analogline product family, which consists of compact vacuum transducers with an analog output signal.  The new VSR combines a Piezo and a Pirani sensor. This combination does not only extend the measuring range to 2000 – 5e-5 mbar, but also achieves a high level of accuracy over the entire measuring range, including also rough vacuum. Above 15 mbar the measurement is independent of the gas type. The short response time of maximum 18 ms and ...
