Compact 4 Channel Vacuum Controller

The new Vacuum Display and Control Unit VD14 with four measuring channels from Thyracont Vacuum Instruments is going to be available from February 2018. The VD14 features a large graphic LCD display with background illumination in a very compact 19“ metal housing. A very comfortable operation is offered by a menu-driven operator guidance. The status of the four available relay switches is apparent in the display. These relay switches can be assigned to any of the four channels and can be linked to different switching modes e.g. relay one switches to channel three at measuring range underflow.

Bluetooth for Vacuum Transducers

The new Bluebridge™ Adapter SLKBT allows for wireless communication of up to 16 Smartline™ vacuum transducers. The Bluetooth® wireless connection reaches up to 100 m (class 1). To this end, the Bluebridge module is plugged on a transducer which is, where required, connected to further transducers with cables in between, forming an RS485 bus. The transducers are subsequently available in the VacuGraph™ Software on a PC with Bluetooth receiver, where they can be easily configured, monitored as well as tele-controlled, and measuring results can be saved for quality assurance in a comfortable way. Alternatively, a programmable logic control (PLC) can be used as Bluetooth master.

A chameleon in the vacuum

Smartline vacuum transducers can adapt themselves exactly to predominant ambient condi-tions of your vacuum application. Practically speaking: The 0 – 10 V output signal of the transmitters is scalable in accordance with the desired characteristic curve. This works by means of a simple software command, which is sent via the digital RS485 in-terface of the gauge, and can be implemented at delivery ex works or simply by the user himself. It is therefore possible to scale, for example, the measuring range of a Pirani to 1.5 - 8.5 V, 1 - 9 V or to 2 - 9 V.

100% Robusta – Pirani with platinum rhodium Helix

The Pirani sensor in the VCP has a platinum rhodium filament. The new sensor is thus not only suitable for corrosive gas applications in a range of 100 … 5e-4 hPa. The relatively smooth surface of this material reduces deposits of oil vapors or other contaminations and therefore ensures a particularly high durability of the filament which has been verified in field tests with especially critical applications. The sensor can even withstand steam pressure sterilizations.
