The new Smartline series of vacuum transmitters by Thyracont Vacuum Instruments will be presented at the Hannover Messe 2013. The new devices, which measure from atmospheric pressure to ultra high vacuum, come in a new, sleek design with loads of new options. Through further optimization of the Smartline series, the transmitters offer short response time combined with high resolution and excellent stability.
The devices are available with an integrated, backlight LCD display, which flashes in a bright red color in case of error, compared to the green lighting in the normal mode. The reading can be taken directly at the appliance. All transmitters are designed for industrial applications and have two independent switch points with assigned status LEDs. The data transfer to PC, vacuum controller or SPS is possible direct and digital over RS485 connection or analog with the 0-10 V output or EtherCAT interface.
In a few easy steps, the calibrated sensor heads can be replaced by the user, keeping maintenance time and costs low. All transmitters can be connected to the 1 channel controller VD12 or the 4 channel vacuum controller VD14 and combined to the requirements of the user. The Thyracont VacuGraph Software offers the possibility to evaluate and save the measured data. Typical applications of the Smartline Series range from coating plants to the semiconductor industry, mass spectrometers or vacuum furnaces.
