VGC40x

Vacuum Gauge Controller

The NEW Active Gauge Controller series VGC50x is designed for best and state of the art process measurement and control and is available as single, dual and triple channel device. It supports the wide range of INFICON active gauges and is well suited to monitor and data log the entire pressure range from 10-10 to 1500 mbar (10-10 to 1125 Torr) as well as the set point status.

Compatibility to VGC40x series (discontinued) is given.

Benefits

  • Automatic identification of the connected INFICON gauges
  • User selectable measurement unit (mbar,Torr, Pascal, micron)
  • High resolution – 16 bit A/D converter
  • Up to six adjustable setpoints with adjustable hysteresis may be assigned to any channel
  • Compliance & standards: CE, ETL, RoHS
  • Programmable 0 to 10 V chart recorder output with logarithmic/ linear characteristics for each gauge or gauge combination (VGC402/403 only)
  • Firmware upgrades available on-line are easily downloaded via the RS232 interface
  • Versatile, compact bench-top model design an easily be mounted in a panel or 19″ rack
  • Widerange power supply 90 to 250 V, 50 to 60 Hz
