Vacuum Gauge Controller

The INFICON Vacuum Gauge Controller 031 (VGC031) is designed for use in conjunction with the INFICON Pirani Gauge Enhanced 050 (PGE050) and acts as a convenient power supply, control and readout. VGC031 and PGE050 are a flexible combination to monitor your vacuum system in the range from 1.3 × 10-4 up to 1333 mbar (1 × 10-4 up to 1000 Torr). The VGC031 with its space saving panel mount housing supports a variety of technical features as 2 set point relays, 4 user selectable analog outputs and offers additionally RS232/ RS485 digital interfaces. The bright, sharp and clear OLED display with the integrated keypad user interface rounds out this user friendly vacuum gauge controller package. The rugged industrial design makes the VGC031 in combination with the convection enhanced PGE050 gauge sensor a very good choice for many vacuum applications were economical vacuum measurement from low to high vacuum range is required.
