Upgraded or Gone? DigiVac Gauge Replacements

Upgraded or Gone? DigiVac Gauge Replacements Vacuum gauges are like any other piece of technological equipment; they change and evolve over time. One of the primary differences between a new and improved item such as a smartphone and a next-generation replacement vacuum gauge is the naming process. Where many companies can develop new technology, implant it into the new product and give it a name such as HOMETHEATRE X4, a variation of their brand and product name, vacuum gauge manufacturers often don’t. Most of the time, digital vacuum gauges are referred to by product numbers and not specific names. Because of

New At AVS: OptraVac | Highly Accurate Direct Vacuum Gauge

New At AVS: OptraVac | Highly Accurate Direct Vacuum Gauge New At AVS 2015: DIGIVAC—wants your feedback on New Vacuum Technology coming to the market—a prototype is available for viewing and discussion at booth #622, October 18th-23rd, during AVS at the San Jose Convention Center. People working with high vacuum are met with 2 problems: 1. The vacuum region from 1×10-5 to 1×10-7 Torr requires devices that employ indirect measurement technology such as cold and hot cathode gauges with typical accuracies of +/-  30%, which is considered acceptable. An accuracy range of better than +/- 5% is considered almost unattainable with current measurement
