Description

The Radiation Hardened Vacuum Gauge Model 801W-AC is ideal for applications with ionizing radiation: space, high-altitude flight, medical equipment like CT scanners, nuclear reactors

  • Uses same exact mounting pattern as classic Varian Model 801 pointer meter gauge
  • Solid state electronics ensure long life
  • Radiation Hardened
  • Has circuitry to avoid burning out vacuum tube
  • Delivered pre-calibrated with an Varian/Agilent 531 sensor
  • Note: NIST certification included with the gauge is an available option to add to your order
  • CE compliant with Agilent 531 or 536 sensor

Features

  • Panel Mount: Uses same exact mounting pattern as classic Varian Model 801 pointer meter gauge, including original 10 millivolt output
  • Solid state electronics ensure long life
  • Radiation Hardened Vacuum Gauge—Most semiconductor electronic components are susceptible to radiation damage; radiation-hardened components help solve this issue
  • Has circuitry to avoid burning out vacuum tube
  • Delivered pre-calibrated with an Varian/Agilent 531 sensor (Agilent 536 sensor in integrated baffle is optional)

 Under the effects of radiation, electronic components that aren’t hardened will:

  1. Creep
  2. Harden
  3. And become brittle leading to failure

Radiation hardening is the act of making electronic components and systems resistant to damage or malfunctions caused by ionizing radiation (particle radiation and high-energy electromagnetic radiation), such as those encountered in outer space and high-altitude flight, and around nuclear reactors and particle accelerators.
