Why Should You Clean Your Vacuum Sensors? A Case Study in Contaminated Vacuum Sensors & Their Effect on Readings Tim pitched a blog idea to me based around my experience with this repair. A customer sent a StrataVac Touch back that wasn’t reading correctly. The sensors were so contaminated for so long that it changed how they read vacuum and even after repeated cleanings and attempted adjustments, the gauge would not read in spec. I took some data at relevant points after cleaning but before calibrating, after attempted calibration, and then after replacing the sensors. Seems like a good potential
We created an open source python solution that utilizes serial communication and DV CUP to graphically display vacuum information on a PC. Read more to Learn how to starting our free GUI Link!
Without pressure, it becomes sensor specific. For example, we could read some resistances across the pins of the gauge and compensate for at least some differences from the ideal tube. We have talked about this at length amongst ourselves and with customers.
