A PID Control Guide: How to Tune Your PID Controller

How to Tune the PID Controller? Tuning for PID control can be a bit complicated, since it’s all about balance and striking the perfect harmony among three different variables.  Finding this balance, however, is how your automated processes will continue running smoothly.  If a system is poorly tuned, several mishaps can happen, such as: Therefore, productivity can be impacted as it can make operators wait, reduce yield, or increase premature failures. For such instances, we have a white paper on our website that goes in depth about PID control in vacuum systems.  Said paper also has a brief explanation on

How Durable Are The Corrosion Resistant Pirani Sensors?

CORROSION RESISTANT SENSORS | How Durable are They? Back in May, an article was released about the new corrosion resistant pirani vacuum sensors.  Previously, sensors were limited due to the exposed materials that were subject to corrosive gasses and aggressive etch processes, which we at DigiVac and our customers have observed as well.   Thus, with the introduction of the corrosion resistant pirani sensors, there exists an option for a more durable vacuum sensor.  These come with a protective coating, acting as a barrier against any aggressive gasses.  It either comes in a ceramic or Parylene coating. CERAMIC VS. PARYLENE Ceramic is advantageous in that it is highly corrosion resistant,
