Ion Multi Gauge Controller MG13



As a big advantage of this instrument it can be possibleities to use up to four triggers, which can programmable for each channel separately, with own programmable hysteretic also as 'below' or 'above' options. The measurement channels are active immediately after applying the power, and ready to emision. Channel one is  dedicated to control B-Agauge only. Really flexible settings of B-Agauge parameters allows to connect almost all of B-A gauges available on the market. Such a 2 channel controller combination is perfectly suitable in 2 stages pumps group units, where two ranges (low and high vacuum) has to be controlled. More over the  automatic emission control facility can be used to automatic EMISSION of B-A gauge control related to the low vacuum measurement. All operating modes of the  triggers and the transmitters are displayed and their status is indicated via the outputs.

The unit is also fully software controlled and web-enabled so that it can be operated over any network, including the internet.

*** Only one comms interface can be used at any one time and is chosen at time of order. However, this may be swapped/interchanged with any other comms interface at any future date via simple rear panel plug and play swap, without having to access the internals of the unit.

**** please refer to manual

Only one communication interface can be chosen at time of order (please refer to table) but this can be easily changed in the future via simple rear panel plugin connection modules, without ever having to access the internals of the unit.
