MKS Instruments, Inc. Introduces a-Baratron Capacitance Manometer

MKS Instruments, Inc. has introduced the a-Baratron Capacitance Manometer, an advanced high-performance, heated absolute capacitance manometer with better accuracy, higher tolerance to ambient temperature changes and excellent repeatability. The a-Baratron manometer is internally heated to 45°, 80° or 100°C, and has a pushbutton zero that allows service intervals up to four times longer than earlier models. It is fully back compatible with earlier MKS and competitive products. The manometer offers full-scale measurement ranges from 0.1 Torr to 1,000 Torr (13.3 Pa to 133.3 kPa). Its all-digital architecture and advanced new sensor heating system provide long-term performance and reliability. As with previous Baratron manometers, the sensor is made from Inconel and Incoloy nickel alloys for the same superior corrosion resistance. The a-Baratron manometer can be equipped with the standard sensor or MKS’ patented Etch Baffle sensor technology that greatly reduces process contamination. It can be configured for both new and existing processing systems. It operates on ±15VDC input voltage, and has a standard 0–10VDC analog output signal. It is fully CE and RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant, and is 100% back-compatible with earlier 100- and 600-series analog Baratron capacitance manometers, as well as many competitive capacitance diaphragm gauges.
