Press Release Summary:
Incorporating all-stainless steel, vibration- and shock-resistant sensor, PG5 delivers .01 digit resolution as standard through 100 psi. It is powered by 9 V battery, and is available with ranges from vacuum up to 500 psi, and from 0-10,000 psi, at Â±0.25% accuracy of full scale (B.F.S.L). User-selectable functions include auto-off (2, 4, 8, 16, or 32 min), Maximum and Minimum readings, and units of measure (psi, bar, mbar, kPa, MPa, inH2O, mmHg, inHg, cmHg, kgcm2, or ftH2O).

New Cost-Effective and Features-Laden PG5 Digital Pressure Gauge Boasts Full 5-Digit Display
LOGAN, UT - Automation Products Group, Inc. (APG) introduces the PG5 Digital Pressure Gauge. The PG5 features a full 5-digital display with large and easily readable 0.4 in. characters. The unit leverages MEMS-based sensing technology for maximum reliability and stability, and incorporates as standard a number of user-selectable setup features that are often add-on options with other digital pressure gauges, while delivering .01digit resolution as standard through 100 PSI, all at no additional cost to the user. It is available with ranges from vacuum up to 500 psi, and from 0 up to 10,000 psi, at ±0.25% accuracy of full scale (B.F.S.L). The unit is self-powered by a standard 9 V battery.
"The PG5 requires no special tools or adapters for installation, which makes them an easy and cost effective replacement for less accurate standard mechanical gauges. And the unit's long life, ease of operation, high accuracy and low cost make it an ideal fit in laboratory, manufacturing, aviation, medical and other applications where standard 2.5 in. or larger mechanical gauges are used," says Gordon Greathouse, Pressure Products Application Engineer.
The unit incorporates an all-stainless steel sensor that is resistant to most typical vibration and shock exposures. The PG5 provides highly accurate readings even with pulsating pressures - typically a major disadvantage when compared to vibration-sensitive dial gauges.
PG5 digital pressure gauges feature a microprocessor-based circuit with "TARE" capability as standard. User-selectable functions include auto-off (2, 4, 8, 16 or 32 minutes), Maximum and Minimum readings, and units of measure (psi, bar, mbar, kPa, MPa, inH2O, mmHg, inHg, cmHg, kgcm2, or ftH2O). Users will also find helpful standard features including a bar graph analog readout, peak hold, and gauge reference pressure. The unit has an on/off button.
Available options include 4-20 mA two wire loop powered output, 0-2 VDC battery powered output, and 0-5 VDC external power outputs. They are also available with absolute, sealed or vacuum pressure references, a rear pressure port and up to ±0.1% full scale accuracy (B.F.S.L) with NIST certification (on selected ranges), and can be cleaned for oxygen service. Other units of measure and process connection fittings are also available.
