Baratron® Capacitance Manometers
Baratron® capacitance manometers are usually stand-alone transducers typically requiring
a ±15 volt power supply and deliver a 0-10 volt pressure signal that is directly proportional to pressure.
Baratron® capacitance manometers measure true pressure (defined as force/unit
area). This means that the measurement is insensitive to the type of gas being
measured. Other gauges, such as Pirani, thermocouple and ion gauges, do not
measure true pressure and therefore their readings will be gas-type sensitive.
