355 Micro-Ion® Transducer
(1x10-9 to 5x10-2 Torr)
Hot Cathode Vacuum Transducer
The MKS Micro-Ion® Transducer combines the world's smallest ionization gauge with the control electronics to create a compact, convenient, reliable, and cost-saving solution for many high vacuum applications. This Micro-Ion® vacuum gauge includes many features that provide for a much more accurate and repeatable measurement than traditional Bayard-Alpert gauges from 5 x 10-2 Torr to 10-9 Torr. The all-metal package provides a rugged enclosure and a high level of immunity to electrical noise. High performance in a small volume is achieved though a number of enhancements including a patented dual ion collector design that optimizes electron motion and ion collection.
The 355 transducer is available with analog output, RS485 or DeviceNet™ interfaces. The analog output and DeviceNet versions have a digital display option for convenient, point-of-use pressure readout.
