New low-cost, battery-powered digital pressure gaugesImpress Sensors & Systems is introducing the DM 10 digital pressure gauges, a range of low-cost, battery-powered digital pressure gauges offering a direct, cost-effective replacement for existing, less accurate mechanical gauges. These gauges are targeted at a wide range of applications, including hydraulics, pneumatics, process engineering, R&D/laboratory work, and pressure monitoring on mobile equipment such as construction vehicles, tractors, pumps, compressors and filters. The gauges have a ceramic diaphragm and are also suitable for environments in which aggressive chemicals are present.

Sam Drury, Sales & Marketing Director at Impress Sensors & Systems, comments: "The DM 10 is a cost-effective, direct replacement for most mechanical pressure gauges. It has a 63mm diameter display, the same as common mechanical gauges, but the DM 10 offers higher accuracy, repeatability and reliability."

The DM 10 is designed to be mounted easily and quickly in situ. The 4.5 digit, seven-segment LCD display can be rotated independently of the housing, providing a clear sight of the display at all times, regardless of the mounting orientation. The housing itself rotates 270 degrees about the horizontal axis.

Operation is provided via a simple, menu-driven display and pushbuttons on a touchpad. As well as showing information about the nominal pressure range, the unit can display via the menu the maximum and minimum pressures of a process.

Users can also select units from bar, mbar, psi, mH2O and MPa. Additional functions include auto-zero and an automatic switch-off, where the user can define between one and five minutes or select continuous operation.

Nominal pressure ranges for the DM 10 are from 1.6 to 250bar. Minimum operational life of the battery is 1500 hours.
