Edwards Launches Easy to Use P3 Handheld Vacuum Gauge

Edwards is introducing the P3 handheld vacuum measuring system. An easy to use, battery powered device with direct on-board display of measured pressure, which is ideal for on-site service calls and in-situ pressure checking. The P3 can provide mobile and fixed pressure measurement for installations of all kinds, including service, maintenance, universities or laboratory applications.

The Piezo Pirani sensor enables pressure measurement of all common gas types, in the range of 1200 to 5x10-4 mbar. With the integrated battery, the device can be attached and operated at any pressure point, and directly display or store up to 2000 values – all data values stored can be exported via USB.

“We are delighted to launch our new hand held P3 pressure gauge”, commented Dave Goodwin, Senior Product Manager, High Vacuum, Edwards. “It is simple to use and ready to go, and with no need for a separate controller or power supply, it is perfect for quickly checking vacuum installations and pump performance.”
