Digital pressure measurement and data acquisition system

  • The pressure and temperature sensor with digital output has twice the accuracy of similar products with analog output and stronger anti-interference ability.

  • Industrial standard RS485 or RS232 communication mode. Sensors are added on demand on the communication bus, with high scalability.

  • High stability digital quantity pressure sensor, extremely low-pressure temperature drift can still maintain the low-pressure fluctuation under high pressure, which is conducive to improving the test accuracy.

  • The sensor can output the digital quantities of temperature and pressure at the same time, which facilitates the secondary correction of the pressure-temperature drift software.

World-leading data accuracy and authority recognition

  • The micro standard chamber (reference chamber) combined with a high sealing pipeline system. Using a small amount of sample (mg level to several grams level) can achieve the same accuracy as the test results of tens of grams of sample used by traditional instruments, and the small amounts of samples can effectively improve the test efficiency.

  • The fully automated test process can eliminate errors through manual operation, and unattended test mode can run continuously for a long time (more than a week); measurement errors are dynamically eliminated by the software during the test, and no secondary error elimination operation on the data after the test, which ensures the consistency and reliability of test results by different operators.

  • The products are highly recognized by customers worldwide and the test data are used in papers published in prestigious journals.
