New Vacuum Pressure Controller
A new Active Digital Controller (ADC) now available from BOC Edwards provides a clear, long distance digital display of vacuum pressures in industrial, process and scientific applications.

Simple to install and to use, ADC has optional voltage and serial outputs for data acquisition and / or control functions.
ADC is designed for use with BOC Edwards Active Pirani, Wide Range, Magnetron and Strain Gauges. Its simple Œplug and go¹ installation makes it ideal for integration into OEM equipment, such as vacuum ovens and furnaces, and for monitoring process vacuum in a wide range of laboratory and industrial end-user applications.
Units - Pascals, mbar, Torr or Volts - are selected by the user via simple front-panel push-button controls, and the bright LED display gives clear, long distance readability. ADC¹s measurement range is 2000 to 1x10-9 mbar.
In its standard version, ADC is a simple display unit. For applications that require data logging or control functionality, the Active Digital Controller Enhanced has two set point relays, two analogue outputs and an RS232 interface. These can be used to connect directly to a chart recorder or other logging device for customer records or quality control, for direct control of switches or other instruments, or for connection into a higher level control system such as a programmable logic controller (PLC) or PC-based control system.
Housed in a neat 1/8 DIN enclosure, ADC can be panel-mounted or bench-mounted. It complements the existing BOC Edwards range, giving customers a wide choice of analogue and digital displays and controllers for all applications.
