PACE precision pressure indicator
The new PACE precision pressure indicator brings together the latest measurement technology from Druck to offer an elegant, flexible and economical solution to pressure measurement for test, calibration and monitoring.
PACE employs digitally characterized pressure sensors which offer the quality, stability and precision associated with this latest generation of piezo-resistive and resonant devices.
PACE1000 offers a wide choice of standard pressure ranges, with three levels of precision to ensure that PACE1000 can accommodate specification and budget requirements.
The colour touch screen display of the PACE1000 can be configured by a user to indicate up to three pressure measurements from a possible five sensor inputs; three internal sensors and two external universal pressure modules.
The indication configuration extends to an ability to display in a numeric or graph format and also a differential of P1-P2 if more than two sensors are installed. The indicated display can be logged over a customized time period, sample rate and trigger. All the pressure sensor measurement can be retransmitted via one of the communication ports.
The Airfield task is supplied as standard with the Barometric option and enables the user to display QFE, QFF or QNH in pressure units or as altitude in feet or meters
Leak Test measures leak rate over the measure dwell time.
At the start of the test, the instrument measures the applied test pressure of the user system. The instrument records the pressure change during measure dwell time. On completion the display shows the leak rate results, with leak rate per second or per minute in the current pressure units selected.
Switch test – standard with the analogue output or voltage free contacts option Switch Test automates the testing of pressure switch devices. Following the test, displayed is the pressure at which contacts open and close and the switch hysteresis. Switch Test task can also be set to capture switch toggle max, min and average values.
The Analogue Output can be programmed via the setup menu screen to output a signal proportional to the instrument range selected. This allows the instrument to interface with PC or PLC I/O cards, remote displays, chart recorders or other data logging equipment.
Users can select outputs of 0 to 10 V, 0 to 5 V, -5 to 5 V and 0/4 to 20 mA. Precision with respect to host instrument measured pressure 0.05% FS over the host instrument operating temperature range, variable update rate to 80 readings per second. The option is programmable between minimum and FS pressure for proportional output against pressure.
Volt free contacts
Volt Free Contacts enable control of peripheral devices such as vacuum pumps, ovens, etc. Each VFC option has three independent volt-free NO/NC relay contacts. A number of conditions can be set within a PACE1000 instrument to trigger a relay toggling its contacts.
