September 27, 2010 - Impress Sensors & Systems announces DM 10 battery-powered digital pressure gauges, which offers a direct replacement for existing, less accurate mechanical gauges.The DM 10 range of battery-powered digital pressure gauges are targeted at a wide range of applications, including hydraulics & pneumatics, process engineering, R&D/laboratory work, and mobile pressure monitoring, including mobile construction vehicles, tractors, pumps, compressors and filters. The gauges have a ceramic diaphragm and so are also suitable for environments in which aggressive chemicals are present.The DM 10 is designed to be mounted easily and quickly in-situ. The 4.5 digit, 7-segment LC display can be rotated independently of the housing, providing the engineer with clear sight of the display at all times, regardless of the mounting configuration. The housing itself rotates 270 degrees about the horizontal axis.The device is operated through a simple, menu-driven display via push buttons 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 choose which units of measurement they prefer, including bar, mbar, psi, mH2O and MPa. Additional functions include auto-zero and an automatic switch-off, where the user can define between 1 and 5 minutes or select continuous operation.Nominal pressure ranges for the DM 10 are from 1.6 bar up to 250 bar. Minimum operational life of the battery is 1,500 hours.
