EC: DG25 Digital Pressure Gauge

Process Control - Process sensors: The new Ashcroft DG25 digital pressure gauge features a digital display along with electronic functions for easy reading and data manipulation. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice Award winner.


The new Ashcroft DG25 digital pressure gauge features a digital display along with electronic functions for easy reading and data manipulation. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.The Ashcroft Type DG25 digital pressure gauge can be used in place of a traditional dial-mechanical pressure gauge with many advantages including easier readability, greater accuracy and resolution, improved resistance to shock and vibration, the ability to record max/min readings, multiple units of measure and more. A five full digit, 0.48 inch high LCD includes a bar graph to show the pressure status relative to the full scale of the gauge. When equipped with the optional backlight feature, the DG25 can be easily read despite poor lighting conditions. With the push a button, the display can report the maximum and minimum readings since last cleared, reset the zero, tare a pressure preload and can read in a choice of nine pre-programmed engineering units and one that is user programmable.

The DG25 adopts the basic form and fit of a standard 2½ inch (dial diameter) pressure gauge with a water tight enclosure that provides IP67 ingress protection, making it suitable for wash-down. A black or orange rubber boot is also available to further protect the gauge while installed or carried portably as a test device. All-welded stainless steel wetted parts also serve to protect the gauge from adverse environmental conditions as well as ensure compatibility to many corrosive media. Ranges from vacuum to 25,000 psi are available and can be read to accuracies of ±0.5 and ±0.25% F.S. Two standard alkaline AA batteries power the DG25 for more than 2000 hours.
