NMW 2004: Dresser’s Ashcroft digital gauge has breakthrough features

Chicago, IL—The new Ashcroft industrial digital gauge that Dresser Instruments exhibited at National Manufacturing Week (NMW) 2004 in Chicago has several distinguishing characteristics, including 4-20 mA output, and a switching option of one or two SPDT switches.


Chicago, IL— The new Ashcroft industrial digital gauge that Dresser Instrument s exhibited at National Manufacturing Week (NMW) 2004 in Chicago has several distinguishing characteristics, including a 4-20 mA output, and a switching option of one or two SPDT switches to combine indication, transmission, and switching capability into one package.

To provide optimum flexibility, this new gauge features a 0.25% full-scale terminal point accuracy; multiple engineering units; range from vacuum through 20,000 psi, including compound ranges; a tamper-resistant re-zoning feature; a percent-of-range bar graph; and a case that’s weatherproof to IP65. Optional features include a backlight and a battery backup on line-powered gauges.

The 4.5-in. gauge also has a display with an extra large, 0.88-in. character height, with five-digit resolution. A smaller 3-in. version of the gauge is available in stainless steel.

These gauges can be paired with Ashcroft industrial diaphragm seals, assembled, and shipped directly from the factory for use in pharmaceutical, chemical, or other specialized
