First In A New Generation Of Modular, High Precision Pressure Controller/Indicators From GE
|Pressemitteilung von: GE Sensing|
|(openPR) - Billerica, MA. - June 9, 2008. The PACE 5000 pneumatic pressure controller/indicator is the first in a new generation of high precision modular instruments for rack-mounting or bench top applications from GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies. It employs full digital control to provide stability and high slew rate, while its unique modular concept allows users to enjoy quick and easy parts replacement and significantly reduced instrument downtime.
The PACE 5000 is based on GE’s field-proven and highly reliable Druck DPI 520 platform. It incorporates the latest generation of piezo-resistive devices, offering significant improvements in overall precision, long-term measurement stability and control performance. Designed primarily for 19-inch rack systems, it is equally at home as a bench top instrument and is ideal for integration into automated processes, where fast and accurate pressure control is required. Multiple units can be combined in the same system to provide a full range of pressure calibration capability from 25 mbar to 210 bar. It is available in a choice of two performance specifications, so that the correct instrument can be selected for each installation.
The unique modular design of the new controller/indicator allows users quick and easy parts replacement and fast pressure range changeover. Furthermore, modularity introduces a flexibility that has previously been impossible to achieve in the calibration laboratory and in the manufacturing environment as, with modularity, if a controller/indicator needs calibration, it is now only necessary to remove the modular component, rather than send away the complete instrument. At the same time, a replacement module can be fitted in the instrument so that downtime is significantly reduced. Modularity also means that calibration laboratories can carry fewer instruments and instrument components, reducing the cost of ownership.
A touch screen and a high-resolution ¼ VGA display ensure that the PACE 5000 is easy to operate and read. A simple icon menu allows easy and intuitive set-up of controller parameters and connectivity is via RS232 and IEEE communication ports providing for easy PC and peripherals connection, the use of set-up software and diagnostics downloads for technical support.
The PACE 5000 has been designed to communicate with GE’s Druck Intecal software, which was specifically developed to provide support for both laboratory and field calibrations. This provides easy control in a fully integrated pressure loop, giving 100% automated calibration of pressure transducers and transmitters. Intecal software has full documenting facilities to prepare reports and provide calibration certificates from its database, utilizing readout data from connected calibration equipment and test devices. In addition, the calibration and maintenance history of the PACE 5000, along with its configuration, is stored within the instrument. The calibration history is automatically updated each time a calibration is carried out to ensure that calibration records are always up-to-date to meet quality assurance standards.
