Compact controller VC-2212M

Compact controller VC-2212M is designed for concurrent monitoring of low and high vacuum in vacuum piping by using transducers PMT-6 and PMM-32 in the range of 10-7 to 10 5 Pa.

Controller VC-2212M is a device combining a power supply and pressure indication systems for transducers of two types: thermoelectric transducer PMT-6-3 and cold cathode inverse-magnetron transducer PMM-32-1.



Vacuum monitor VC-2212M will ensure:

•  concurrent monitoring of low and high vacuum in vacuum piping;

•  pressure indication on an LC screen in various units (Pa, torr, mbar);

•  LED indication of reaching and exceeding the vacuum threshold levels (the vacuum threshold levels are among the instrument settings);

•  the Operator can choose the controller operating mode by himself;

•  generation of the interlock signal in case vacuum in the vacuum piping becomes worse than the threshold setting;

•  interlock deactivation in an emergency situation.

Peculiar features

•  Any vacuum measurement channel and interlock may be switched on/off manually.

•  Autocalibration of the low vacuum measurement channel in case transducer PMT-6-3 is replaced.

•  Possibility of switching over from the automatic mode to the simple meter manual mode.

•  Conventional connection of VC-2212M to the computer and total remote monitoring and control through the USB interface.

•  Possibility of controlling the vacuum system actuators according to any algorithm via an additional relay unit EU-01 (up to six programmable channels per unit).


Preferred application

Vacuum monitoring in automated process vacuum systems.
