The Multi Gauge Controller MG13 supports 2 vacuum gauges connected at the same time: one Bayard-Alpert gauge and any other existing gauge on the market based on the 0-10V output standard.

As standard, all of Leybold gauges are supported: ITR 100, ITR 90, DI 200, DI 2000, TTR 211 S, TTR 91, PTR 225. Any others can be implemented as an option. Although just 1U height, the controller is able to display both channels at the same time on the large alphanumeric LCD display. The high brightness display provides clear readout from large viewing angles and long distances. A useful feature of the MG13 is the availability of 4 interlocks, each of which can be separately programmed for each channel, including threshold levels and hysteresis. The measurement channels are active immediately upon power-up and ready for emission. Channel 1 is a dedicated channel for B-A gauges. It features very flexible B-A gauge parameter settings and is therefore suitable for use with almost all commercially available third party B-A gauges. The controller is perfectly suited for 2 stage pumps group units, where two ranges (low and high vacuum) need to be controlled. In addition, the emission control facility automatically controls the emission of B-A gauges for low vacuum measurement. The operational status of all triggers and transmitter outputs are also displayed. Unit can be remotely controlled via one of available interfaces.
