PB–Series: Portable Absolute and Gauge Pressure Transducers

PB-Series Portable Absolute and Gauge Pressure Transducers measure absolute or gauge pressure anywhere you need for all non-corrosive gases, making them ideal for on-the-go process calibration, verification, and validation.
  • Portable & durable. Built to be carried around, with a battery lifetime of up to 18 hours and drop-resistance.
  • Versatile measurement. Measure absolute pressure (referenced to vacuum) or gauge pressure (referenced to local barometric pressure) immediately upon powering up, with readings displayed in your choice of engineering units.
  • Fast & accurate. Millisecond response times immediately upon powering up with NIST-traceable accuracy to ±0.125% of full scale, for all non-corrosive gases.
  • Optional Bluetooth. Bluetooth now available on portable devices for use with the Alicat Connect app.
