The DCP 3000 is an electronic vacuum gauge for rough and fine vacuum. Simultaneous connection of up to eight external vacuum sensors (four VSK 3000 and four VSP 3000) allows flexible measuring on the spot. A large illuminated display shows the measuring values of all sensors by a simple turn of a button. The VSK 3000 capacitive ceramic-diaphragm vacuum gauge head measures independent of gas type, is very corrosion resistant and has an outstanding measuring accuracy and long term stability. With the VSK 3000 gauge head, the DCP 3000 can measure down to 0.1 mbar/Torr. The communication of the DCP 3000 and the external components proceeds via the VACUU·BUSTM digital bus system. This system is characterized by fully automatic configuration, unified plug connections and cable lengths of up to 30 m. In addition, the DCP 3000 offers a relative pressure measurement feature (VSK 3000) and the possibility of working as a data logger for up to 32,000 data values.
