Do your gauges work for both liquids and gasses?
Yes. Our digital pressure gauges work on all fluid types, provided there is good chemical compatibility, the pressure range specifications match up, and you have an appropriate mounting method.
Can I program custom units of measure?
Yes. The gauges each come with an easy method to use a custom unit of measure using the push buttons on the gauge. Programming a custom unit of measure simply involves adding a multiplier that converts from PSI to your desired unit of measure. You then give the unit a label.
For example, if I wanted to convert PSI to Head or Feet of Water, I would use 2.31 as my multiplier, since I have to multiply PSI by 2.31 to get Feet of Water. I would then type in the label of my unit. I could call it FtH2O, or Head, or FtWater, etc. If I wanted Feet of Oil, then I would need to factor in the specific gravity of oil to come up with my multiplier. It's a little math, but you only have to do it once!
How can I get my display in a more convenient location?
You would simply order a tethered version of your pressure gauge. This places a cable (as long as you need it) between the display and the actual sensing elements of the gauge. You can place your digital display where it can be easily located and read.
Are your digital pressure gauges rated for outdoor use?
Yes, two of them are. Our PG7 and PG10 are suitable for use in outdoor environments with and IP67 and IP65 rating respectively.
How long is the battery life?
The typical battery life for our PG5 is 700 hrs. It uses a standard 9V alkaline battery. The PG7 uses AA batteries. The alkaline variety will typically get you about 2,000 hours. A PG10 will get you 8,000 hrs typically with it's C batteries.
In all cases, upgrading to lithium ion batteries will give you more battery life.
