Crystal nVision Reference Pressure Recorder

Reference Pressure Recorder

Accurate enough to replace a deadweight tester Rugged enough to sit in 3 feet of water Portable enough to complete calibrations anywhere

  • Gauge / Absolute Pressure Datalogger to  15 000 psi / 1000 bar / 100MPa
  • Differential Pressure with up to 0.025% of reading accuracy
  • Switch, Voltage, Current, and Temperature
  • 500,000 data points – 10 readings per second from 2 modules
  • Uses our new CPF hose and fitting system for fast, leak-free connections
  • Displays live data graphically – no PC required
  • Connects to a PC to view live readings or export to tamper-proof digital records
  • Compensates accuracy for temperature effects from -20 to 50°C
  • Includes a calibration certificate with test data at five different temperatures from an A2LA accredited laboratory

Do you rely on a chart recorder for plotting pressure changes over time? Crystal has a better solution for you. Its nVision reference recorder collects and stores up to 1 million data points at intervals of up to 10 per second. The information is stored in non-volatile memory, protecting it from power loss. And the battery runs for up to one year in ultra-low power mode.

You can read more about the nVision’s durability, accuracy, and reliability in the latest application note published by Crystal.

Description

Specifications

*Not recommended for oxygen service

Includes all effects of linearity, hysteresis, repeatability, temperature, and stability for one year.
All models indicate vacuum, but vacuum specification (typical) applies to 30 PSI, 100PSI, and 300PSI models only.
Not recommended for continuous use below -14.5 PSI. Refer to the XP2i-DP data sheet for gauges that are intended for continuous high vacuum use.
