When you are in the market for a new pressure gauge for your process, configuration options can seem endless. You’re often asked to choose: a pressure range, pressure type, your preferred display options, gauge accuracy, process connection type and size, adapter types, pump systems, and carrying case or other accessory option. The list goes on and on depending on your application. That, paired with a specific budget in mind, makes for a tricky and time-consuming decision. In today’s post, we’ll be discussing a fairly priced, accurate, and reliable solution: the Crystal Engineering XP2i Series Digital Pressure Gauge.

Crystal XP2i: A Quick Overview

At first glance, the XP2i is a rugged, versatile, reliable option: it is available in three pressure types (PSI, bar, and kPA), is easy to use (no tricky menus here!), and accurate over the entire operating temperature range. In addition, every XP2i is Intrinsically Safe, carries a DNV rating, and has a NEMA4, IP66 water-resistant rated nickel-plated case.

This pressure gauge is IP67 certified, which means it is sealed against dust and water and is fully submersible up to 3 feet of water for 30 minutes. Additionally, the XP2i is shock resistant. The silicon crystal structure of the gauge allows the device to withstand a fall without affecting the accuracy. Lastly, the Marine Grade nickel-plated housing resists corrosion against all elements. If you’re looking for a reliable and rugged digital pressure gauge that will hold up its end of the bargain long term? Look no further.

Data Logging Requirements? No problem.

With the addition of the DataLoggerXP software, an end user can log and record up to 32,000 data points at intervals as fast as 1 per second. The saved data can then be transferred to an Excel spreadsheet. There is no additional cost to install DataLoggerXP on additional computers.

For more info, see the manufacturer's video below which highlights the DataLoggerXP software capabilities of the XP2i.
