The Mensor CPG2400 (formerly DPG2400) pressure indicator is a low cost, single range pressure measuring instrument. With an uncertainty of 0.03% FS and a small package design, this unit is perfect as a desktop pressure monitor or a barometer. The unique design of the CPG2400 provides peak and null features, selectable from the main menu screen. Pressure units are selectable from a choice of 17 different units and one user defined unit. The small package, combined with lower uncertainty levels, make this a perfect choice where high levels of uncertainty are not required and cost is a concern.
The CPG 2400 is ideal for use as a desktop pressure monitor, barometer, or in production and test environments as a replacement for test gauges. The CPG2400 is temperature compensated from 15 to 45 degrees Celsius and can be used in this range without degradation of accuracy. Pressure ranges are available in either absolute, gauge or bidirectional modes from as low as 10 in.H2O to as high as 6,000 psi. The price and accuracy of the CPG2400 makes it an ideal replacement for a mercury manometer in environments where mercury may be a hazard. It is used in the health care industry, weather monitoring (as a barometer), and as a process or laboratory pressure indicator.
The CPG2400 has a clear LCD display with an intuitive menu structure for easy navigation within the setup screens. A membrane key pad provides the user the capability to navigate within these menus to set display features such as peak, null, pressure units. It also allows access to a password protected calibration section for recalibration of the internal sensor. The CPG2400 can be operated from a remote computer via a RS-232 or RS-485 serial port connection. The serial port can be used to configure, read or calibrate the sensor. This is useful when remote indication of the pressure is required. RS-232 is used for communication over short distances and the RS-485 for longer distances and multidrop applications.
This product can be used in the following applications:
Here's how some of our customers used this product.
Monitoring Barometric Pressure In a Hospital
The Background: Our customer is a hospital seeking a highly accurate pressure indicator for their Radiation Oncology Department.
The Problem: For certain treatments, barometric pressure and room temperature are key elements for determining the proper dosage for each individual patient. In the case of proton therapy, the barometric pressure is read at least twice per day, more often during sudden weather changes. This requires a highly accurate, easy-to-use pressure indicator.
The Solution: We recommended the Mensor CPG2400 pressure indicator, a cost-effective, single-range instrument with an uncertainty of just 0.03% FS. The CPG2400 is easy-to-use and measurements are shown on the digital display.
Simple, Low Cost Lab Barometer
The Background: Our customer is a small metrology lab that performs a range of calibrations. They need to update some of their environmental monitoring instruments.
The Problem: NIST and ISO require laboratory conditions be stable during the performance of testing and data collection as environmental conditions have a direct impact on the accuracy and consistency of test results.
The Solution: Using the barometer version of the Mensor CPG2400, the customer is able to confirm the accuracy of the recorded barometric pressure in the lab on all tests performed.
