The HPM-2002 OBE from Teledyne Hastings Instruments is a self-contained vacuum measurement device that has network communication and vacuum sensing capabilities combined into one unit. The ideal choice for industrial, medical and semiconductor industry applications, the OBE module was developed to provide users with a small, low-cost method of accurate vacuum measurement over a wide range of pressure.
One customer used several of these units to receive real-time readings from a central remote location, and had the added option of reading information directly from LED displays at each unit location throughout the network. The Hastings Instruments measuring device offered this customer, who operated in a clean environment, the additional advantage of remote communication via an optional RJ 11 cord. For onsite inspection, onboard electronics were fitted with an LED display.
When the same customer expanded its network to include DeviceNet, the HPM-2002-OBE Vacuum Sensor provided an excellent conduit for supplying power and communication. The HPM-2002-OBE easily configures with a DeviceNet feature that allows up to 64 nodes on a single backbone. This design offers expanded communication while saving valuable space for wiring.
The OBE electronics module is available through Pickering, Ont.-based Durham Instruments with many different types of signal output options for the user. Contact Durham Instruments for more information.
