All Sensors Corp. has announced the introduction of the Desktop Manometer, available for immediate purchase. The Desktop Manometer is provided in a kit complete with hardware and software to simulate and display an instrument-grade manometer. The Desktop Manometer consists of four components; a pressure sensor, small housing, interface cables (RS232 and USB), and software. Versions are available for three different pressure sensor series; digital, amplified, and amplified mini. Any digital, amplified, or amplified mini sensor can be used. Pressure sensor ranges are available from / inch water to 150 psi full scale. A high-accuracy barometer version is also available. Data acquisition can be measured in 12 standard pressure units. The software automatically produces a conversion between pressure units. Data sampling intervals range from 20 msec to 500 sec. Three operating modes are available; interactive, one shot, and free running. All Sensors Corp. http://rbi.ims.ca/4912-549
