Vacuum solutions specialist Pfeiffer Vacuum has released its new OmniControl unit, a device that allows for control of both total pressure and pumps.

Able to communicate with a range of products that support the Pfeiffer Vacuum RS-485 protocol, such as the HiPace, HiScroll, HiLove, MVP and DigiLine, the OmniControl mitigates the need for additional devices.

Control of the vacuum system is possible via its 3.5” touch screen, with total pressure and pump parameters also able to be displayed simultaneously, as well as providing the ability for gauges from the ActiveLine range to be connected.

Pfeiffer states that its devices are available with or without an internal power supply, those without can be used as a mobile device or as a rack mountable device.

A separate vacuum gauge controller is not needed, as the control unit comes with a gauge/IO option. Data items to be saved can be freely defined and values are able to be saved as a CSV file on a USB stick or MicroSD card.
