Gauges are fully temperature compensated, so the accuracy is the same over the entire operating temperature range. All gauges are tested and calibrated inside environmental test chambers using computer-controlled pressure controllers. Unlike mechanical pressure gauges, M1 gauges have the ability to survive being dropped and subjected to large over-pressure events with no change in calibration.
Easy-to-read 5-digit display features large 0.66” H digits and a bright backlight. Water-resistant enclosure is a polyester/polycarbonate blend and has o-ring seal. The housing and included boot are compatible with many industrial fluids including Skydrol.® The pressure sensor is a piezoresistive silicon sensor with a permanent oil isolation system and integral filter.
