Pfeiffer Vacuum says its new OmniControl unit is designed to allow the comprehensive control of a complete vacuum system using a single device. It combines the control of the total pressure with the control of the pumps.
The unit communicates with products that support the Pfeiffer Vacuum RS-485 protocol (e.g. HiPace, HiScroll, HiLobe, MVP and DigiLine). This makes it possible to exchange and process data between various Pfeiffer Vacuum products without having to invest in additional devices. Optional gauges from the ActiveLine range (with analog output) can also be connected. The 3.5" touch screen with an intuitive user interface ensures easy and convenient control of the vacuum system. For example, a button for switching the devices on and off can be added. The total pressure and the pump parameters (RPM, power input etc.) can be displayed at the same time.
The basic version of the OmniControl is available with or without an internal power supply. Devices without a power supply are available as a rack mountable or mobile device for manual operation. This means that the control unit can be used either locally or at various locations. Rack mountable devices are also available with an optional table holder.
