7F Double Inverted Magnetron Cold Cathode Gauge - Vacuum Gauge

Part Number: 2-2144-052

The Televac 7F cold cathode gauge (also called a vacuum pressure gauge or cold cathode ionization gauge) has an extremely wide measurement range from 10-11 Torr up to 10-2 Torr (making it an ultra-high-vacuum or UHV solution). This vacuum gauge makes indirect absolute pressure measurements by ionizing gas in the presence of a magnetic field. Unlike hot filament vacuum gauges, the 7F cold cathode gauge is contamination resistant, and isn’t as easily damaged by inrushes of gas.

The design of this vacuum gauge allows for bakeout without disassembly. The 7F cold cathode ionization gauge can be operated by the Televac MX200 rack-mountable controller or as an active gauge via the MP7FR. Any vacuum controller will automatically operate the cold cathode to provide a full-range vacuum measurement solution when the 7F is used in conjunction with rough vacuum sensors like the 2A or 4A. Active vacuum gauges can also be combined using the MX2A/MX4A and MX7B to provide full range vacuum measurement with the 7F cold cathode ionization gauge.

Analog Output Behavior

7F Double Inverted Magnetron Cold Cathode Sensor – This sensor has a measurement range from 1 × 10-11Torr up to 1 × 10-2 Torr. It indirectly measures absolute pressure by ionizing gas in the presence of a magnetic field. Unlike hot filament sensors, the 7F is resistant to inrushes of gas. The design of this sensor allows for an extended range of measurement and high bakeout temperatures up to 400 °C. The 7F can be operated by several Televac controllers, including the MM200, MC300, and MP7FR. The MM200 and MC300 controllers automatically operate the cold cathode to provide a full-range vacuum measurement solution when the 7F is used in conjunction with rough vacuum sensors.

MP7ER Active Gauge – This gauge measures high vacuum from 1 × 10-8 Torr up to 1 × 10-2 Torr utilizing a double inverted magnetron sensor. It has a linear or logarithmic 0 V to 10 V analog output with a relay set point and an LED display of pressure.

MM200 Vacuum Sensor Controller – The MM200 controls any Televac vacuum sensor including cold cathode, convection, diaphragm, hot ion, and thermocouple sensors. It also has optional features including up to 8 relay set points and RS-232/RS-485 communications. The large, bright LED display makes it easy to read from a distance. The MM200 is a modular unit, allowing customers to choose a vacuum sensing solution specific to their needs.
