The Televac® MX200 EthernetIP vacuum controller (also called a vacuum control unit or vacuum pressure controller) can be connected to up to 10 Televac® passive vacuum gauges including cold cathode gauges, convection gauges, diaphragm gauges, and thermocouple vacuum gauges. It also includes 0 to 10 V DC analog outputs for each vacuum gauge connected to the vacuum controller, EthernetIP/USB digital communications for simple integration with a PC or PLC, and up to 8 optional set point relays to act as a vacuum pressure controller for process control in your vacuum system.

The MX200 vacuum controller’s user interface includes six touch controls and a high contrast, 180° viewing angle OLED display, which shows measurements from up to 8 connected vacuum gauges simultaneously along with the selected units of measurement and the status of set point relays. This vacuum control unit supports multiple gas types including nitrogen/air, argon, hydrogen, helium, neon, krypton, and carbon dioxide. The MX200 vacuum controller is a modular unit, allowing you to choose a vacuum sensing solution specific to your needs.
