TELEVAC Vacuguard

The TELEVAC VacuGuard is a small, portable instrument designed for use with TELEVAC 2A thermocouple or competing DV-4 and DV-6 series thermocouple sensors. The VacuGuard is powered by a 1.5 V D cell battery and will accept either single-use or rechargeable batteries. Front-panel controls consist of a toggle power switch and a three-position sensor select switch. The digital display is a four-digit, seven-segment, 0.6” high, red LED protected by a grey neutral density filter making the display easy to read in bright ambient conditions. At 23 ounces, this lightweight instrument has a small size of 4” x 2.5” x 5.5” and can read from 1×10-3 Torr to 20 Torr.
