Comparing the Model 209 and Model AXD

Advancements in technology have created a need for enhanced pressure sensing technology, the next generation of pressure transducers. To meet this new demand, we designed the Model AXD, the updated and improved version of the Model 209. The Model AXD is built leveraging the strength of the 209's variable capacitance sensor paired with a new electronics platform. With enhanced performance through digital signal conditioning and a rugged, laser-welded construction, the Model AXD has the reliability and accuracy necessary for industrial and OEM applications.

Vacuum Pressure Sensing in Medical Devices

Vacuum pressure sensors are employed in a range of industrial applications, from high-speed injection molding to semiconductor manufacturing to raw material handling. They can also be found in many different medical and dental devices. These types of medical and dental devices utilize a relatively low vacuum pressure to remove matter. Depending on the specific application, these devices vary from finely controlling aspiration in human organs to saliva ejectors at the dentist. Certain surgical equipment will evacuate minuscule amounts of matter or tissue that are removed as part of a medical procedure. Vacuum sensors can also be used for pressure testing disposable medical devices to ensure there are no leaks.

Case Study: Meeting Current and Future Codes with Setra FLEX

Undergoing renovation and expansion leads to a hospital reconsidering its critical environment monitoring for the present and the future. The medical facility in question was looking for room pressure monitors that would meet existing and any new codes and guidelines released in upcoming years. They didn't want to install room pressure monitors to be only minimally code compliant; rather, they were looking to meet requirements and monitor many ASHRAE Standard 170 spaces that don't strictly require monitors. Monitoring is crucial for proper cleanliness conditions, and the Joint Commission and CMS inspectors tend to scrutinize all ASHRAE 170 pressurized spaces.
