The ITR 90 transmits the measured values via RS232. The protocol is given in the detailed manual.
I wrote a software to read out the vacuum gauge with you computer:
Mapping of the RS232 port to the DSUB15 connector on ITR90:
|Connector DSUB15||Meaning RS232|
|Pin 13||TxD (Transmit Data)|
|Pin 14||RxD (Receive...|
The XGS-600 Gauge Controller accepts any of three different kinds of gauge cards which, between them, operate all Agilent vacuum gauges. Choose from
- Convection gauges such as thermocouple or ConvecTorr
- Hot filament ion gauges
- Inverted magnetron (cold cathode or Penning) gauges
Up to six cards can be installed in the XGS-600 Controller, in...
