THE PACE 5000 pneumatic pressure controller/indicator is the first in a new generation of high precision modular instrumentation for rack-mounting or bench top applications from GE Sensing and Inspection Technologies.

THE PACE 5000 — designed primarily for 19-inch rack systems.

It employs full digital control to provide high control stability and high slew rate, while its unique modular concept allows users to enjoy quick and easy parts replacement and significantly reduced instrument downtime.

The PACE 5000 is based on the field-proven and highly reliable Druck DPI 520 platform but, incorporating the latest generation of piezo-resistive devices, it offers significant improvements in overall precision, long-term measurement stability and control performance.

Designed primarily for 19-inch rack systems, it is equally at home as a bench top instrument and is ideal for integration into automated processes, where fast and accurate pressure control is required.

Multiple units can be combined in the same system to provide a full range of pressure calibration capability from 70 mbar to 210 bar. It is available in a choice of two performance specifications, so that the correct instrument can be selected for each installation.

The modular design of the new controller/indicator allows users to enjoy quick and easy parts replacement and fast pressure range change-over.

At the same time, a replacement modular component can be fitted in the instrument so that downtime is significantly reduced.

A touch screen and a high-resolution 1/4 VGA display ensure that the PACE 5000 is extremely easy to operate and read. A simple icon menu allows easy and intuitive set-up of controller parameters and it enjoys comprehensive connectivity, via RS232, IEEE or CANbus.

A USB communications port provides for easy PC and peripherals connection, the use of set-up software and diagnostics downloads for technical support.

The functionality of the PACE 5000 includes many of those features associated with the Windows CE platform, including the ability to view pdfs, such as manuals and jpegs and to provide point-of-use help and applications support.

The PACE 5000 has been designed to communicate with the Druck Intecal software, which was specifically developed to provide support for both laboratory and field calibrations. This provides easy control in a fully integrated pressure loop, giving 100% automated calibration of pressure transducers and transmitters.

The software has full documenting facilities to prepare reports and provide calibration certificates from its database, utilising readout data from connected calibration equipment and test devices. In addition, the calibration and maintenance history of the PACE 5000, along with its configuration, is stored within the instrument.

The calibration history is automatically updated each time a calibration is carried out to ensure that calibration records are always up-to-date to meet quality assurance standards.

The PACE 5000 comes with a range of accessories, including external CANbus and analogue output and operating and set-up menus can be provided in the major European languages, Russian, Chinese and Japanese as well as English, which is the default language. Additional languages can be downloaded via a PC utility.
