The INFICON Pirani Gauge Enhanced (PGE) DeviceNet version is equipped with the latest digital convection enhanced Pirani technology available on the market.

Due to the physical properties of convection this type of Pirani offers higher accuracy in the measurement range between 100 to 1000 mbar. The rugged gauge and sensor design in combination with many factory built in features, suchas the bright, sharp and clear OLED display with integrated keypad, selectable units of measures and 2 programmable set points makes the PGE500 DeviceNet version a high value/low cost of ownership choice. All these features qualify this gauge for many applications where an economical vacuum measurement from low to high vacuum range is required. 

The PGE500 DeviceNet version is a direct drop-in plug-compatible replacement for the DeviceNet version of MKS / Granville-Phillips® Mini-Convectron® (so called GP275 Modules). INFICON PGE500 spare sensor heads are also suited to replace Granville-Phillips® sensor heads.


  • Convection Enhanced Pirani Technology for wide measurement range and higher accuracy near atmosphere
  • All-in-One active gauge with built-in display, 2 set points, and digital DeviceNet interface
  • Bright digital OLED display with keypad for simple setup, calibration and operation
  • Factory pre-set display units for measure or selectable via keypad
  • User programmable set point relays (factory pre-set on request for volume orders)
  • Gold plated tungsten filament or platinum filament for corrosive applications
  • Mechanical strength, highly robust and less susceptible to mechanical shock and vibration
  • Field replaceable spare sensor units
  • Choice of flange options
  • Compliance & standards: CE, RoHS
  • Direct drop-in plug-compatible replacement for the DeviceNet versions of MKS / Granville-Phillips® Mini-Convectron® (GP275 Modules) Granville-Phillips® and Mini-Convectron® are registered trademarks of MKS Instruments, Andover, MA

Typical applications

  • Fore vacuum pressure measurement
  • General vacuum measurement and control form low to the high vacuum range
