Product Overview: Vaetrix ETG Process Gauge
The Vaetrix ETG Process Gauge makes precise pressure measurement applications possible by utilizing the most recent digital technology. All MEMS pressure sensors have complete temperature compensation across the whole operational range. The user-friendly interface and clear menu layout are the best in the business. The menu can be navigated with the arrow keys, and there are no obscure symbols or abbreviations. With over thirty years of experience creating process instrumentation, we take great satisfaction in designing and manufacturing our products here in the USA. A four-year warranty is offered to guarantee performance and dependability.

WHY DID WE CREATE TIMED TEST MODE?
Historically, in residential gas service testing, technicians were required to perform pressure integrity tests at the main distribution line as well as at the residential service line itself. While the main line tests could last 4-8 hours, the service tests at the residence may only last 10 minutes and typically do not require temperature records. Technicians were manually recording the start pressure, waiting 10 minutes, then manually recording the end pressure to document their test for inspectors. How did they accomplish documenting this test in a quantifiable way with a time stamp? CELL PHONE PICTURES! They took a picture of the gauge pressure at the start with a time stamp, and then a picture after 10 minutes with the end pressure and a time stamp. They then uploaded the pictures in their final report for visual proof.
THE PROBLEMS: (1) Remembering to check the gauge at exactly 10 minutes from the start time in order for the test to be valid; (2) No record or proof of any leakage between the 10-minute time period unless watching the gauge the entire test. (3) No physical document for proof of the test being properly performed, heavy reliance on cell phone pictures, times and word of technician – no data points. Read more about Timed Test Mode here.
