DVG-64A LIFETIME SENSOR
The DVG-64A incorporates a revolutionary new sensor design that is highly resistant
to contamination. Unlike other vacuum gauges currently on the market, the DVG-64A
maintains working accuracy even when the sensor is contaminated with oil or similar contaminants. For many applications, the sensor does not require any cleaning for the life of the
sensor.
A contaminated sensor will decrease the accuracy of the instrument by about 5%.
To achieve optimal performance again, clean the sensor as outlined in the instructions.
Other vacuum gauges on the market today will decrease in accuracy by 500% to 1000%
when contaminated, or not work at all.
If the DVG-64A sensor is flooded with oil or other liquids, the instrument will detect this
condition and display SERR on the display, indicating that sensor cleaning is required. All that
needs to be done if this occurs is to shake the liquid out of the sensor.

OPERATING CONTROLS
To turn the unit ON, press and release the Power Button.
To turn the unit OFF, press and hold the Power button, until the unit turns OFF.
Pressing and releasing the Power button turns on the backlight.
Changing the scale: Press the UNITS button to change the display to the next scale.
The scale order is: Micron, mTorr, Torr, Pascal, mBar. The DVG-64A will keep the
scale settings even if the power is turned OFF.
CONNECTING THE DVG-64A TO THE VACUUM SYSTEM
The DVG-64A should be connected to the vacuum system at the vacuum port.
The “Auxiliary Port” is primarily for cleaning and should normally be closed with the
supplied cap. It is possible to connect the DVG-64A in-line, however it may restrict
flow and increase the evacuation time.

CLEANING THE DVG-64A LIFETIME SENSOR
It is recommended that the DVG-64A sensor be cleaned periodically to maintain unit
accuracy. Oil and other contaminants slightly reduce the accuracy of the DVG-64A unit.
Follow the instructions below for cleaning.
• Use an eyedropper to pour a few drops of ordinary rubbing alcohol into either port.
Keep the other port closed.
• Close the port with the supplied cap.
• Shake the DVG-64A unit for approximately 10 seconds. A slight movement of the
vacuum sensor in the case is normal and does not affect the internal connection
in any way.
• Open the vacuum port. Empty the alcohol and air dry the sensor.
Close the vacuum port with the supplied cap when the DVG-64A is not used.
This prevents contamination of the sensor.
Many of the vacuum gauge warranty returns are due to contaminated sensors. For vacuum
gauges that are heavily contaminated, leave the alcohol in the gauge overnight to clean the
sensor more effectively.
CHECKING HVAC SYSTEMS FOR LEAKS
When checking a system for leaks use only copper tubing and a vacuum proof valve.
Generally, standard hoses will not hold a vacuum. If using the blank-off valve on the vacuum pump check it for leaks periodically.
At the beginning of the test the DVG-64A reading may increase due to system equalization. The vacuum reading should hold after a minimum of 5 minutes. If the reading continues to increase it may indicate a leak in the system.

LOW POWER MODE AND AUTO SHUTOFF
If no buttons are pushed, the unit will automatically turn OFF to conserve
power, as follows:
• No Vacuum is Showing: 10 Minutes
• Vacuum is Showing: 1 Hour
When vacuum is showing, after 10 minutes of operation, if no button is pressed,
the unit will enter a low power mode. In this mode the unit updates the display
every 7 seconds, instead of every 0.5 seconds. The display will show “POWER
SAVE MODE” while in this state. This extends the battery life about 3 times. To
exit the low power mode at any time, press any button on the unit.
