DPG10A User manual Version 10.2010
Page 6 / 82
1. PURPOSE AND OPERATING PRINCIPLE.
1.1 Purpose.
The DPG10A standard is a digital primary pressure standard, which combines the metrological
performances of fundamental pressure balances with the convenience of digital transfer standards.
The measuring principle of the DPG10A is based on the association of a piston-cylinder assembly,
similar to those used in pressure balances, with an electronic measuring cell.
The new DPG10A has been specifically designed for the calibration of last generation electronic
pressure measuring instruments: automatic controllers, pressure calibrators, transmitters and
sensors. Its measuring principle and its high-level performances enable it to be integrated in an
accredited calibration chain.
Moreover, the DPG10A’s pressure ranges are quickly interchangeable which ensures an easy and
accurate adaptation of the standard to any calibration application, from vacuum to 20 bar / 2 Mpa
gauge and absolute.
1.2 Operating principles.
1.2.1 Measuring principle.
The DPG10A’s measuring principle lies on the fundamental equation, which defines pressure:
P = F/A
It is based on the association of a piston-cylinder assembly, whose surface area A is perfectly
known, with a high accuracy electronic measuring cell, which measures the force F.
Pressure is applied on the piston, which turns it linearly into a perfectly proportional force that is
transferred to the measuring cell.
The measuring cell permanently measures and interpolates the pressure-generated force. It uses
the magnetic pot technology: the force, which is applied to the measuring cell, creates an
imbalance in a magnetic field. An electric power is generated to restore the magnetic field’s
balance: the measurement is based on the electric intensity, which is needed to find back the
balance. Then the microprocessor calculates the force-corresponding pressure, sets it according to
the environmental parameters and finally displays it.

DPG10A User manual Version 10.2010
Page 7 / 82
Therefore, the measurement is directly linked with the primary physical units of mass, length and
time. As a result, the DPG10A can offer metrological performances that no transfer system is able
to match.
The measuring cell is located in a reference chamber which can be evacuated for absolute pressure
measurements or vented to ambient pressure for gauge pressure measurement.
1.2.2 Auto-Calibrating Function.
The DPG10A’s Auto-Calibrating Function is equipped with an automatic-loading internal calibration
mass. The user can easily load the mass by pressing the [CAL] key located on the front panel of
the DPG10A. By applying this calibration mass, the user readjusts the deviation of the measuring
cell, which appears when there is a drift between two reference points (zero and the full scale value
of the measuring cell).
The DPG10A’s measuring cell may drift with time. This drift is due to the evolution of the measuring
cell’s response according to the environmental parameters. The main influence parameters are the
ambient temperature and the relative humidity. The use of the ACF enables the measuring cell to
free from this drift by readjusting the deviation of the measuring cell according to the new
environmental conditions.
It is also possible to command the ACF from a remote computer.

The user can optionally use a set of external calibration masses to replace the internal ACF in order
to check the measuring cell linearity. It is also possible to use these masses to run an external
calibration.
1.2.3 Environment Monitoring Module.
The measuring cell measurement changes according to the evolution of ambient conditions. The use
of the Auto-Calibrating Function ensures the easy adaptation of the measurement according to the
new environment conditions, whenever it deems it necessary.
Thereby, the DPG10A is equipped with an Environment Monitoring Module, which enables to
determine whether it is worthy to use the ACF.
The EMM is fitted with 3 sensors for ambient temperature, relative humidity and atmospheric
pressure, and their electronic components. When the ACF is in use, the environment conditions for,
which the measurements carried out by the measuring cell are valid are measured by the EMM and
stored in the internal memory.
After the calibration, the EMM keeps on monitoring the evolution of the ambient conditions in real
time.
Whenever these conditions vary in proportions that might noticeably alter the measuring
performance, the DPG10A displays the CAL warning flag to advise the user to command the ACF in
order to readjust the measuring cell to the new operating conditions.
The EMM warns the user according to the evolution of the environment conditions. Therefore, it
monitors the difference between the conditions that were stored during the calibration, at t0, and
the conditions measured at t+1, when the operation took place. Consequently, the sensors with,
which the EMM is fitted, are used for their sensitivity and short-term repeatability, and not for their
accuracy.
The warning flag is also sent to the command software when the DPG10A is operated from a remote
computer.

1.3 Measuring ranges
The DPG10A’s measuring range depends on two parameters:
- The measuring head piston-cylinder assembly Kn,
- The electronic cell measuring range (100000 g).
The various Kn make it possible to obtain several measuring ranges up to 5000 mbar.
The measuring heads are interchangeable, which ensures an accurate adaptation of the DPG10A
according to the range of the instruments to be calibrated.

Note: The Kn nominal coefficient is a conversion coefficient, which is specific to each type of
piston-cylinder assembly, whose surface area is such that the piston-cylinder assembly converts a
Kn.bar pressure in 1 Kg, in normal operating conditions.
The exact K will have to be defined.
There is two different model of DPG10A, the LP version and the HP version.
The LP version can works up to 10 bar maximum. This DPG is equipped with an integrated

3.2.2 Levelling the DPG10A.
To obtain repeatable measurement results at any time, it is absolutely necessary to place the
standard on a stable surface, in a position, which is as close as possible to horizontal. Leveling feet
and two bubble levels ensure the adjustment of the instrument according to the working surface.
Screw the leveling feet at the maximum, then unscrew the foot (or the feet), which is (are) opposed
to the bubble and to the level centre. The DPG10A is in the correct horizontal position when the air
bubbles are right in the middle of the levels. Several leveling stages are usually necessary to reach
a horizontal position. Take time to do it accurately will warranty adequate pressure measurements.
The description below pertains to start-up with the piston-cylinder already installed.
Position the standard accurately in using the 2 leveling feet and the bubble-levels.

probe cable to the rear panel connectors. A rear panel power switch ensures the power up of the
instrument.
- During the start-up, the front panel display indicates the initialization of the DPG10A. At the end of the
initialization, the standard automatically steps to the measurement mode, with the latest stored
configuration.
- Do not forget to select the voltage before powering up the standard (DPG8 II).
- Do not forget to connect the standard only to an earthed socket.
- The DPG10A must be connected to the mains with the power cable provided with it or with a
similar cable.
- Protect the plug and the socket against humidity.
After the DPG10A is properly set up and running, it must be zeroed in order to adapt its
measurement to current ambience conditions (see chapter 4).
After the DPG10A is properly set up, running and zeroed, it must be calibrated in order to adapt it
to ambience conditions of operation (see chapter 5).
If the user wants to make high-level accuracy measurements, within particular applications, it is
recommended to take the following precautions before starting each pressure measurement cycle
or before calibrating the DPG10A:
- Power up the standard at least 4 hours before the beginning of the measurements,
- Place the standard in premises where the temperature is stable.
- Stress the force sensor by applying a force to it, several times, one after the other.
- Stress the measuring head by exerting a pressure on it, several times, one after the other
operation enables to stress simultaneously the force sensor),
- Do not move the standard while the measurement is being done.

4. Zeroing the DPG.
4.1 Zeroing in gauge pressure mode.
The user uses this zeroing procedure only when he wants to operate the DPG10A in gauge mode.
To zero the DPG10A for absolute mode operation, refer to 4.2.
The DPG10A standard is fitted with a 10 Kg range measuring cell.
During the power up, the DPG10A detects and displays the zero from, which the maximum range
can be reached. If the user notices a slight drift, which is due to one of the phenomena that are
described below, he can “zero” the standard by pressing TARE. This operation consists in setting
the measuring head to atmospheric pressure to make pressure measurements.
Setup for DPG10A LP version:
Valve (2), (3) and (5) are open to the atmosphere.
Setup for DPG10A HP version:
Valve (2) is open, head is open to atmosphere.
In order to obtain accurate pressure measurements, the user must check that the display indicates
stable zero, 0, before he starts any measurement.

4.2 Zeroing in Absolute pressure mode
To perform absolute pressure measurement it is necessary to first zero the DPG10A with vacuum
applied on both sides of the piston cylinder assembly and then calibrate the force sensor to the
ambient condition.
DPG10A reference chamber is equipped with 2 vacuum ports. One port is used to connect a vacuum
pump while the second one can be used to connect a vacuum-measuring instrument, a controlled
leak valve or a plug.
Connect the standard as shown bellow.
Setup for the DPG10A LP version :
Valve (3) and valve (5) must be closed to isolate the DPG from atmosphere. Valve (2) must be
open to apply vacuum with the vacuum pump (6) in the reference chamber as well as on top of the
piston cylinder inside the measuring head (1).
Start up the vacuum pump and wait for at least 1 hour for a good reference vacuum to be
established on both sides of the piston and for the electronics to stabilize under vacuum conditions.
The first time you vacuum the DPG10A, or after a long usage in
gauge mode or in differential mode, it can take several hours
before getting very small residual vacuum value.
We recommend achieving a residual vacuum between 2 and 4
Pascal. Residual vacuum below 2 Pa is not recommended and may
create perturbation and or instability of the DPG.
When established, pressing the TARE button can zero the instrument.

9. METROLOGY.
9.1 Fundamental principle – Calculation of a pressure with the general formula.
Pressure measurement using a DPG10A pressure standard directly derives from the fundamental
definition of pressure. It is defined as being the ratio of a force to an area.
F
P=
A
F is the force.
A is the piston-cylinder surface area determined by the DH-BUDENBERG’s metrological laboratory.
The piston-cylinder assembly measuring performance first of all depends on the geometry of the
constituents (good piston and cylinder, thin clearance between the two elements) but also on the
influence of the environment on A and F.
9.2 Automatic pressure corrections.
The DPG10A is equipped with a system, which enables to take into account the external
parameters, constant and variable, that affect the displayed pressure calculation.

9.2.1 Kn determination.
The Kn conversion coefficient is determined by the DH-BUDENBERG’s laboratory. It depends on the
piston-cylinder assembly surface area and temperature, and also depends on pressure itself, as far
as high pressures are concerned.
The pressure calculation takes into account the force measurement, which is applied on the
measuring cell. This measurement depends on the local gravity and the air buoyancy during the
calibration.
The correction of these external parameters is compulsory in order to authenticate the results.
9.2.2 Local gravity correction.
The A piston-cylinder surface area allows the pressure calculation with the formula P = F / A.
Since the F force is measured by the cell with F = m . gl and the local gravity is only taken into
account during the calibration, it is necessary to correct the mass value, which is displayed by the
cell with the
gl / gn coefficient.
9.2.3 Air buoyancy correction.
The air buoyancy plays an important part in the standard’s calibration since the standard does not
measure a mass but measures a force.
The air buoyancy depends on the temperature, the relative humidity and the ambient atmospheric
pressure. These three parameters are measured through sensors, which are integrated in the
Environment Monitoring Module. This allows an automatic correction as well as a real-time air
buoyancy influence compensation during the calibration.
Therefore, we increase the accuracy of the pressure measurements obtained with the measuring
cell.
The M conventional mass of the internal calibration mass is calculated in normal conditions
(ρan =1.2 kg/m3, gn = 9.80665, t = 20 °C)
m = M . (1 - ρan / ρM)
During the calibration, the air buoyancy is ρa and the measured mass is m = M . (1 - ρa / ρM).
The air buoyancy corrected mass is then mcor = m . (1 - ρa / ρm) / (1 - ρan / ρm)
so mcor = m . (ρm - ρa) / (ρm - ρan).
Notes : The internal mass density is 7900 kg/m 3.
The DH calibration mass density is 7920 kg/m3 .
9.2.4 Measuring head temperature correction.
The piston-cylinder assembly’s surface area depends on the pressure and the temperature: dilation
of the piston and cylinder’s material.
1 - (α p + α c) (t – 20) stands for the temperature correction. α p and α c are the piston and
cylinder’s linear dilation coefficients. t is the piston-cylinder assembly’s temperature in °C.

In order to know the piston-cylinder assembly temperature, each measuring head is equipped with
a Pt100 probe. In the 0 – 40°C field, the temperature is proportional to the variation of the
platinum sensitive element resistance according to the equation:
θ=
Where
θ
Rθ
Ro
Rθ - Ro
0,3896
temperature in Celsius degrees
sensitive element temperature resistance (measured value)
sensitive element 0°C temperature resistance
(determined by DH-BUDENBERG’s laboratory)
0,3896 ohms conversion coefficient in Celsius degrees
To obtain accurate measurements, the Pt100 probe resistance value measurement is a 4-wire
measurement.
9.2.5 Piston cylinder pressure distortion correction.
(1 - λ P) is the correction term for the piston-cylinder pressure distortion. λ is called the distortion
coefficient. The DPG10A has a re-entrant mounting, the λ is thus experimentally determined.
9.2.6 Remaining Pressure in vacuum chamber.
Pvac is the remaining pressure in the vacuum chamber. The value of Pvac is measured by a built-in
Pirani Gauge and displayed on the bottom line of the front display. This value is added to the
pressure only if the option has been selected in the menu (see 7.4)

10. TECHNICAL DATA.
10.1. Dimensions/Weight/Power supply.
Dimensions (L x W x H): 60 x 50 x 50 cm. (Operational configuration.)
Power supply: 110/230 V – 50/ 60 Hz
Weight: 25 kg
10.2 Power supply.
The DPG10A is equipped with a socket, which integrates a CEE2 standards socket, a 5 x 20 mm, 2
fuses compartment and a bipolar power switch. A voltage selector enables the adaptation of the
DPG10A to each country’s voltage. That is the reason why the DPG10A is delivered with a power
cable and 2 fuses adapted to the voltage of the country (Cf. illustration 3.2.5).
Do not forget to connect the DPG10A only to an earthed socket.
Protect the plug and the socket against humidity.
10.3 Measurement cell.
The DPG10A pressure standard’s principle consists in measuring the pressure-generated force on a
piston-cylinder whose surface area is known. The balance measures the force, its resolution is
1 000 000 dots/kg i.e. = 10 mg.
10.4 Environment Monitoring Module.
The internal sensors integrated in the Environment Monitoring Module allow a measurement of the
ambient conditions (temperature, relative humidity, atmospheric pressure) and determine the air
buoyancy on the calibration mass (during the calibration).
The characteristics of these sensors are :
- Temperature: Pt100 probe, ± 0.2 °C,
- Relative humidity: capacity sensor, ± 5%,
- Atmospheric pressure: strain gauge, ± 2 mbar.
- Pirani Gauge ± 10% of reading.

11. MAINTENANCE.
11.1 General Maintenance.
No particular maintenance is to be performed if the DPG10A standard is used in accordance with the
operating instructions described in this manual. However, a regular maintenance made by an
authorized After Sales Service technician contributes to the constant accuracy of the DPG10A and
increases its lifetime.
11.2 Cleaning.
Clean the instrument with a humid cloth with a common cleaning product.
Never forget to disconnect the standard before cleaning it.
11.2.1 Cleaning the Piston Cylinder Assembly.
A good cleaning technique should remove all foreign material, leave no residue, polish the critical
surfaces of the piston and cylinder and remove remaining dust and lint before piston-cylinder
assembly. The following procedure is recommended:
1 - Clean the piston and the cylinder in hot water with a detergent that does not leave impurities.
Never immerse the piston head in the water.
2 - Rinse the piston and the cylinder with pure and warm water, then wipes each element with a
clean and non-fluffy cloth. Dry accurately the piston and the cylinder. Never re-assemble or
put in contact the piston with the cylinder when not perfectly dry. The tungsten carbide
particles of this material are kept together with cobalt metal that can be corroded. Use
leather gloves, never put in contact human skin with tungsten carbide polished surfaces.
3 - Install carefully the piston into the cylinder
4 - Immerse separately the piston and the cylinder disassembled in a solvent exempt of chlorine
and do a backward and forward motion.
5 - Remove the measuring elements from the solvent.
6 - Wipe the piston and the cylinder with a dry, clean and non-fluffy cloth.
7 - Dry the piston and the cylinder with a clean nitrogen spray, control that the pieces are perfectly
dry and set them together.
8 –Before installing the measuring element in its measurement head, rotate gently in your fingers
the piston in its cylinder. If the piston rotates delicately well, install the measuring element in its
measurement head.
9 - If the piston does not rotate well or stalls, repeat the cleaning operation starting at 4.

11.5 Calibration.
11.5.1 Standard's calibration.
11.5.1.1 Frequency.
The frequency of the DPG10A’s calibration has to be chosen by the user according to the
Metrological and Quality Assurance Standards, which he wishes to conform or, which are in use in
his company.
The experience, the operating conditions, and the level of measurement performance, which is
desired, usually determine it.
For information only, the DH-BUDENBERG’s experience reasonably recommends the user to
recalibrate the standard every 3 years in normal operating conditions.
Remember that, when he wishes, the user can very easily externally calibrate the DPG10A and by
this way perpetuate the accuracy of its measurements.
11.5.1.2 Method and means.
The DPG10A’s calibration consists in:
- Determining the Kn specific coefficient converting the measuring head piston-cylinder assembly
pressure in mass, and evaluating the associated uncertainty by comparison with a reference
pressure standard, then evaluating the uncertainty, which is associated with the DAC internal mass
calibration by comparison with external standard masses, finally evaluating the DPG10A’s global
measurement uncertainty by comparison with a reference pressure standard.
Note : Should you need any further details, do not hesitate to contact us.
11.5.2 Ambient conditions sensors calibration
The user has the ability to calibrate the atmospheric pressure and relative humidity sensors by
editing the values displayed by the reference instruments.
From the measurement mode, press ENTER to access the main run screen, select the EMM menu
with ∧, ∨, <, >, then confirm your choice by pressing ENTER again. The display is :

Note :
The temperature probe of the head must be used to set the new calibration data.
Remove the probe from the head and place it close to your own reference.
Wait until the temperature has stabilized and then set the value of the reference.
The ambient temperature is the temperature inside the DPG (where
the internal mass is located). It is normal to 3 to 5 degrees Celsius
difference between the internal temperature sensor of the DPG and
the temperature of the room.
11.3.2.4. Vacuum sensor calibration.
The internal vacuum sensor (Pirani) can be recalibrated but the user’s reading must be correct. A
better accuracy sensor like a Baratron for example, should be used to recalibrate the internal Pirani.
In order to recalibrate the Pirani, the user must perform a calibration cycle between 0.5 to 20 Pa
and then determinate an offset and a span.
The DPG will do the following correction :
P_new = (P_old - offset) / span.
The offset and the span can only be set via the RS232. The commands are OPI (offset in Pa) and
SPI (span).
If the internal Pirani has already been calibrated, the user should
set OPI = 0 and SPI = 1 prior to the calibration cycle.
If the user wants to use the readings from his sensor, he must set VACUUM OFF in the menu
SETTINGS (so no automatic addition of the internal Pirani is made in the software) but there, it is
not possible to connect the external sensor to the DPG and add this value to pressure reading. (it is
not possible to do it automatically if another sensor is used instead of the Pirani).
