INSTALLATION
Select a location free from excessive vibration and where the
ambient temperature will not exceed 140°F (60°C). Also, avoid
direct sunlight which accelerates discoloration of the clear plastic cover. Sensing lines may be run any necessary distance.
Long tubing lengths will not affect accuracy but will increase
response time slightly. Do not restrict lines. If pulsating pressures or vibration cause excessive pointer oscillation, consult
the factory for ways to provide additional damping.
All standard Magnehelic® Differential Pressure Gages are
calibrated with the diaphragm vertical and should be used in
that position for maximum accuracy. If gages are to be used in
other than vertical position, this should be specified on the
order. Many higher range gages will perform within tolerance in
other positions with only rezeroing. Low range models of 0.5”
w.c. plus 0.25” w.c. and metric equivalents must be used in the
vertical position only.

Locate mounting holes, 120° apart on a 4-1/8” dia. circle. Use

FLUSH MOUNTING
*The blowout plug is not used on models above 180 inches of water pressure, medium or high pressure models,
or on gages which require an elastomer other than silicone for the diaphragm.
STANDARD GAGE ACCESSORIES: Two 1/8˝ NPT plugs for
duplicate pressure taps, two 1/8˝ pipe thread to rubber tubing
adapters and three flush mounting adapters with screws.
MP AND HP GAGE ACCESSORIES: Mounting ring and snap
ring retainer substituted for 3 adaptors, 1/4” compression fittings
replace 1/8” pipe thread to rubber tubing adaptors.
OVERPRESSURE PROTECTION: Standard Magnehelic®
Differential Pressure Gages are rated for a maximum pressure of 15 psig and should not be used where that limit could be
exceeded. Models employ a rubber plug on the rear which functions as a relief valve by unseating and venting the gage interior when over pressure reaches approximately 25 psig
(excludes MP and HP models). To provide a free path for pressure relief, there are four spacer pads which maintain .023˝
clearance when gage is surface mounted. Do not obstruct the
gap created by these pads.
SPECIFICATIONS
Service: Air and non-combustible, compatible gases. (Natural
Gas option available.)
Wetted Materials: Consult factory.
Housing: Die cast aluminum case and bezel, with acrylic
cover. (MP model has polycarbonate cover).
Accuracy: ±2% of full scale (±3% on - 0, -100 Pa, -125 Pa,
10MM and ±4% on -00, - 00N, -60 Pa, -6MM ranges),
throughout range at 70°F (21.1°C).
Pressure Limits: -20˝ Hg to 15 psig.† (-0.677 bar to 1.034
bar); MP option: 35 psig (2.41 bar), HP option: 80 psig (5.52
bar).
Overpressure: Relief plug opens at approximately 25 psig
(1.72 bar), standard gages only. The blowout plug is not used
on models above 180 inches of water pressure, medium or
high pressure models, or on gages which require an elastomer
other than silicone for the diaphragm.
Temperature Limits: 20 to 140°F (-6.67 to 60°C). *Low
temperature models available as special option.
Size: 4˝ (101.6 mm) diameter dial face.
Mounting Orientation: Diaphragm in vertical position.
Consult factory for other position orientations.
Process Connections: 1/8˝ female NPT duplicate high and
low pressure taps - one pair side and one pair back.
Weight: 1 lb 2 oz (510 g), MP & HP 2 lb 2 oz (963 g).
Agency Approvals: RoHS.
OPERATION
Positive Pressure: Connect tubing from source of pressure to
either of the two high pressure ports. Plug the port not used.
Vent one or both low pressure ports to atmosphere.
Negative Pressure: Connect tubing from source of vacuum or
negative pressure to either of the two low pressure ports. Plug
the port not used. Vent one or both high pressure ports to
atmosphere.
Differential Pressure: Connect tubing from the greater of two
pressure sources to either high pressure port and the lower to
either low pressure port. Plug both unused ports.
When one side of the gage is vented in dirty, dusty atmosphere,
we suggest an A-331 Filter Vent Plug be installed in the open
port to keep inside of gage clean.
A. For portable use of temporary installation use 1/8” pipe
thread to rubber tubing adapter and connect to source of pressure with flexible rubber or vinyl tubing.
B. For permanent installation, 1/4” O.D., or larger, copper or aluminum tubing is recommended.
MAINTENANCE
No lubrication or periodic servicing is required. Keep case exterior and cover clean. Occasionally disconnect pressure lines to
vent both sides of gage to atmosphere and re-zero. Optional
vent valves should be used in permanent installations. The
Series 2000 is not field serviceable and should be returned if
repair is needed (field repair should not be attempted and may
void warranty). Be sure to include a brief description of the problem plus any relevant application notes. Contact customer service to receive a return goods authorization number before shipping.
WARNING
Attempted field repair may void your warranty. Recalibration or
repair by the user is not recommended.
Provide a 4-9/16” dia. (116 mm) opening in panel. Provide a 43/4” dia. (120 mm) opening for MP and HP models. Insert gage
and secure in place with No. 6-32 machine screws of appropriate length, with adapters, firmly secured in place.
TROUBLE SHOOTING TIPS
Gage won’t indicate or is sluggish.
1. Duplicate pressure port not plugged.
2. Diaphragm ruptured due to overpressure.
3. Fittings or sensing lines blocked, pinched,
or leaking.
4. Cover loose or “O”ring damaged, missing.
5. Pressure sensor, (static tips, Pitot tube,
etc.) improperly located.
6. Ambient temperature too low. For
operation below 20°F (-7°C), order gage
with low temperature, (LT) option.
PIPE MOUNTING
To mount gage on 1-1/4” - 2” pipe, order optional A-610 pipe
mounting kit.
TO ZERO GAGE AFTER INSTALLATION
Set the indicating pointer exactly on the zero mark, using the
external zero adjust screw on the cover at the bottom. Note that
the zero check or adjustment can only be made with the high
and low pressure taps both open to atmosphere.
†For applications with high cycle rate within gage total pressure rating,
next higher rating is recommended. See Medium and High pressure
options.
Note: May be used with hydrogen when ordering Buna-N diaphragm.
Pressure must be less than 35 psi.
