Abstract

Vacuum gauges of this category use the deformation of an elastic element that is subjected to a pressure difference across it. The magnitude of deformation can be scaled by a mechanical transducer (cantilever) to a pointer moving above a dial scale. The deformation can also be converted to an electrical signal proportional to the deformation by an electromechanical transducer.
