Series G Ionization Gauge Tubes are hot cathode gauges of the Bayard-Albert Type intended for pressure (density) measurement from 10-3 Torr down to 3 x 10-10 Torr. These tubes have been designed to provide long trouble-free operation and are carefully cleaned, assembled and packaged so that they will not contaminate your clean system. Both the burn-out-resistant iridium type and the dual tungsten types are interchangeable.
Burn-Out Resistant Iridium Filament (G Series)
The burn-out-resistant filament is made of iridium with a layer of thoria cataphoretically coated on it. This provides long filament life and stable, easily controlled electron emission at relatively low filament operating temperatures. Because iridium does not oxidize rapidly, even at high temperature, occasional accidental exposure to atmospheric pressure while hot will not appreciably damage or shorten the active life of the filament. The burn-out resistant model is designed for convenient and reliable connection to standard connectors.
Dual Tungsten Filament (T Series)
The dual tungsten filament model is also designed for use with the same gauge cables. By connecting control unit filament leads to contacts "C" or "D" of the connector, either filament may be used by merely reversing the connector 180 degrees on the tube base. Because the two filaments are independently connected, one may be used to operate the gauge and the other operated as a desorption filament.
The bifilar design supports the grid at its midpoint so that the unsupported length of grid wire is only half that in conventionally wound grids. Thus the tendency to sag during outgassing is greatly reduced.
Bayard-Alpert Ion Gauge can measure vacuum from 10-10 to 10-3 torr.

Connector Plug Data
The G Series is designed for convenient and reliable connection to a standard connector. The burn-out-resistant version is mechanically and electrically interchangeable with similar models using Continental Connector Corp. type 7-16S connector. (Refer to above diagram).
Gauge Tube Pin Data
The two tungsten filament version is designed for use with the same connector. Connect control unit grid leads to contacts "A" and "H" and filament leads to contacts "C" and "D" of the connector. Filaments can then be switched by merely reversing the connector 180 degrees. This eliminates the possibility of damage to tube by applying grid outgassing currents to filament (s). (Refer to above diagram).
