A New STAR On Its Way To The Market BAG402

28 Jun 2015
Description
INFICON is the leading manufacturer of Hot Ionization Vacuum Gauges and delivers this gauge
technology into several major and minor applications.
If we talk on Hot Ionization gauges, then some customers aren’t allowed to combine the Hot
Ionization gauge with any complementary technology (e.g. isolation valve). In these cases we
couldn’t offer that option.
Now, we will complete our Hot Ionization gauge offering with a dual filament Bayard-Alpert gauge
by SEMI West. Basically, we just took out the Pirani from the BPG402-S. It’s called BAG402 and it
comes in three different electronics and two flange versions.

The BAG402 with DSUB9 is interface compatible (GP Signal output and pin compatible) to our
competition. It directly compete with the Granville-Phillips Micro-Ion Module 354/347, Edwards AIXS
and the Instrutech Hornet 401. With this gauge OEM-customers can switch to our BAG402
without tool-redesign and we also can attack existing enduser’ market of GP, Instrutech, and
Edwards. This version will be available in July 2014.e
 
The BAG402-S with DSUB15 focuses on the OEM-market for new tools. That means in order to
save the future’s replacement market, the offered gauge type must have a different connector than
the market competitors. This version is also as EtherCAT version available and it will be available
by the end of this year.
Additionally, the BAG402-S with DSUB15 addresses the replacement market of the BAG100 and
ITR100 and offers the mantissa and exponent output of the BAG100. This version will be available
by the end of this year.
If any customer is interested in our DSUB15 version of the BAG402-S earlier, then we offer the
BPG402-S for the same price until the BAG402-S becomes available.
