    New BluVac LTE

    For those of you that are looking at the BluVac, but were looking for a lower cost version, ($179.95) it is soon to be on the shelf at TruTech Tools. We expect delivery of the BluVac LTE the week after next. The LTE version uses the same measurement technology at a 1 micron resolution without the productivity features.

    The AccuTools® BluVac LTE Digital Vacuum Gauge is a state-of-the-art digital vacuum gauge utilizing patent-pending technology to deliver the highest accuracy available.

    Operating for up to 300 hours on a single 9V alkaline battery, the BluVac LTE sports a large 1/2" numeric display and a bright blue backlight. The BluVac measures from 0—25,000 microns with 1 micron resolution.

    Possessing the same accuracy and reliability of the standard BluVac gauge, the LTE is ideal for budget conscious technicians without sacrificing performance.

    Innovative Oil Sensor and Self-Diagnostics ensure accuracy. The BluVac and BluVac LTE are the only field-calibratable vacuum gauges that require no special equipment for calibration.

    got a side by side chart or link to one for easier comparison?
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

    Thank You,
    This is insightful.
    Every problem gives us the opportunity to choose from several solutions: stupidity, ignorance, indifference, or brilliance. Which one will you choose?

    Aren't the Thermal Engineering micron gauges also field calibrated with no special equipment?

    Don't know if it's what you call special but this is what you need to field calibrate one from the two page instructions.
    FWIW A second vacuum gauge with know accuracy is on the list.

    THERMAL VAK-CHECK CALIBRATION INSTRUCTIONS
    EQUIPMENT NEEDED:
    �� DIGITAL MULTIMETER WITH 200mA RANGE
    �� TWO D CELL BATTERIES
    �� 47 OHM RESISTOR 1/4W or GREATER
    �� JUMPERLEAD
    �� VACUUM PUMP & VACUUM INDICATOR OF KNOWN ACCURACY
    Calibration should be performed in ambient temperatures of 70°- 90°F
