ATEX Pressure Gauges | Sika Digital Pressure Gauges
Sika digital pressure gauges are particularly suitable for both stationary and mobile measurement and display of pressure in commercial, industrial and hazardous area applications.
Digital pressure gauges can be used as reference pressure gauges to simplify the checking, adjustment and calibration of other pressure measurement devices directly on site.
High accuracy in signal acquisition is achieved by using high-performance measuring cells with electronic linearisation of the characteristic curve.
Ease of use is assured by innovative design and Sika advanced technology – all essential functions for everyday use can be selected conveniently at the press of a button.
Excellent protection against dust and moisture is provided by a membrane keypad or rubber buttons. Integrated supplementary functions make our digital pressure gauges true all-rounders.
T&D distribute the complete range of Sika digital pressure gauges including oval gear and variable flow type meters.
SIKA Digital Pressure Gauge – BENEFITS

Sika digital pressure gauges can be used for a wide variety of applications such as:
- Continuous or temporary checking of a wide variety of system pressures
- Air density measurement in building shells for the detection and elimination of problem areas and avoiding structural damage
- Monitoring the degree of soiling of filter units in ventilation or air conditioning systems
- Recording pressure drops for the determination of leakage rates in leak tests
- Measurement of barometric air pressure for the determination of weather conditions
- Reference pressure gauge for calibration tasks
Sika Digital Pressure Gauges – Features
Tare / Zero-Function – User-defined zero point setting at the push of a button makes offset adjustment easy and eliminates the need for tedious mechanical adjustment. Single-point adjustment allows the linear characteristic curve to be shifted in positive or negative direction over the entire measuring range.
Display – The large digital local display shows the measured pressure and indicates the current status of the digital pressure gauge, even under poor lighting conditions. This eliminates the difficult task of reading a dial gauge and avoiding parallax errors. Needle jitter due to vibration or pressure fluctuations is eliminated. Display damping or averaging can be configured directly using display filters. This ensures easy, tireless readout.
Selectable pressure units – Another feature is the large selection of pressure units. Up to 6 different units are possible – far more than any complicated dual-scale or multi-scale gauge can offer. The required display unit is selected directly on the digital pressure gauge and is clearly indicated on the display. No conversion necessary; the desired value can be read directly.
Min / Max Displays and Peak function – Experience shows that excess pressure and pressure peaks significantly higher than normal operating pressure occur at some measuring points. Min / max displays and fast peak value measurement cycles in digital pressure gauges assist in system analysis and allow peak values to be determined. This allows incorrect readings and violations of range limits to be detected and helps avoid damage to pressure systems. Preventive service is often less expensive than repairing or replacing defective instruments.
Protection class – High IP protection classes (IP65 (front) / IP65) are available to minimise dust and water sensitivity. Rugged, impact-resistant digital pressure gauges are fitted with rubber caps for protection during transport and field use.
Battery operation / Auto-Off – Power is supplied by long-life batteries (ordinary or rechargeable). An external AC adapter can also be used. To increase battery operating time, a programmable Auto-Off function switches off the power to the instrument after prolonged inactivity. The electronics are designed for extremely low power consumption, which enables a battery life of significantly more than 1000 hours.
