Digital manometers do indeed exist. They have yet to become standard, or even common, but they offer enough benefits for that to change. Digital manometers can send all process data directly to your control system via a wireless connection. That means the process operator won’t have to walk through every time pressure values must be read, only to change batteries.

One caveat – digital manometers cost more than regular ones. Otherwise, the benefits they can offer your company are vast. Another point – pay attention to the communication options.
