The TPI 608 single-input digital manometer has a + or - 60 inH2O measuring range and a + or - 1% full scale accuracy for measuring pressure and vacuum of dry, non-corrosive air and gas. The instrument displays measurements in inH2O, psi, mbar, and KPa. The LCD displays measurements in inches of water, psi, mbar, and KPa, and has a backlight LCD for reading in a variety of lighting conditions. The one-touch zero feature provides field calibration. The manometer automatically shuts off after 40 minutes to extend battery life. A built-in hanging hook and back-mounted magnet provides hands-free use.

Manometers measure the pressure of a liquid or gas. They are used in laboratory, medical equipment, engineering, automotive, and heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning applications. Manometers measure any combination of gauge, absolute, or differential pressures. Gauge pressure is the amount of pressure in a system relative to the ambient pressure, absolute pressure is the amount of pressure in a system relative to an absolute vacuum, and differential pressure is the difference between two pressures. Analog manometers are composed of columns of liquid, and they use gravity and the liquid's density to calculate pressure. Because they have no moving parts, analog manometers do not require re-calibration. Digital manometers have pressure sensors that are connected to a system with a hose to provide a digital readout of the amount of pressure present in a system. They use microprocessors to calculate pressure, and they require periodic calibration to help ensure accuracy.
