When conducting multiple tests using different test pressures, operators face the problem of constantly adjusting manual air pressure regulators.

Uson has produced an application note describing how the use of an automatic air pressure regulator can streamline the leak testing of products requiring a "cracking pressure" type of leak test ( for example testing of valves) or when multiple products requiring different test pressures are encountered.

The programmable regulator can be useful in bench or automated systems. One tester using the programmable regulator can be used in place of multiple machines set at different fixed pressures. Use a programmable regulator in critical applications where it is important to prevent users from changing the machine setup.
