KJLC® 423 Series Cold Cathode Gauges & 943 Controller

Note KJLC no longer offers the 423 gauge head and 943 controller. Please consider the KJLC Cold Cathode for a possible alternative. Please contact for further details or technical support.

Controller displays pressure from 10-10 to 10-2 Torr (mbar) using a high-visibility LED display.


  • Two types of analog output are standard, for remote monitoring of pressure
  • Internal converter provides output that enables a simple log conversion from voltage to pressure over the entire operating range
  • Fast-responding, buffered analog output is provided through the 15-pin accessory connector on the rear panel
  • Inverted magnetron design
  • Sensor can operate at pressures much lower than traditional Penning cold cathode sensors
  • Ideal for UHV use
  • No filament to burn out—sensor is not ruined by sudden inrushes of air and is resistant to vibration damage
  • No need to adjust emission current or to degas the gauge, reducing response time to pressure changes
