Red pen. The red pen records chamber temperature in degrees
(3) Blue pen. The blue pen records chamber pressure in pounds per
square inch absolute (psia) or BAR.
(4) Span/null. The Span/null adjusts the record's electrical measuring circuit
to a related pen arm position. This ensures accurate recording.
(5) Cycle counter. The cycle counter registers the total number of
completed cycles that have been run on the sterilizer.
(6) Door actuated switch. This switch energizes the recorder when the
recorder door is closed. It also de-energizes the recorder when the door is opened.

c. Data-Logger. The data-logger is a solid state printer. It documents and
records each cycle's performance including lot control, cycle parameters, and
diagnostics. It also provides space to record test results and has a digital clock display.
Refer to the special data-logger manual for details.
d. Chamber Pressure Gauge. This gauge constantly monitors the chamber
pressure in the following range.
Range: 0 to 30 inches mercury (Hg) vacuum pressure/ 0 to 60psia--1 to 4 BAR.
e. Remote End Control Head. The remote end control head displays the full
range of indicators and operative switches as shown in figure 1-2, except for time,
temperature, and cycle selectors. Enter all variable selections at the control end
f. Verti-Glide Door. The verti-glide door is counterbalanced for ease in raising
and lowering the door using the door handle. Do not use excessive force. The door
automatically latches when you gently raise it to the fully closed position. Press the
button in the door handle to release the door for opening. Steam pressure seals the
door for cycle operation.
