The Abbess Vacuum System allows items placed inside a vacuum chamber environment to be exposed to specified levels of vacuum pressure. The entire system can be controlled manually, by starting/stopping the pump(s) and opening/closing valves. Optionally, the Vacuum Cycle Controller (VCC) can be used to automate some or all of the control functions. The VCC enables system monitoring and control via panel-mounted pushbuttons and indicators and can optionally be controlled by a PC with a user-specific Graphical User Interface (GUI).
These systems can be configured as benchtop or cart mounted systems.
