Select the Best Bayard-Alpert
Ionization Gauge for Your Application
An immense amount of research and development work, by many talented scientists and engineers, has
led to a variety of new Bayard-Alpert Gauge (BAG) product designs. In fact, a high vacuum user looking
for a new BAG might be surprised, and possibly overwhelmed, by the large number of new commercial
options that have become available. Standardization of the BAG design has made it possible for generic
ion gauge controllers, such as the IGC100, to control gauges from many different manufacturers.
This application note provides an overview of the current state of BAG technology to help high vacuum
users choose the best hot-cathode ion gauge for their application.
