Notes:
[1] Measurement uncertainty defined as the maximum deviation from the indicated value of measured pressure for 1 year after alignment including hysteresis, linearity, repeatability, stability, temperature, humidity effects, and calibration reference standard measurement uncertainty. Expression of uncertainty uses a coverage factor of 2 and conforms with the recommendations of the ISO Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement.
[2] Negative gauge and vacuum pressure values assume the ambient atmospheric pressure is approximately 101 kPa (14.7 psi) absolute.

[2] Assumes 100 cc test volume with external gas supply.
[3] Assumes 50 cc test volume with external gas supply.
[4] Assumes 25 cc test volume with external gas supply.
[5] Set times assume pressure steps of no greater than 10% of target pressure and reflect time to ready using default control limits in dynamic control mode.
[6] Times for sub-atmospheric set points assume that the temperature is below the boiling point of any liquid in the UUT and CPS for the target pressure.
[7] Negative gauge and vacuum pressure values assume the ambient atmospheric pressure is approximately 101 kPa (14.7 psi) absolute.
