Precision aneroid barometers are used for measuring the absolute atmospheric pressure. The self-stable set of five aneroid capsules, used in our precision aneroid barometers, is made of a corrosion proof copper-beryllium-alloy. This alloy has been well established for measuring the atmospheric pressure since many years because of its remarkable elastic properties.
The aneroid capsules are nearly free of age-hardening, hysteresis and elastic after-effects. The influence of temperature on the set of aneroid capsules and the transmission system is compensated by a bimetal over the whole measuring range and for temperatures between -30 to +40 °C (-22 ... 104 °F). The motion of the aneroid capsule is transmitted to the axle of the pointer by driving a segment and wheel with an excellent fine finish of the gearing. All bearings have an excellent fine finish. The Instruments have only got a minimum of idle friction because of the advantageous shape of the levers and bearings.
