A receiver pressure gage operates on the 3 to 15 psig pneumatic signal from a pneumatic transmitter. It provides a local indication of the transmitter’s performance. The dial is specified to match the range of the transmitter.
All blind pneumatic transmitters except (in most cases) level transmitters should have at least one receiver gage on the transmitted signal. The receiver gage should be mounted at a location convenient for the operator. For instance, if a control valve is associated with the transmitted variable, the gage should be readily visible from the manual bypass valve for field manual control. For split-range instruments, a gage should be visible from each bypass valve. A receiver gage is not required on level transmitters if the gage glass is readily visible from the bypass valve. Indicating pressure transmitters should have receiver gages if the transmitter cannot be easily read from the bypass valve.
