The Model 6079 Barometer is housed in a black-enameled aluminum case and may be either wall or panel mounted. The case is air-tight, with a 1/8-27 NPTvent, which serves to admit atmospheric pressure to the movement of the barometer during shipment.
- Precision Movement
- Corrosion Resistant
- Withstands Marine Environments
- Mirror Scale
- Graduated in Inches of Mercury and Millibars
- NWS and U.S. Navy Approved
Both the sector and the pointer pinion are mounted using jeweled bearings. Two scale options are available; the first with units of millibars and inches of mercury, the second with units of millibars and millimeters of mercury. Both scales are equipped with a mirror ring to eliminate parallax errors in observed readings.
The aneroid barometers are manufactured to meet the requirements of Military Specification MIL-B-17089 and NWS Specification G 101 SPO04. These sensors are in wide use by both the U.S. Navy and the National Weather Service.
