Key features include:


  • Powered by 2 x 3V AAA batteries
  • Accuracy +/-0.4% FS
  • White Backlight with on/off capability
  • 4 Digit LCD display
  • Battery Life Indicator
  • Stainless Steel casing and connection
  • Functions:  On/off, backlight on/off, Unit measurement, calibration
  • Measurements: PSI / BAR / Mpa / Pa / Kg/cm²


The digital pressure gauge head on both the tyre pressure checking gauge and strut service tool is fully modular, allowing fitment to existing, in service hoses and adapters.


Marc Green, Sales Director for Newbow Aerospace said: “Newbow Aerospace has been supplying accurate tyre pressure checking gauges and strut service tools into the aviation industry for more than 50 years.  Many of our global customers still prefer analogue pressure gauges but in an era of digitalization, we decided that now was the right time to complement our wide range of analogue equipment by introducing a digital range.”
