With the uncompromising resolution and accuracy of the WPS500X Automotive Pressure Transducer you can perform quick and accurate pressure analysis of many automotive systems.


The WPS500X features an extremely fast 100 µs response rate from 0% to 90% of full scale and sensitivity down to about 0.07 psi (5 mbar). This provides you with an accurate representation of rapidly changing signals that span across a broad pressure range.

  • Accurately measure up to 500 psi
  • Ultra–fast 100 µs response time
  • Zoom function for enhanced analysis capabilities
  • Internal rechargeable LiPo battery
  • Integrated pressure relief / bleed–off valve
  • Auto zeroing
  • High noise immunity
  • Temperature compensated

Performance & Versatility

The three pressure ranges of the WPS500X allow for accurate measurement and analysis of many automotive pressures including cylinder compression, fuel pressure, intake manifold vacuum and even pulses from the exhaust.

Range 1

The first range gives you high resolution and accuracy for high–pressure tests such as cranking and running cylinder compression or fuel pressure testing. Not only is this test a great way for you to find compression issues, but it is also an excellent way for you to identify cam timing issues such as jumped timing belts and stretched timing chains — this is especially useful on multi-cam engines that may not have a cam sensor on each camshaft.

Range 2

The second range measures from -15 to 50 psi(approximately -1 to 3.45 bar). This range is ideal for vacuum tests and fuel system tests. When testing these systems you will find the zoom function is especially useful as it makes it easy to analyse the valves operating with the vacuum waveform, or the injectors through the fuel waveform.

Range 3

With the third range you can measure-5 to 5 psi (approximately -0.34 to 0.34 bar). This setting is sensitive enough to allow you to analyse small pressures or pulses such as pulses from the exhaust.
