Find yourself guessing at your robots pneumatic pressure? We've designed a handy pressure gauge that displays pressure quick and easy. Its compact design encourage good habits centred around the VEX pneumatic system guidelines.

The technical stuff. Measurements and all that.

I like the idea of a pneumatic pressure gauge as part of the system. Using an external gauge like they often do results in you loosing air, and even removing the pump does. This would make sure you always have 100psi.

oh and that's a magnificent design process

I am a huge fan of this as this will keep teams honest with pneumatic who try to over pump to 120psi. If this was a piece that was required with pneumatics its moving part might get int the way of mechanisms on the robot but i guess you could wire and mount around that issue. I feel like this would make a great inspection tool to make sure teams arent overpumping
