Our cold cathode 423 gauges are 10 years old. They get insulated by age and show no ionization current.  We should replace them at the next vent. I'm buying 4 at $317ea


 We have two CC1 gauges at the pump spool. One is in vertical position and the spare is in horizontal. Today I switched the cable from vertical to horizontal CC1

This one is reading higher pressure. It is an old dirty gauge. It may trigger the RGA protection when it's reading goes above 1e-5 torr

The real pressure is 2e-6 torr
