What does a barograph measure?

  • A barometer displays the present pressure and the change of pressure since it was last set using a marker hand on the dial.
  • A barograph records the history of the pressure on a paper chart, wrapped around a clock-driven drum.
  • Underway on a fully crewed vessel, the logbook serves as a detailed record of pressure changes.
  • On overnight anchorages, a printed barograph trace is a convenient way to learn how the pressure changed during the night when there was no watch to record it.

Measurement Range:

  • It uses a set of 7 aneroid capsules with a diameter of 62 mm made from copper-beryllium alloy. This material essentially eliminates age-hardening, hysteresis, and elastic after effects that could otherwise degrade the accuracy.
  • The influence of temperature on the set of aneroid capsules and the transmission system is compensated by use of bi metal components over the full measuring range and for temperatures between -30 to +40 °C (-22 to 104 °F).
  • All contacts in the movements are jeweled to reduce friction.
  • Measuring range used for altitude
