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
    955 to 1055 hPa
    930 to 1030 hPa
    905 to 1005 hPa
    880 to 980 hPa
    855 to 955 hPa 0 to 150 m above sea level
    150 to 350 m above sea level
    350 to 600 m above sea level
    600 to 850 m above sea level
    850 to 1,100 m above sea level

  • The recording instruments are delivered complete with fibre pens and a year's supply of recording charts.
  • Weekly charts are the standard that are provided unless requested otherwise.


  • Fischer instruments are unique in offering an option on each model with enhanced dampening for barograph use at sea.
  • After you chose your model and timing option, the extra dampening can be selected.
  • There is no need for this option for land based operations.
