SATA adam 2 - Putting into Operation
The SATA adam 2 displays the spray gun inlet pressure with an accuracy of
+/- 0.05 bar. The pressure can be precisely adjusted via the large
regulation wings. All SATA paint spray guns can be retrofitted with the
SATA adam 2. Thus, painters can keep the pressure always under control to
ensure precise colour matching and high quality finishes. Costly rework due
to incorrect pressure setting is a thing of the past. The display always
remains in the horizontal centre position ensuring perfect readability of
the pressure at all times.
