Hi all, I am new here so nice to meet you all :)

i have a question regarding the possibility to monitor a pressure with my 34970A with 20 channels multiplexer and bench link data logger. 

I have a combi pressure head Penningvac PTR90 (it's a Pirani + penning) connected to a turbolab80 pumping system via FCC cable (very classic). The turbolab have a RS232 in the front panel, but i have no clues it could send an output  a signal. Then, i thought to connect the FCC cable directly to the data acquisition unit, record the signals (voltage i suppose...) and convert them to pressure via bench link data logger.

The question is: is it possible to monitor a pressure with my data acquisition unit? How could i perform a good pressure measurement with the components i have by hand?

Thank you :)
