Low Cost Industrial Pressure Sensors.
GE Druck announces a new series of low cost industrial
pressure sensors which provides a cost effective and
reliable solution for high volume/large scale measurement
This further expands the company's already comprehensive
product portfolio with an even wider choice of specifications
and price/performance levels, from high volume installations
to critical programme qualified applications in Aerospace,
Subsea, Motorsport and many other industries.
The 1500 series of pressure transducers (voltage output) and
transmitters (4-20mA) is offered primarily as a standard product
package for applications where batches of 100 pieces or more
are required. To enable rapid manufacture with minimal production
cost, choice of final mechanical configuration is two popular
options, an integral cable assembly or mini DIN plug/connector.
A G1/4 female threaded connection is standard and adaptors
can be supplied.
At the heart of the 1500 series, widely proven silicon sensor
technology provides inherently accurate and reliable pressure
measurement. This same technology has been continually
developed and manufactured by GE Druck for over 30 years
and is used worldwide for the most demanding applications,
for example on fighter aircraft and subsea wellheads.
Examples of the broad range of applications considered
particularly suitable for the 1500 series include plant automation,
refrigeration systems, pneumatic compressors, train braking
systems, gas volume correction equipment and fluid pump inlet
and outlet pressures, amongst others.
The high performance silicon technology combined with rugged
packaging ensures long term service and reliability, even in
harsh operating conditions. This ensures low cost of ownership.
Static accuracy of the 1500 series is better than 0.5%FS BSL
including effects of non-linearity, hysteresis and repeatability.
Thermodynamic accuracy is within 1% over -10 to 50 deg C
and ambient operating temperature range is -40 to 100 deg C
(80 deg C cable versions). Process media can be any fluid/gas
(<135 deg C) compatible with 316L Stainless/Hastelloy C276.
The 1500 series is fully compliant with the latest environmental
standards. Ingress protected to IP65/NEMA 4X, each sensor
is tested for EMC emissions (EN50081-1), EMC immunity
(EN50082-1) and supplied CE marked to Heavy Industrial
standard. A statement of compliance to the recently introduced
Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) is also provided.
