Redesigned housing improves transducer’s robustness .

HBM has redesigned the housing of its P8 absolute pressure (P8AP) transducer and introduced an improved cable outlet to optimize vibration resistance. Stresses arising from any forces acting on the substantially more robust cable are distributed efficiently to further improve performance.

The P8AP can be connected in 6-wire circuit to effectively eliminate accuracy losses resulting from longer cable lengths.

Because of its high overload capacity, the P8AP version of the P8 transducer is used in many measurement applications, for example in mobile testing or mobile test benches. For mobile weighing applications, the pressure transducer is used as a diaphragm type load cell with the type name P8WT. It is legal for trade per OIML R60 up to 300 divisions. IP 67 protection is guaranteed for both transducer types.

The transducer is also available in the high-temperature versions T2, T9, and TH for a maximum of 140 degree Celsius.
