New transducer with location indication

April 9, 2007

The new Ashcroft® Xmitr™ combines the advantages of the Ashcroft® PowerFlex™ pressure gauge with patented transducer technology to create a single, convenient, dual-function instrument. With only half the number of instruments to install, the Xmitr™ reduces the cost of purchasing, installing and calibrating multiple instruments. Serving as two instruments in one, the type X1009 provides traditional transducer features including 4-20mA and voltage outputs, CE ratings, and 1% BFSL accuracy with electronic temperature compensation from -20°C to 85°C. Pressure ranges from vacuum to 15,000 psi are available in both 2.5” and 3.5” configurations. These features allow the Ashcroft® Xmitr™ to replace Bourdon tube gauges and transducers in a wide variety of installations.
