Pressure Sensors Deliver Extended Measuring Range for Hydraulic Applications

November 16, 2010

The pressure sensors for hydraulic applications feature a rugged, IP69K-rated design to withstand harsh environments. The sensors provide a wide measuring range from 3 to 400 bar. Signals are directly processed on the unit''s newly developed pressure measuring cell, and then digitally transferred to the sensor''s fully-potted, self-contained display. This design offers a high level of EMC resistance and excellent switch point accuracy: 0.5 percent of the full scale.
