Pressure Transducers

January 19, 2012

Pressure transducers from Palmer Instruments, Inc. generate an electric signal based on the pressure being exerted to calculate the flow, speed or level of gases and liquids. Choose electrical signal outputs in 4-20mA, 0-5V, and 1-10V with Packard, DINN or Cable type electrical connections. Available in six different series, Palmer Pressure Transducers feature ceramic, silicone or piezoresistive sensing elements for excellent linearity and outstanding inherent reliability. Quality housings of 304 or 316 stainless steel are rugged for long-term use applications in a wide variety of industries, including HVAC, water treatment, hydraulic control and monitoring, compressors, aerospace and process control. Accuracies are as precise as 0.2% of Full Scale, with maximum ranges of 8700PSI available on some models.
