Features to consider
When purchasing pressure transducers, there's a lot to think about to ensure that the product you get is right for the application in question. For instance, you'll want to consider the type of pressure transmitter required and the type of conditions it will be exposed to.
Most transducers are encased in a stainless steel housing, which provides corrosion resistance and robust protection.
• Electrical output
There are three main types of electrical output that can be provided by a pressure transducer. These are: millivolt, volt and 4-20mA.
• Ingress protection
The level of ingress protection will vary depending on your needs, but products are available with both IP67 and IP69 ratings.
A very important consideration, accuracy typically range from +/- 0.25-1.0 per cent.
• Over pressure
Since pressure can vary, it's a good idea to get a transducer that can deal with a degree of overpressure. A rating of 1.5x is common, but some pressure transducers are available with up to 4x or 10x overpressure capabilities.
