Hydrotechnik launches new expanded range of pressure sensors
Made in Germany in partnership between Hydrotechnik & ADZ, the new product line offers an extensive choice of cost effective proven solutions for markets ranging from industrial machinery, process and environmental systems to automotive, rail and aerospace.
Featuring thin-film and diffused silicon elements, the ADZ piezo-resistive sensing technology is inherently accurate, small and robust with stainless steel construction.
This enables it to be readily adapted into many different sensor configurations for customer specific requirements; from a standard 22mm cylindrical transmitter to customised miniature transducers for critical measurements in confined spaces such as automotive engines.
Richard Price, Managing Director at Nottingham based Hydrotechnik said “In the 25 years that we’ve been supplying test and measurement equipment, we’ve consistently delivered high quality products that provide a perfect solution for customer challenges, backed by our highly technical support team.
“I’m confident that our newly expanded pressure sensor range will be well received as it offers more choice of performance, configuration and applications to address existing and new customer opportunities.”
Featuring ranges from 10 mbar to 4000 bar with excellent shock, vibration and overload ratings, Hydrotechnik’s rugged stainless steel pressure transducers and transmitters are suitable for all kinds of gas/fluid media, even in harsh operating environments with temperatures from -40 up to 200 degC. Gauge, absolute, vacuum and differential configurations are available and flush mount/open face diaphragms.
Dependant on user requirements, measurement accuracy at room temperature conditions (according to IEC 61298-2) can be supplied up to 0.1% of calibrated pressure range – equivalent to 0.05% BFSL (Best Fit Straight Line). This includes the combined effects of non-linearity, hysteresis, non-repeatability and zero/span offset.
All popular electrical outputs are available including 2/3 wire 4-20mA, voltage, switch and CANbus (CANopen 2.0A/2.0B) and example connectors include DIN, Deutsch, M12, Packard and Superseal amongst others. Intrinsically safe ATEX / Ex approved versions are available for use in Zone 0 and Zone 1 hazardous areas.
