Dynamic pressure sensors designed for industrial applications

The Pressure Division of PCB Piezotronics is introducing a series of industrial ICP dynamic pressure sensors. The Series 121A20/30 industrial ICP pressure sensors are offered in a variety of full-scale ranges from 100-5000psi (689-34473kPa) (for +/-5V output), with sensitivities from 1-50mV/psi +/-20% (0.145-7.25mV/kPa) and they feature all-welded, stainless-steel construction and a 1/4 NPT pressure fitting (a straight metric M14 thread is optional).

Each unit contains built-in microelectronic circuitry to deliver a clean voltage output signal. Electrical case isolation provides shielding from electromagnetic fields and eliminates ground loop problems. All units conform to relevant CE Directives.

The series is available with either a two-pin MIL connector or an integral, moulded, submersible cable assembly. The hermetically sealed stainless steel construction protects against contamination and permits use in harsh industrial applications. The devices offer the ability to detect very small pressure fluctuations in the presence of high static background pressures. Typical applications include detection of dynamic pulsations, surges, water hammer, cavitation and spikes in liquid delivery systems, paper slurry systems, pumps and compressors.
