Variohm EuroSensor is launching the EPTT5100 combined pressure and temperature sensor as part of its competitively priced EP T pressure transducer range. The new device, available in a 0-1000Bar range with other pressure ranges on request, is sealed to IP66 and benefits from high-strength stainless steel construction with 316 grade for wetted parts. The combined sensor uses a high-level ASIC output circuit and a tried-and-tested thin-film strain gauge pressure measuring cell that contains no silicon or oil and no internal O-rings for safe and reliable operation.
With space-saving and installation advantages for the measurement of gas or liquid pressures and temperatures in hostile environments from –40 to 150degC, both sensor types provide an accuracy of more than +/-0.8 per cent and linearity within 1 per cent. Furthermore, the durable pressure sensor has an overrange rating of four-times rated pressure, and burst pressure to six-times rated pressure. The EPTT5100 has very resilient to shock and vibration loads, and its long-life design is rated at more than 10million pressure cycles.
The 22mm diameter industry-standard unit has various pressure port options and a single power supply voltage from 10-30V DC with a pressure output range of 0-5V DC and temperature range is 0.25-4.75V DC. An M12 connector is the standard electrical connection, with other options available.
Like its counterparts in the EPT pressure sensor series, the new EPTT5100 combined pressure and temperature sensor is aimed at demanding applications across industry and motorsports, including construction and agricultural machinery, HVAC, hydraulic equipment, refrigeration and many more. Through the EPT pressure sensor series, pressure ranges are available from 0-0.25Bar to 0-4000Bar.
