Miniature high-performance pressure sensor in 10 pressure rangesVariohm EuroSensor is expanding its range of competitively priced pressure sensors with the new EPT1400 series for gas and liquid gauge pressure ranges to 250 bar. The miniature 304 grade stainless steel sensor is based on an M8 port configuration in a 14mm diameter, SW14 body with a nominal length of 32mm.

The EPT1400’s design features a hermetically welded, thin film measuring cell coupled with high-level output circuitry that yields a response time of <1ms with an accuracy of < +/-0.8 per cent and long-term stability of < +/- 0.1 per cent. Built for use in harsh environments, including automotive, heavy industrial, HVAC, off-road construction and agricultural applications, the sensor is sealed to IP67 and has a generous shock and vibration rating as well as an operational temperature range from -40deg to +125degC. The specification also includes an overrange pressure of up to 4× rated and burst pressure rating to 6×. With a working life in excess of 10 million cycles and a sensing element that contains no silicon and no internal O-rings, safe and reliable operation is ensured.

Variohm’s new sensor is available in 10 pressure ranges from 0 to 2 bar up to 250 bar with ordering options including a choice of 0…5V DC or 10….32V DC excitation voltage for a 0….4.5V output signal, and is available with 600mm free cable or a sleeved and booted option. Custom options are available on request and a combined pressure and PT1000 temperature sensor version, the EPTTE1400, is also offered.
