Sensor-Technik UK is introducing the new C21 digital pressure gauge and switch as a highly versatile and flexible pressure measurement system. The indicator can be supplied in a plain aluminium housing, with the sensor mounted internally or externally. Optional mounting brackets are available if required.
Compared with a pressure sensor with a built-in display or an analogue or digital gauge and pressure switch combination, the C21 is claimed to be more cost-effective. In addition, there are other benefits - such as flexible mounting, an easy-to-read display and a readout that can be fitted wherever the operator is located.
The pressure measurement system has been specifically designed for hydraulic applications, for direct reading in any engineering units including bar, lb/in2, kg, Newton etc. It has a four-digit red LED display with automatic range change from 0.1 to 1 digit.
As supplied, the pressure sensor and indicator comes in a handy desktop box with all cables and connectors as a matching set, scaled and ready for use without any further setup.
UKAS-approved certificates can be supplied by an independent calibration company to verify the readings, making it possible to use the equipment as a traceable standard.
Sensor-Technik UK offers the C21 in standard pressure ranges from 1 to 3000bar; if required, special ranges can be supplied. The standard series is designed to withstand high overpressure and pressure shocks, high mechanical vibration shock, and to withstand the high EMI levels often encountered in industrial environments.
The pressure sensing element makes use of thin film technology and is mounted within a high-integrity welded stainless steel body. Extra high mechanical pressure spike protection can be added without increasing the length or size of the thread.
