RS PRO Pressure Sensors

Introducing RS PRO pressure sensors, also known as pressure transmitters. These devices change pressure forces into electrical signals. They are used to measure the pressure of the specific quantity like air, water and gas by changing the pressure into electrical energy. The probe uses a piezo-resistive ceramic sensor, giving excellent media compatibility within a stainless steel housing.

Why would choose these types of pressure sensors?

Pressure sensors with 0-5 V or 4-20mA outputs are transmitters least affected with electrical noise and resistance in signal wires, perfect technology for long distance transmission.

What is the difference between a pressure transmitter and a pressure transducer?

Pressure transmitters regularly get confused with a pressure transducer. A pressure sensor with a current loop output such as 4-20 mA is technical a pressure transmitter. If a pressure sensor provides an mV voltage output or a non-amplified output then it’s a pressure transducer.

Characteristics

The electronics incorporate a microprocessor-based amplifier, requiring no adjustments and giving stable electronics, especially for industrial applications. The device is temperature compensated, calibrated and supplied with a traceable serial number and calibration data.
