Pressure Measurement & Control


Absolute pressure transmitter with different ranges

June 2017 Pressure Measurement & Control

ifm has added absolute pressure sensors to its versatile portfolio in the pressure sensor range. The new PT05 series with robust metal measuring cell, G 1/4 process connection, M12 connector and analog output is available in the common pressure ranges up to 10 bar.

Absolute pressure sensors operate independently of the surrounding air pressure, which is what distinguishes them from sensors working on the relative measurement principle. The measurement is not influenced by weather and altitude-related fluctuations of air pressure. This is often a decisive factor in vacuum applications, which require a fine pressure control. Absolute pressure sensors do not require ventilation; therefore, incorrect measurement due to a blocked exhaust is impossible. In the field of pressure sensors the new units stand out as specialists for ‘specific duties’.
