Transmitter with hazardous area approvals

August 2015 IS & Ex

WIKA’s multi-function UPT-2x is a solution for tasks in pressure, level and volume measurement.

Its sensor, with a measuring range between 0-400 mbar and 0-1000 bar depending on the requirement, operates with an accuracy of up to 0,1% of the measuring span. For applications in the pharmaceutical and food industries, flush-mount versions are available. The electronics are protected by a conductive plastic case, or optionally by a stainless steel case in hygienic design.

The measuring ranges of the UPT-2x are freely scalable and can therefore be adjusted to individual measurement tasks. An intuitive-to-use menu in accordance with the HARTv7 standard and the integrated display make programming easier.

With its handling without the need for tools, its high long-term stability and its universal application possibilities, the UPT-2x is also a cost-effective solution.
