Turck’s pressure transmitters for demanding applications

December 2017 Pressure Measurement & Control

Turck has introduced the PT2000 line of pressure transmitters, which offer a welded stainless steel measuring cell for increased durability and chemical compatibility. The PT2000 offers a solution that has no elastomer seals and all wetted materials are 316L stainless steel. This makes the solution uniquely capable to meet the environmental needs in water pumping, hydraulic and refrigeration applications. The transmitter housing is gel filled, eliminating problems caused by condensation in applications with a wide range of temperatures, such as pumping ground water. Additionally, the housing is more compact than existing solutions, making it suitable for installation in applications with space constraints. The PT2000 is capable of handling pressures up to 1000 bar and process media temperatures up to 135°C.

Units come equipped with a standard M12 connector, available in multiple wiring configurations to allow for easy integration into existing applications, and also with process connections such as NPT, BSPP and SAE, which are commonly used in North American hydraulic systems.

“The PT2000 line gives customers a robust, stainless steel solution in a compact, economical package,” said Rich Tallant, Turck’s product manager for sensors. “Furthermore, with a variety of connection options, it provides a valuable solution for a wide range of applications.”

The PT2000 offers multiple output signals to provide additional options for customers and allowing the offering to adapt to users’ existing control circuitry: 4-20 mA, 0-10 V, ratiometric, 1-6 V, and 0-5 V options are all available. Additionally, it carries an IP67 rating, and has an operating temperature range of -40 to 135°C.
