Pressure transmitters for mobile equipment

June 2019 Pressure Measurement & Control

In order to provide solutions for use in mobile equipment, Turck has expanded its portfolio of pressure sensors with the introduction of the PT1100/2100 transmitters. This includes mining, forestry, agricultural and building machinery. Compared to conventional machine building, the field of mobile equipment has more demanding requirements, particularly with regard to resistance to overpressure, vibration and shock, as well as increased EMC performance. The new pressure sensors of the PT1100/2100 series are specially optimised for this and therefore offer a robust solution for one of the sensor types most frequently used in mobile equipment.

The transmitters are available with protection to IP67 or IP69K. The compact design meets the requirements for shock and vibration resistance in accordance with the ISO 16750 road vehicle standard. Temperature fluctuations also only have a minimum effect on the measuring accuracy. Besides the M12 plug connectors, the series offers sector-specific electrical connection solutions, such as AMP Superseal 1.5 or Deutsch DT04-3P. The sensors operate in a wide power supply range from 7,5-33 VDC.

With a test level of up to 100 V/m the PT1100/2100 series guarantees optimum EMC performance, thus meeting the requirements of the following mobile equipment standards: ISO 13766 (earthmoving and building construction machinery), DIN EN 13309 (construction machinery), DIN ISO 14982 (forestry and agriculture), ECE R10 (automotive directive), 2004/104/EG (automotive directive).
