Pressure Measurement & Control


Pressure sensors with touchpads

December 2019 Pressure Measurement & Control

Turck has launched its new PS+ series pressure sensors, a modular range that enables access to reliable measuring instruments with intuitive operation. The sensors are easily commissioned and overhead mounting is possible thanks to the 340° rotation range of the sensor head. After the sensor is connected, it automatically registers whether the controller or the bus module requires a PNP or NPN, current or voltage signal. A compatibility mode is also provided for the integration in IO-Link systems. The operator interface with capacitive touchpads and a bicolour display enables settings to be carried out quickly in plain text (in accordance with the Turck or VDMA standard) and is protected from accidental operation by a locking mechanism.

The hermetically sealed keypad ensures greater resistance to dirt and liquids, so that the sensors meet the requirements of ISO protection to IP67K and IP6K9K. The PS+ series is designed for pressure ranges up to 600 bar and is available with proven ceramic measuring cells (PS310) and also metal measuring cells (PS510). The latter devices come with an overpressure resistance of up to seven times the nominal pressure. The sensors can optionally be fitted with peak pressure restrictors.

Turck will be adding temperature and current measuring to its new fluid sensor portfolio over the course of the year: as all the sensors are based on the same platform, they come with a very similar appearance and operating principle.
