Pressure Measurement & Control


PG Manometer range

September 2009 Pressure Measurement & Control

ifm electronic has introduced the PG Manometer range of pressure gauges featuring modern sensor elements and electronics. The PG Manometer includes three units in one: a transducer, a pressure switch and a digital LED display. It has an output capable of switching 250 mA and can automatically detect PNP or NPN. The second output is a scalable analogue current signal.

Modern electronics allow the face of the gauge to show illuminated set and reset points or the pressure as an illuminated ring, as well as a moving needle. The electronics in the setting allow a number of variations to be selected, including hysteresis or window function, damping, display unit and electronic locking of the settings. The mounting position is easily selected as the display can be rotated through 350°.

Versions so far available cover eight different ranges of relative pressure, starting at -1 bar and extending up to +25 bar. The medium can be liquid or gaseous.

The device is suitable for food and pharmaceutical applications as the materials used are appropriate for these industries, as are the hygienic process connections and seals on offer. The only materials in contact with the medium are high-grade stainless steel, ceramic and PTFE.

The PG Manometer offers higher accuracy than a mechanical manometer and has overload and vibration protection and is shock resistant.
