Pressure Measurement & Control


Type GC35 digital pressure sensor

January 2011 Pressure Measurement & Control

The new Ashcroft Model GC35 is a digital pressure sensor, ideal for monitoring pressures in hydraulic presses, stamping equipment, lifts, water and wastewater pressure control and cooling or lubrication systems where consistent, reliable pressure measurement is essential. Equipped with a 4-20 mA analogue output, 4 digit LED display and programmable switch contacts, the new multifunction GC35 pressure sensor can perform all of the functions of a transducer, digital indicator and a pressure switch, simultaneously or independently.

Available in a variety of gauge pressures including compound ranges and vacuum, this versatile sensor includes a min/max hold feature to record high and low pressure events, and adjustment for controlling display rates. A rugged aluminium IP65/IP67 enclosure allows for a compact footprint and incorporates a highly visible LED display for local indication. Analogue scaling allows the user to configure the unit to any range within the full scale of the sensor range, while integrated switches offer selectable actuation and dead band within the full scale range.

Features

Combined three-in-one digital pressure gauge, switch and transducer

* High overpressure capability.

* Unique high-visibility LED display and switch warning light functions.

* GloBand display with 360° visibility.

* All stainless steel wetted materials.

* Simple pushbutton configurability allows user to adjust switch settings, analogue scaling.

* Numerous standard ranges available.
