Digital Electronic Pressure Meters

Bronkhorst® model P-502C Electonic Pressure Transducers (EPTs) are suited for precise measurement of pressure ranges between 2…100 mbar and 1,28…64 bar absolute or between 0,7...35 mbar and 1,28...64 bar gauge. The EPT has a well-proven compact thru-flow design and includes a diaphragm type piezo-resistive pressure sensor, a microprocessor based pc-board with signal and fieldbus conversion and a PID controller for optional pressure control by means of a separately mounted control valve.

EL-PRESS series are equipped with a digital pc-board, offering high accuracy, excellent temperature stability and fast response. The main digital pc-board contains all of the general functions needed for measurement and control. In addition to the standard RS232 output the instruments also offer analog I/O. As an option, an on-board interface can be mounted to provide CANopen®, DeviceNet™, EtherCAT®, PROFIBUS DP, PROFINET, Modbus RTU, ASCII or TCP/IP, EtherNet/IP or FLOW-BUS protocols.

Note: The measuring cell of the pressure sensore is separated from the external pressure by a thin, sensitive stainless steel diaphragm, and the sealed off cavity between diaphragm and cell is filled with oil. Since the standard oil filling is flammable, Bronkhorst advises to take precautions when oxygen or any other explosive fluid is used.
