Setra Systems Inc.: Wet-to-Wet Differential Pressure Transducer
May 28, 2012
Multiconfigurable, the Multi-Sense®-231RS is a wet-to-wet differential pressure transducer with remote sensors. With availability in conduit and cable versions, the pressure transducer offers four unidirectional and bidirectional switch-selectable pressure ranges. Each unit also features field-selectable output choices of true 4-20 mA, 0 to 5, 1 to 5, and 0 to 10 vdc, as well as push-button zero and remote zero capabilities and a jumper-selectable port swap. Units are both CE marked and RoHS compliant, and feature an all-cast aluminum construction with NEMA 4-rated housings. An optional LCD is also available for greater readability of measured values. The remote sensing capabilities of the unit are designed to significantly reduce customer labor and materials costs, as well as setup time. The sensors are installed directly into the pipe, with electrical connection made between the remote sensors and Model 231RS main housing via cables or conduit, reducing labor costs. Measurement start-up time is also reduced, as purging air out of the lines is no longer applicable or necessary. In addition, immediate cost savings may be realized, as the use of copper piping to connect the traditional pressure transducer to the pipe is no longer necessary.
