Measurement Specialties’ U5100 Series pressure transducers are ideal for demanding commercial and heavy industrial applications where high accuracy is a must. Available in Canada from Durham Instruments, these sensors can be used to measure liquid or gas pressure, even for difficult media such as contaminated water, steam and mildly corrosive fluids.
The U5100 Series is part of Measurement Specialties’ UltraStable line, which is known for its stability over a wide temperature range, and performance that was previously only available in much higher priced sensors. The UltraStable technology features a silicon-based strain gauge isolated by an oil-filled capsule and a stainless steel diaphragm. The high stability rating is provided through MEMS-based technology, and obtains excellent repeatability and minimal hysteresis.
The U5100 offers excellent durability. It exceeds the latest heavy industrial CE requirements for surge protection, and is over-voltage protected in both positive and reverse polarity. With 100 per cent 316L media isolation, the unit covers all but the most corrosive environments. However, custom designs are available to include exotic metals and various ports and output options.
These sensors are geared to the OEM customer who uses medium to high volumes. The standard version is suitable for many applications in temperatures ranging from -40 to 125 degrees C, including advanced HVAC controllers, refrigeration systems, automotive test stands, industrial process control, pumps and compressors, hydraulic/pneumatic systems, agriculture equipment, energy and water management, and more.
