PR-265 Suction Pressure Transducer


The PR-265 incorporates sophisticated integrated circuits and a new fused silicon monolithic cavity pressure sensor to provide a high level, fully-conditioned, and temperature compensated output. The 316L stainless steel monolithic pressure cavity not only provides media compatibility for most applications, but also offers a leak proof solution for today's environment conscious customers.

Two industry standard output versions are available, 4-20 mA 2-wire loop or a field selectable 0-5 VDC/0-10 VDC.  Wide 12-40 VDC or 12-35 VAC  unregulated supply  voltage  and a broad
0°F-180°F compensated temperature range ensures compatibility to most of the applications.

Rugged NEMA 4 (IP-65) enclosure, gasketed cover, external mounting bracket, fully temperature compensated NIST traceable accuracy and a liberal five year warranty are some of the features which make the PR-265 the industry's most reliable, rugged, and economical pressure sensor.

The PR-265 sensing element is a 100% state silicon strain fused directly onto the 316L stainless steel monolithic pressure cavity. The pressure cavity is machined out of a solid rod and does not incorporate any welds, seams, or bonds. In this way, the sensor not only offers excellent linearity, repeatability, and sensitivity, but also exhibits negligible hysteresis and withstands significant overpressure without zero shift. The monolithic nature of the cavity ensure not only leak proof operation but also enhances the overpressure and burst pressure specifications. The pressure cavity design incorporates novel techniques to isolate the fused silicon sensing element from installation related stress thereby ensuring zero integrity. The 316L stainless steel offers excellent media compatibility to most of the industrial and commercial applications.

The PR-265 incorporates sophisticated integrated circuits to provide a high level, fully conditioned and temperature compensated output.

On VDC output units, two additional field selectable options are available: dual outputs 0-5 or 0-10 VDC, and dual unregulated supply voltages 12-35 VAC or 12-40 VDC. By merely changing a dip switch, one can select the desired output for the specific application. As far as supply voltage is concerned, the unit automatically configures for AC or DC and no field selection is necessary. Another feature is that the output is fully protected from short circuit to ground, or if the supply voltage is applied by mistake to the output. Past experience demonstrates that field related wiring problems do occur. Instead of denying this fact, the protections circuit is designed in to ensure trouble-free start-up. The VDC output unit is also designed to handle low impedance circuits. In fact, the unit can drive up to 1K ohms minimum. In this way, multiple controllers, indicators, or other devices can be paralleled to the output without performance degradation.

The mA output units can function over a wide unregulated supply voltage range: 12-40 VDC without any effect on calibration or performance. The unit has reverse polarity protection built in. As a result, it is next to impossible to damage the unit by mis-wiring. By using sophisticated low drop-out voltage regulators and CMOS integrated circuits, the mA output unit can drive very high output impedance. In fact, with only 12 VDC supply, the unit can drive 400 ohms. At 40 VDC, the unit is capable of handling up to 3000 ohms load. In this way, the output loop can be tied in series to multiple controllers, indicators, and other devices without degrading the performance.

Automated NIST traceable pressure controllers and precision pressure sensors are utilized to calibrate and certify the PR-265. Calibration data on each unit is archived digitally for SPC and QC purposes. All automated calibration systems are networked and data is available on-line to numerous individuals at the same time. In this way, extremely high standards of quality and calibration integrity are maintained. Each unit is individually temperature compensated in an environmental chamber. The temperature compensation data is also digitized and archived for future reference purposes. Compensating each unit individually ensures that published specifications are adhered to.

The PR-265 incorporates a rugged NEMA 4 (IP-65) fully gasketed, dust proof and splash proof enclosure. The enclosure has an external mounting bracket to facilitate field installation. A 1/2 (.875"/22.25mm dia.) knock-out for conduit connection is also provided. A liquid tight cable connector is also supplied if the unit is not being hard wired. Once installed, the enclosure maintains its environmental rating and protects the electronics and the sensing element from condensation, corrosive contaminants and other environmental pollutants. The unit also has additional features for ease of installation including unpluggable terminal block, easily accessible zero and span trimmers, and conveniently located dip switches for field selection.
