PS+ series of rugged programmable pressure sensors are used to measure pneumatic or hydraulic pressure. The sensor shows the measured pressure on an integrated multi-color display while the outputs communicate critical process information to a control system.
The PS+ pressure sensors offer IO-Link capability for added functionality, auto-detect outputs, and a 340-degree rotatable sensor head to ensure simplified installation and commissioning. It also offers a stainless steel housing and measuring cell for maximum ruggedness. A large selection of process connections are available.
After the sensor is connected, it automatically registers whether the controller or the bus module requires a PNP or NPN, current or voltage signal. A compatibility mode is also provided for the integration in IO-Link systems. The operator interface with capacitive touchpads and a multi-color display enables settings to be carried out quickly is protected by a lock mechanism from accidental operation.
The hermetically sealed keypad ensures greater resistance to dirt and liquids, so that the sensors meet the requirements of ISO protection to IP6K6K, IP6K7 and IP6K9K. The PS+ Series is designed for pressure ranges up to 600 bar/8,702 psi relative pressure. It is available with proven ceramic measuring cells (PS310), in addition to metal measuring cells (PS510). The latter devices come with an overpressure resistance of up to seven times the nominal pressure. The sensors can optionally be fitted with peak pressure restrictors.
