Turck has expanded its line of pressure sensors to include a specialty sensor for hazardous areas. The PT4300 is a media isolated stainless steel pressure sensor for use in oil and gas, refrigeration, gas compression, test stands and industrial OEM applications.
PT4300 sensors are UL/cUL 1604 (CSA 213) Class I, Div 2, Groups A, B, C and D approved sensors for hazardous area applications. The sensors are constructed without o-rings or welds, allowing pressure ranges up to 10,000 psi with burst pressure up to 20,000 psi. Available outputs include 4-20mA loop powered, 0.5 to 4.5V ratiometric, 1-5 V, 1-6 V and 10mV/V.
PT4300 sensors are manufactured using MEMS (microelectro mechanical systems) technology. With its one piece sensing design, the PT4300 offers many advantages over other sensing technologies, including high life cycle, high overload and burst pressure cycles.
