Pressure and temperature measurement combined in one module
Test & Measurement
Variohm EuroSensor has launched a compact new sensor for the simultaneous
measurement of gas and liquid pressure up to 25 bar and temperatures up to
150C. Space-saving and cost-effective, two important measurements can now be
monitored using a single port.
With no silicon oil, the new EPTTE3100 combined sensor features a well
proven thin-film strain gauge pressure measuring cell for safe and reliable
operation whilst the PT1000 platinum resistance element provides linear
temperature measurement with proven reliability and long term stability.
The new sensor is fully sealed to IP67 and is housed in a high strength
stainless steel for maximum durability. With a 22 mm diameter and overall
length around 60mm, the sensor's compact dimensions are complemented with a
choice of industry standard M10 or 1/8" NPT pressure port interfaces and a
600mm sheathed electrical connection cable for ease of installation. Nine
pressure measuring ranges between 0.6 and 25 bar are available with a
ratiometric output signal of 0.5V - 4.5V, while temperature measurement is
from -50C to +150C with Class B accuracy.
With an operating temperature range of -20C to +125C, very low electrical
noise emissions and high resilience to shock and vibration, the sensor will
suit demanding applications throughout motorsports as well as medical and
industrial equipment such as autoclaves and steam sterilizers.
