Measurement Specialties Inc. Now Offers the PT420

Measurement Specialties Inc. now offers the PT420, an absolute linear position sensor with full-scale measurement ranges from 2 inches to 100 inches. The sensor's two output signals, 2-wire 4-20 mA and 3-wire 0-20 mA, offer feedback signal linearly proportional to the position of the sensor's extension cable. The cable-actuated PT420 provides high accuracy and fine resolution without perfect parallel alignment for easy implementation. Multiple cable tension and electrical connection options, combined with the large full stroke ranges, provide designers with a flexible, high accuracy sensor developed for their requirements. The classic string pot design makes the sensor suitable for numerous industrial automation and testing applications. These include accurately measuring position on hydraulic cylinders found in factories and utilities as well as for proper gate position in fresh water or wastewater distribution systems and in valve opening for process-related applications. The PT420 uses a potentiometer that provides an essentially infinite output resolution. Repeatability is +/- 0.05% full stroke with an accuracy of +/- 0.15% full stroke for most ranges. The sensor operates from -40 degrees C to +90 degrees C and withstands 10 g of vibration to 2,000 Hz maximum. A simple dip-switch setting located on the internal signal board enables output signal direction to be reversed at any time. Users then just adjust the zero and span trimpots to ensure signal values match the beginning and end stroke points. Encased in an IP50 NEMA 1 rated anodized aluminum housing, the cable-actuated PT420 is less than 5 inches high when the stainless steel cable is retracted, and weighs less than 2 lbs. Technical specifications: Output signal options: 4 mA to 20 mA (2-wire) or 0 mA to 20 mA (3-wire); Repeatability of +/- 0.05% full stroke; Accuracy to +/- 0.15% full stroke for most ranges; Classic string pot design; Pricing and delivery is dependent upon quantity ordered.

Measurement Specialties Inc. Announces Launch of U5300 Industrial Pressure Transducer

Measurement Specialties Inc. announced that it now offers the U5300, a industrial pressure transducer that features superior accuracy with a total error band (TEB) of +/-0.5% F.S. for demanding commercial and heavy duty applications. The compact unit offers maximum design flexibility with a variety of pressure ports and electrical configurations available for low to medium volume OEM applications. The U5300 accurately measures liquid or gas pressure in difficult media, such as contaminated water, steam and mildly corrosive fluids, in high end, high accuracy applications. These include military, aerospace and automotive test stands as well as calibration equipment, stationary motor fuel control and industrial machinery. Measurement Specialties' unique UltraStable technology enables the pressure transducer to provide excellent performance and long-term stability over an extended operating temperature range of -40 degrees C to +125 degrees C. Each unit's internal circuitry is protected from reverse wiring at input and short circuit at output for added reliability. The U5300 offers exceptional accuracy of +/-0.1% accuracy F.S. BFSL. Standard pressures range from 0 psi to 15 psi through 0 psi to 10,000 psi, with intermediate ranges available. This rugged pressure transducer can withstand shock to 50 g for 11 msec half sine per MIL-STD-202G as well as vibration of +/-20 g according to MIL-STD-810C. The weatherproof U5300 comes in gage, sealed, absolute or compound configurations, and exceeds current heavy industrial CE requirements, including surge protection. The durable device is made of 316L stainless steel, has no O-rings or welds and no organics are exposed.
