These small pressure sensors are available with a wide selection of output signal formats.
The compact 3100 pressure sensor series from Setra Systems , provides a low cost solution for OEM applications, such as hydraulic controls, HVAC systems, engine controls, off-highway equipment, compressors, and pumps.

Less than 1 in. in diameter, Setra says it is ideal for installations where space is at a premium, and its all stainless steel construction resists corrosive media typically found in industrial environments. The 3100 series uses high-accuracy thin film technology combined with a special transmitter to offer accuracy of

Pressure ranges are available from 100 to 30,000 psi (7 to 2,070 bar), with a wide variety of analog outputs. Inlets include NPT, UNF, BSP, and metric threads, with custom configurations available. All of Setra’s pressure transducers are CE compliant.
