Hybrid pressure gage/transducer
Ashcroft’s new Xmitr product family combines its PowerFlex mechanical pressure gage technology with a transducer in a single enclosure. The new dual-function instrument reads like a standard analog pressure gage while also providing electronic 4-20 mA or voltage output.
For applications where a transducer only is used, the Xmitr is a cost-effective replacement to provide analog local indication for startup, emergencies, and maintenance situations.
Xmitr features include:
1% BFSL includes non-linearity, hysteresis, and non-repeatability;
Three dial diameters: 2, 2.5 and 3.5 in.;
Meets CE heavy industrial;
Ranges: vacuum to 5,000 psi;
Temperature performance of 1.4% per 100 °F error typical; and,
Vibration dampening FlutterGuard exclusive option.
