AutomationDirect has added ProSense pressure switches and transmitters to its growing line of sensor products. They monitor system pressure in hydraulic and pneumatic applications, while vacuum sensors provide an accurate readout of increases and decreases in vacuum systems.

Smaller and easier to install than traditional mechanical pressure switches, and with no moving parts, the pressure and vacuum sensors offer a solid-state solution to mechanical switches. The products detect system pressure and convert it into an analog output signal for reliable pressure indication. Designed for quick installation and easy setup, pressure transmitter output options include 4-20mA or 0 to 10 V, and are available in sensing ranges up to 1,000 psi.

The PTD Series come in robust stainless steel housings. Vacuum-style transmitters offer 20-4mA or 10 to 0 Volt outputs. A ceramic sensing element provides high burst/overpressure protection.
