Pressure sensor family is modular for flexibility

With its new PB series, Baumer has introduced a new pressure transmitter family based on a modular system which can be adjusted individually to customers' needs. While there are many choices, the company says a common element is high accuracy of up to ±0.1% full scale over a large compensated temperature range of -40 to 85 °C (-40 to 185 °F).

Baumer PB series is reported to be highly modular.

Baumer PB series is reported to be highly modular.

The pressure range is between 100 mbar and 1,600 bar (1.5 to 23,000 psi). The FlexProgrammer 9701 enables the transmitter’s easy configuration.

Four different sensor technologies (capacitive ceramic, silicon piezo, thin film, and ceramic thick film) as well as a wide range of industrial process and electrical connections are available. The PB pressure transmitters offer high accuracy, even in outdoor applications. Measuring cells exhibit long-term stability and performance in terms of linearity and hysteresis.

Baumer says that with a robust stainless steel housing, these sensors are designed to resist shocks, vibrations, and overpressure in harsh environments. Ceramic or fully welded metal measuring cells guarantee a high resistance to corrosive chemicals or abrasive fluids. Options with ATEX or SIL2 approval allow installations in safety-critical and hazardous area applications.
