Baumer PB series is highly modular

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

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 demanding outdoor applications. Measuring cells exhibit excellent 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.
