Wika pressure sensor withstands difficult environments.

The Wika Tronic A-10 pressure transmitter family is precision engineered and manufactured to fit many industrial and OEM pressure measurement applications. The company says its rugged design provides resistance to vibration, shock, wide temperature variations, RFI, and other extreme environmental conditions that are typical of industrial applications. All-welded stainless steel construction eliminates the need for internal seals.

The A-10 is suited for applications where negative pressures may occur, such as when a system is drained or possibly during a process upset. Such conditions can damage some pressure sensors. Typical applications include, filter monitoring, pump control, vacuum lift technology, and gas analysis.

• Pressure ranges from 0-15 psi up to 0-10,000 psi;
• Non-linearity < +0.5% BFSL standard, <+0.25% available;
• Signal outputs 4-20 mA, 0-10 V, and 0-5 V;
• Electrical connection DIN 175301-803 A and C, M12x1, 6 ft. cable; and
