OMEGA's PX6000 Series pressure
transducers fit easily into many
applications. These low-cost
transducers are small and light, and
mounting requires no bulky structures.
Users can select from 3 electrical
terminations and 6 pressure fittings.
The sensor is a small [about 2.54 mm
(0.1") square] silicon chip, with 4
diffused strain gages mounted in the
stainless steel case. Laser-trimmed
resistors provide temperature
compensation and adjust zero
balance and span. The 4 to 20 mA
output easily interfaces with most
control and data acquisition systems.
The PX6000 uses solid state media
isolation for improved reliability.
Thin films of chemically inert materials are deposited or grown on
the chip surface to provide electrical
isolation between the sensor and
pressure medium. The sensor is
less sensitive to vibration and
more dependable in high-shock
environments because the films
add no significant mass. Corrosion
resistance is outstanding, and the
isolation will remain effective
because there are no gel or oil
columns to deteriorate.
The PX6000 is also available in metric configurations, with G1/4 or G1/8 ports, and models
from 0-1 to 0-25 bar pressure ranges.
Please see the PXM6000 for complete details, or contact our Pressure department for more information..
