DescriptionOMEGA'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.
