The 3100 series of thin film metal pressure transducers features a small package size (25mm in length). The stainless steel sensor is welded to a pressure port using a gas laser weld technique that gives a highstrength, fatigue-free joint. The thin film gauges are deposited on to the diaphragm surface using sputtering techniques, which helps to eliminate drift and ensure repeatable performance. Long term drift for the series is 0.1% of full scale per year non-cumulative; this eliminates recalibration. The all-welded construction also eliminates leakages, which can occur on sensors. The transducer covers a pressure range from 10 up to 2200bar. Operating temperatures can reach 135ÂºC. These sensors are available with a choice of 6 electrical connections and 9 pressure ports.
With the April issue, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of IEN Europe. For that occasion we present numerous interesting articles and interviews on technologies that have been groundbreaking over the past decades. An interview with Nexans is on the Evolution of Cables . A technical article by the EMVA on Machine Vision emphasizes the milestones that have been important for the automation industry. A very recent and up-to-date topic, Industry 4.0, is discussed in an Interview with Wibu Systems, a company dedicated to the protection of know-how. IEN Europe April also features a retrospective on Low-voltage Switchgear by Eaton. To celebrate IEN’s 40th anniversary properly, we have a Reader Offer for you, where you can win a high-tech visual IR thermometer. So please celebrate with us and enjoy!
