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.
The last issue of IEN Europe before the summer break features a Special on Hydraulics & Pneumatics . Read a technical article on the effective Monitoring of Hose Assemblies , or get to know more about the Role of Valves in Industrial Automation . This month’s Cover Story is a case story on reducing the setup times of machinery by using automated actuators. In our Interview , a representative from the company Flir talks about the possibilities of thermography in industrial applications and recent advancements. As usual, we provide you with lots of add-on information, such as videos and data sheets.
Enjoy IEN Europe June/July and have a great summer.
