To meet the requirements of the machinery standard EN13849-1, Sensor-Technik Wiedemann has developed the pressure transmitter type F01. This pressure transmitter attains Performance Level (PLd) and can therefore be used for safety relevant applications. The requirements of mobile use were of course taken into account and the F01 has an E1 approval. The measuring element is a thin-film pressure sensor which is welded to the pressure port. The transmitter therefore exhibits a high medium compatibility, as the entire medium contact area is made of stainless steel. It is available for pressure ranges from 10 bar to 1000 bar, and features a 4-20mA out-put, as well as a switching output. Optionally a changeover contact is available (then without analogue output). To ensure the flexible application of the F01 the user can choose among different pressure connections. The electrical connection is via a 5-pin M12 connector. Calibration of the trans-mitter over temperature means an overall accuracy of 1% FS in the range of 0... 80 ° C can be achieved. The maximum medium temperature is +150 ° C.
