Impress Sensors unveils a new range of easy-to-install wireless pressure transducers for harsh, inaccessible environments. These transducers are easily paired to either a single or a five-channel wireless receiver, providing a cost-effective pressure measurement solution. The transmitter is available in nominal pressure ranges from 1 to +400 bar gauge. A five-year battery life at 10-second transmission update rate ensures the device can perform reliably in remote or inaccessible installations. Each device is temperature-compensated, calibrated and supplied with a traceable serial number.
The IWPT series of stainless steel wireless pressure transmitters is a replacement for a traditional wired pressure transducer, but also offers the advantages of low cost installation (i.e. without expensive cable runs) in inaccessible, remote and high cost installation environments. Typical applications include environmental monitoring, facilities management, and asset monitoring. IWPT pressure transmitters are easily paired with the IWR series of single- or five-channel wireless receivers, thus offering a plug-and-play solution to pressure measurement applications. The transmitter uses a piezoresistive thick film ceramic sensor mounted within a 316 stainless steel housing that provides excellent media compatibility for the harshest of applications. A swivel adaptor is available that allows the sensor head to be easily aligned to the receiver. A line-of-sight range of up to 750 metres is possible between transmitter and receiver, depending on the wireless receiver used.
The IWR-1 (single channel) and IWR-5 (five-channel) wireless receivers have user-selectable voltage or mA outputs that correspond to the calibrated pressure range of the remote IWPT wireless pressure transmitters, as well as 5A rated changeover contacts for alarm functionality. User channel configuration is also possible by using the IWR-Set program, which ensures minimal user set up time.
