Programmable precision pressure transmitters with ceramic diaphragm sensor

PCM-1 Pressure transmitter

  • Measurement range 1-50 bar absolute and gauge
  • Ceramic diaphragm pressure sensor
  • 4-20 mA, 0-10 VDC and setpoint switch output
  • Programmable settings, range and configuration via S4-Connect™
  • Robust 316 stainless steel flange and enclosure design

ADVANTAGES

  • Chemical and corrosion resistant ceramic diaphragm
  • High accuracy 0.1% of span (BFSL)
  • USB programmer for easy configuration and setup
  • Temperature drift compensated
  • Configurable with plug-and-play USB communicator
  • IP67 enclosure for harsh industrial environments
  • Optional solid-state setpoint relay for process control

The PCM-1 pressure transmitter is designed for gas, vapor and liquid measurement in a variety of industrial applications.  Its modular compact design offers a unique combination of high measurement performance, flexible configuration and a robust stainless steel design. The PCM-1 is user programmable and configurable from PC through the novel S4-Connect™ interface.

 

Sensor technology

The PCM-1 is based on a ceramic aluminum oxide sensor diaphragm that converts the applied pressure to an electric signal. The sensor element is a dry cell diaphragm design with no filling oil contained. It is available either as an absolute sensor that measures relative to an integrated sealed reference vacuum or as a gauge sensor that measures relative to the ambient pressure.

The ceramic sensor surface in combination with the 316 stainless steel flange offers excellent chemical resistance and compatibility with a wide range of aggressive gases, solvents and acids.   

 

APPLICATIONS

  • Sterilization processes SIP and CIP
  • Water treatment and supply
  • Wind turbines
  • HVAC installations
  • Chemical processing
  • Semiconductor processing
  • Gas supply
