Flush Diaphragm Pressure Transducer Features NPT Threads, Amplified Output

Stellar Technology Inc, offers the new Model FT29XX amplified pressure transducer. This rugged all-welded stainless steel sensor combines a standard NPTmale process connection with a flush diaphragm.  In addition, the FT29XX pressure transmitter is designed with internal signal conditioning. Customers can select 4-20mAcurrent outputs, numerous voltage outputs, as well as digital outputs including RS232, RS485, and CANbus. The unique design of the isolation diaphragm reduces stress levels normally caused by torquing a tapered thread into the mating fitting. The FT29XX introduces zero dead volume to the fixturing and resists the accumulation of residue that can clog traditional pressure ports. The sensing element is machined from a single piece of steel, making the FT29XX insensitive to shock and vibration. This unit is ideal for metering and dispensing operations, for the application of sealants and paints, or anywhere a flush diaphragm unit is desired.

The FT29XX has an operating temperature range of -65°to 250°F (compensated: -30°to +170°F). Pressure ranges are available from 0-50psi through 0-10,000psig/a. Burst pressure is at least 3X FSO range. This compact sensor weighs about 8 ounces, and delivers a static full scale accuracy of ±0.25% (BFSL). Each unit is shipped with a 19-point calibration record, traceable to NIST. The FT29XX integrates with a standard ‘bayonet’ style electrical connector.  Options include alternative electrical terminations and NPTM pressure fittings.
