Versatile new pressure transmitters will be industry’s ‘everyday essentials’
Jul 06 2020 Read 310 Times
A new range of pressure transmitters designed to meet key requirements in most manufacturing and production industries has been launched by ABB. The PxS100 range is suitable for use in the water, wastewater, metals, mining, pulp and paper, cement, and power ancillary sectors.
Rugged, resilient and easy to configure, the PxS100 range will fulfil all routine requirements for pressure measurement. Unique features include QR codes for easy access to online operational instructions and advice; abrasive resistant technology to protect the metallic diaphragm and extend working life; and ABB’s H-shield to protect against monatomic hydrogen and ensure measurement accuracy.
Eugenio Volonterio, Global Product Line Manager for Pressure Products at ABB, said: “The PxS100 range offers abundant features and functionality in a flexible and adaptable design that is easy to configure and quickly available. It sits alongside our more specialised 266 series which can be engineered for specific applications.”
Using ABB’s range of adaptable connectors and flanges, the PxS100 series can be rapidly configured to accommodate hundreds of mountings, spans, and certification-equivalent options. The simple HMI (Human Machine Interface), rotates for visibility from any angle, features ‘through the glass’ configuration capabilities and can be ordered with easily accessible backlight for low light environments.
In compact and robust stainless-steel housing, the PxS100 range offers IP66, IP67, IP68 and IP69K protection for operability in high humidity or where there are high levels of dust concentration. The ingress protection makes it suitable for clean-in-place applications in the food and beverage sector.
In alignment with specifications requested by its reference market, the PxS100 provides base accuracy of 0.25% of span, with the option of improvement to 0.1%. It is available in both Gauge and Absolute sensor variants and offers five different measurement ranges, covering applications from 40 mbar (16in H2O) up to 100 bar (1450 psi) thanks to its 10:1 turndown capability and full rangeability.
