Industrial Pressure Transducer offers ranges up to 43,000 psi.
March 2, 2012 -
Operating from -40 to +125°C, Model M7100 provides 0.25% accuracy and is suited for HVAC/R refrigeration controls, off-road vehicle engine control, compressors, and hydraulics. Pressure cavity is machined from solid piece of 17-4 PH stainless steel so no o-rings or organics are present that could be exposed to pressure media. Featuring 0.5-4.5 Vdc ratio metric output, transducer provides overvoltage protection to 16 Vdc for both positive and reverse polarity.

M7100 Industrial Pressure Transducer
Measurement Specialties, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEAS) has just released its new M7100 pressure transducer for high volume industrial, engine and vehicle markets. Offering a
pressure range from 0 to 150psi up to 43,000psi (3000Bar), this rugged, automotive
grade sensor features an operating temperature from -40°C to +125°C. Applications
include, but are not limited to: HVAC&R refrigeration controls, off-road vehicle engine
control, compressors, hydraulics, energy and water management.
The M7100 pressure cavity is machined from a solid piece of 17-4 PH stainless steel so
no o-rings or organics are present that could be exposed to the pressure media. It has a
0.5 - 4.5Vdc ratio metric output and is shipped with a mating Packard connector or
Sumitomo connector. Ease of installation is insured with a wide selection of optional
pressure port threads. This durable pressure transducer exceeds the latest industrial
CE requirements including surge protection and provides overvoltage protection to
16Vdc for both positive and reverse polarity. It can withstand up to 50g shock, 20g
vibration, offers excellent stability and has an accuracy of 0.25%.
The M7100 is a next generation transducer design that has evolved from many years of
field experience that met or exceeded customer expectations. The M7100 combines
several innovative technologies that have been developed or acquired by Measurement
Specialties since its inception over a quarter century ago. The core pressure sensing
technology, known as Microfused(TM), is used in hundreds of millions of automotive
transducers worldwide. It is now accompanied by new ground-breaking, packaging
technology to improve hydraulic shock protection. The electronics have been
significantly upgraded to ensure signal integrity in electrically noisy applications such as heavy digging equipment or industrial controls with variable drive motors. This was accomplished while minimizing total packaging size and eliminating internal connections to further improve vibration and shock performance.
