Modular High Accuracy U5200 and U5300 Industrial Pressure Transducers

Press release date: May 02, 2014

Measurement Specialties, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEAS) has just released to production its new modular high accuracy U5200 and U5300 industrial pressure transducers from its UltraStable(tm) line that offers maximum flexibility for different configurations. Constructed with a stainless steel housing, this transducer is suitable for measurement of liquid or gas pressure, even for difficult media such as contaminated water, steam and mildly corrosive fluids. The U5200 and U5300 are CE compliant, weatherproof, compact, and offered with a variety of pressure port and electrical configurations as well as an optional stainless steel snubber to protect against pressure spikes.

With no o-rings, welds or organics exposed to the pressure media, both the U5200 and U5300 are available in gage, sealed gage and absolute pressure reference types. Operating at -40°C to +125°C with a current consumption of <5mA (V output), these transducers can withstand proof pressure of at least 3X rated and burst pressure of 4X rated.
U5200 (High Accuracy) 2 - 10,000psi Up to ±0.1% Accuracy Up to ±0.75% Total Error Band
U5300 (Superior Accuracy) 15 - 10,000psi ±0.1% Accuracy ±0.5% Total Error Band

The U5200 pressure transducer excels at various applications such as: industrial process control and monitoring, advanced HVAC systems, refrigeration systems, automotive test stands, off-road vehicles, pumps and compressors, hydraulic/pneumatic systems, agriculture equipment, and energy generation and management. With superior accuracy, the U5300 pressure transducer is especially made for applications such as military/aerospace test stands, automotive test stands, calibration equipment, stationary motor fuel control and high end industrial machinery. Please contact our team of experienced engineers for more custom configurations of these pressure sensors to meet your specific application requirements.
