Pressure Sensors are NSF61 Compliant for Drinking Water System Components


MOORPARK, Calif. - Kavlico, a global business unit of Custom Sensors & Technologies (CST) and an operation of Schneider Electric, has two pressure sensors available for pressure measurements in water delivery systems which meet the NSF/ANSI Standard 61, adopted in October of 1988. This standard addresses crucial aspects of drinking water system components, which ensure that contaminants that may leach or migrate from the product/material (P350/P356 pressure sensors) into drinking water are within acceptable levels in finished waters.

Kavlico pressure sensor models P350 and P356 are in compliance with this standard, making them safe for use by municipalities, consumer appliance manufacturers, and other entities involved with fresh water delivery systems.

Kavlico's P350 Water Level and Pump pressure sensor utilizes a ceramic capacitive sense element and measures pressures from 0-5 through 0-150 PSIA or PSIG. The sensors have outstanding shock and vibration characteristics, are EMI/RFI protected, have a linear amplified output of 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc, are suitable for both dry and wet process media, and are temperature compensated, as well as having reverse polarity and over-voltage protection. The sensors are low power consumption devices that have a built-in Metri-Pack 150 electrical connector arrangement with a 1/4-18 NPT pressure connection.

The P356 is a low differential/gage pressure sensor that also has a ceramic capacitive sense element. The rugged brass housing makes it well-suited for hostile environments. Pressure measurement ranges are from 0.5 to 5 PSIG/PSID. The sensor has a linear amplified output of 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc and operated on a supply voltage of 5 Vdc. As with the P350, this sensor is EMI/RFI protected, has over-voltage, reverse polarity and short circuit protection as well as being able to operate in high shock and vibration environments.
