Modular M5200 Industrial Pressure Transducer

Press release date: Feb 21, 2014

Measurement Specialties, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEAS) has just released to production its new modular M5200 industrial pressure transducer from its Microfused™ line that offers maximum flexibility for different configurations. Constructed of 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 M5200 is CE compliant, weatherproof, compact, and offered in a variety of pressure ports and electrical configurations. It sets a new price performance standard for demanding commercial and heavy industrial applications.

With no o-rings, welds or organics exposed to the pressure media, the M5200 boasts a pressure range of 50 – 15,000psi in gage, sealed and compound gage pressure reference types. Operating at -40°C to +125°C with a pressure accuracy of ±0.25 %F.S. BFSL, this pressure sensor can withstand proof pressure of at least 2X rated while its burst pressure can withstand 5X rated. At a ±1.0% F.S. TEB (Total Error Band) and a current consumption of <5mA (V output), the M5200 also has several useful options which include having a port material of either 17-4PH or 316L, optional stainless steel snubber, and your choice of either adhesive label or laser marking.

This modular industrial 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. Please contact our team of experienced engineers for more custom configurations of this pressure sensor to meet your specific application needs.
