Ametek PMT Products Introduces New DCT Industrial Pressure Transducer


Digitally Compensated Technology Available in Compact and Affordable Package

FEASTERVILLE, PA -- -- AMETEK U.S. Gauge/PMT Products has combined nearly 100 years of experience in pressure measurement with the latest digital compensation techniques in a new Model DCT Industrial Pressure Transducer. The result is a compact, extremely accurate and reliable all-purpose industrial pressure transducer that brings a new level of accuracy and reliability to AMETEK's pressure measurement product portfolio.

The Model DCT Pressure Transducer is designed for general industrial and commercial requirements offering excellent performance over a wide range of applications. It is based on proven micro-machined silicon technology that offers high
reliability, long-term stability, and low-cost relative to competing technologies. It combines precision pressure sensing with a rugged stainless steel construction that allows it to operate reliably under the most extreme environmental conditions.

The Model DCT Pressure Transducer is available in a variety of mounting and electrical options and pressure ranges from 6 PSI to as high as 500 PSI. It is fully digitally compensated for the effects of pressure and temperature changes and calibrated to produce industry standard electrical outputs. The Model DCT accepts both unregulated and regulated excitation voltages and provides output signals such as 1-5VDC, 1-6VDC, 4-20mA, or a ratiometric 0.5 to 4.5 VDC.

The Model DCT is easy to install and maintain. No adapters are required, and there is no need for field calibration. It offers superior accuracy, below 0.25% span and below 1% over a wide compensated temperature range. Its design incorporates a stainless steel isolation diaphragm and 316 S/S construction for use with most media types.

AMETEK U.S. Gauge/PMT Products is a unit of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electric motors with annual sales of more than $1 billion.
