Original Press Release:

PTX 300, Subsea Pressure Transmitters

The PTX 300 Series of pressure transmitters has been developed for the offshore oil and gas industries as a compact, high performance device for reliable and long-term subsea use. It is available with operating ranges up to 15,000 psi and is fully submersible with an ambient pressure rating up to 4000 psi.

Originally designed for aerospace hydraulic systems, the PTX 300 Series utilizes micromachined piezo resistive silicon pressure measurement technology.

The product is packaged to suit the specific requirements of subsea hydraulic control systems. In particular, the high pressure containment rating, hydraulic transient protection and integrity of cable/electrical connections combine with the precision measuring technology to make the PTX 300 Series a leader in this field.

Features include:
- Ranges from 1000 to 15,000 psi sealed gauge or absolute.
- External/ambient pressure up to 4000 psi
- Better than 0.1% accuracy.
- High reliability and excellent long term stability
- All welded construction, high containment
- Accuracy combined non-linearity, hysteresis and repeatability: ±0.1% F.S. B.S.L.
