ifm efector Introduces Two-wire, Loop-powered Pressure Transmitter for Sanitary Applications
EXTON, PA - August 14, 2006 - ifm efector inc. announces a new line of two-wire, loop-powered pressure transmitters designed for sanitary applications. The PI Series pressure transmitter features a 4-digit integrated LED display that provides continuous indication of pressure value. The transmitter´s programmable display offers simple pushbutton setup that enables adjustment of the scaleable analog output. The two-wire sensor retrofits existing pressure transmitters and is easy to wire.
The 316 stainless steel unit is rated IP69K and tested to withstand high-pressure cleanings and extreme washdown conditions. With integrated temperature compensation, the transmitter is designed to experience minimal signal drift over a wide temperature range. The transmitter offers an accuracy of <0.2% of full scale and is designed for a variety of application solutions including line pressure, filter monitoring, pump protection and tank level.
ifm´s ceramic cell sensing technology eliminates the need for diaphragms. The integrated ceramic cell sensing element with Teflon sealing offers overload and vacuum resistance under harsh conditions. Built-in temperature thermal decoupling allows the transmitter to withstand CIP cycle temperatures.
The PI transmitter measures approximately 4.5" (119mm) high and is flush-mounted directly in a pipe or tank using industry standard adapters and fittings. The transmitter meets 3A and EHEDG requirements and its materials meet FDA regulation 21 CFR.
PI pressure transmitters are quick disconnect Micro DC units. Models are available to monitor pressure ranges from full vacuum to 363 psig. List price is $495.00 (U.S.) for all models. ifm offers a variety of complementary sanitary fittings, adapters and washdown-resistant cable assemblies.
