Pressure Sensor (Intrinsically Safe)
The PMP500 Pressure Sensor (Intrinsically Safe) is an intrinsically safe pressure transmitter designed to fit most industrial pressure measurement applications. The PMP500 is compact and contains a rugged construction which makes this instrument suitable for applications including chemical, petrochemical, oil and gas refining, food industry, and mechanical engineering functions. The PMP500 pressure sensor can specifically be used in pressure measurement applications where intrinsically safe ratings are required.
The PMP500 features an all-welded stainless steel measuring cell for improved media compatibility. There are no internal soft sealing materials that may react with the media or deteriorate over time. The compact case is also made of stainless steel and is available with environmental protection rating up to NEMA 6P / IP 68. Multiple intrinsically safe approvals include FM, ATEX, and CSA. These multiple approvals provide for global recognition and acceptance of the intrinsically safe ratings.
Each PMP500 undergoes extensive quality control testing and calibration to achieve an accuracy of = 0.25% full scale. The printed circuit boards use state-of-the-art surface mount technology and are potted in silicone gel for protection against mechanical shock, vibration and moisture. The PMP500 is individually temperature compensated to assure accuracy and long-term stability even when exposed to severe temperature variations. A ½” NPT female conduit connection is standard and a cable compression electrical connection is available as an option.
