High-precision, wet/wet differential pressure transmitter - Model PN2L

Differential pressure transmitter PN2L

Product description

Featuring a state-of-the-art digital compensation and two pressure ports for high and low pressures, the PN2L model has been designed to measure low differential pressures under extreme static pressure (up to 600 bar). This wet/wet differential pressure transmitter utilizes the latest leading-edge technologies to provide high accuracy and high precision pressure measurement and offers unequaled performance, excellent stability and proven reliability.

The sensor integrates a single solid-state, piezoresistive MEMS silicon die which acts as the sensitive element and converts pressure into an electrical signal. Using advanced techniques of MEMS fabrication (like wet etching, anisotropic etching), a thin diaphragm is crafted inside the silicon die. The thickness of the diaphragm is individually adapted to each pressure range so as to get the highest possible sensitivity without breaking under full pressure load.

The sensor signal is digitized, compensated and processed by a powerful, low power 32-bit microcontroller. It is then converted back to an amplified analog signal. The digital electronics ensures precise calibration of all critical parameters and achieves very high precision, thermal stability and compensation of all repeatable errors. Each unit is fully tested, compensated and calibrated for pressure and temperature. Each transmitter is shipped with a traceable calibration card.

The electronic circuit is packaged in a hermetically-sealed, all-welded 316L stainless steel housing enabling the PN2L to be immersed in water or pressure washed without internal leakage. This design makes the PN2L ideal for pressure measurements that can involve wet, corrosive or sterile media in the most severe environments.
