Working in the harsh environments that mobile machinery runs in requires tough components that can withstand abuse. That’s why Turck introduced the PT2000 line of pressure transmitters at IFPE 2017. This line features a welded stainless steel measuring cell for increased durability and increased chemical compatibility. The PT2000 offers a solution that has no elastomer seals and all wetted materials are 316L stainless steel. This makes the solution uniquely capable to meet the environmental needs in water pumping, hydraulic, and refrigeration applications.
A gel-filled transmitter housing eliminates problems caused by condensation in applications with a wide range of temperatures, such as pumping groundwater. The compact housing is ideal for applications with space constraints. The PT2000 is also capable of handling pressures up to 1,000 bar as well as process media up to 135 °C.
The PT2000 comes equipped with a standard M12 connector that is available in multiple wiring configurations to allow for easy integration into existing applications. The new pressure transmitter is also available with process connections such as NPT, BSPP and SAE, which are commonly used in North American hydraulic applications.
The PT2000 offers multiple output signals to provide additional options for customers and allowing the offering to adapt to users’ existing control circuitry: 4-20 mA, 0-10 V, ratiometric, 1-6 V, and 0-5 V. Additionally, it carries an IP67 rating, and has an operating temperature range of -40 ° to 135 °C.
