Viatran, an ISO9001-certified manufacturer of pressure and level transmitters, has launched its Model 247/347 Series of low-cost pressure transmitters, designed for demanding industrial and OEM environments.
The transmitters’ all-welded design incorporates a bonded foil strain gage on a hardened stainless steel diaphragm, along with fully potted electronics.
This higher mass diaphragm allows the series to withstand short-term overpressure conditions, or pressure spikes, most common to hydraulic testing and control applications.
For lower pressure measurements (0.34 to 13.7 bar), a piezoresistive silicon sensing element is also incorporated.
The series is available in 24 unique full-scale pressure ranges, and with a variety of electrical connections, including a weather resistant industry standard DIN 43650 connector, six-pin Bayonet or direct coupled cable, and a choice of a ¼” NPT or SAE female pressure port.
A standard zero adjustment control makes setup quick and simple, and special ranges and outputs are available upon request.
In addition, many Model 247/347 ranges are available with same day shipping, as part of the company’s RapidShip program.
Typical applications for the Viatran Model 247/347 Series include hydraulic testing and control, off-road equipment and off-highway vehicle transmission and lube oil pressure measurements, automotive brake lines, die casting, plastics injection moulding, pumps and compressors, and general industrial and OEM pressure measurements.
