Pressure sensors with capacitive touchpads

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

Hans Turck

The new pressure sensors of the PS+ Series (photo) can be commissioned particularly easily and provide reliable measurements with intuitive operation. Overhead mounting is possible, since sensor heads can be rotated over a range of 340 deg. After the sensor is connected, it automatically registers whether the controller or the bus module requires a current or voltage signal. A compatibility mode is also provided for the integration in IO-Link systems. The operator interface with capacitive touchpads and a color display enables settings to be carried out quickly in plain text, and is protected by a lock mechanism from accidental operation. The hermetically sealed keypad ensures greater resistance to dirt and liquids, so that the sensors meet the requirements of ISO protection to IP6K7K, IP6K7 and IP6K9K standards. The PS+ Series is designed for pressure ranges up to 600 bars and is available with ceramic measuring cells (PS310) or metal measuring cells (PS510). — Hans Turck GmbH & Co.
