Digital Sensor Has An Analog Heart

Endress+Hauser’s Ceracore capacitive-ceramic pressure sensor Ceracore USC30 combines both analog and digital output signals in one sensor. Each signal is available for further processing. Amongst others, the digital communication path enables users to adapt many parameters directly. This includes "turn down", the change of the zero point and the measuring span. The sensor can therefore cover several measuring tasks and in consequence reduces storage costs. Since the adjustments are made at the sensor level, this can essentially simplify the design of the main electronics.


The Ceracore USC30 can be used industry-independent and is suited for challenging environments with aggressive media. The 99.9% pure ceramic package makes it highly resistant to corrosive and abrasive media. The ceramic is long-term stable and virtually free of hysteresis. Together with its vacuum resistance and its overload resistance, the USC30 is a viable dry sensor for high-precision measuring tasks.
