Hygienic Pressure Sensor Raises Performance Bars

Claiming to set new standards, Baumer’s PP20H hygienic pressure sensor features a condensate-proof silicon measuring cell within an IP69K rated stainless steel housing to ensure optimum operating safety in demanding hygienic applications. Viable for a variety of applications, the sensor offers a scaled pressure range from -1 to 40 bar and a wide choice of process connections. It is available with a 4 mA to 20 mA signal and IO-Link and complies with the strict hygiene requirements in the food and pharmaceutical industries where CIP and SIP capability (clean-in-place and steam-in-place) are essential.

 

The hermitically-sealed silicon measuring element is completely insensitive to moisture and condensate, even in applications where there are extreme temperature fluctuations and damp environments.  Operational temperature range is from -20ºC to +125ºC without the need for a cooling line, so less space is needed for installation. Also, a wide variety of applications can be covered by just one sensor model ensuring cost and space savings. Several sensors can be simultaneously configured via IO-Link which simplifies switching point adjustment for different process stages at start-up, or batch changes saving time. Diagnostic data can be instantly called up and evaluated.
