Submersible pressure sensors achieve high precision

Paul Boughton
Sensortechnics' new KTE2000CS submersible OEM pressure sensors offer precision hydrostatic low-level measurement from only 50mbar (0.5m water column) full scale. The KTE2000CS series consists of highly accurate capacitive ceramic pressure cells in a rugged stainless steel construction. They feature excellent long-term stability and are compatible with many corrosive and aggressive liquids.

The KTE2000CS transmitters are calibrated and temperature compensated from -20 to +70 degrees C and provide a 4-20mA output signal. A special cable with an integrated vent tube allows a true reference pressure to the sensor element and eliminates errors due to atmospheric pressure changes. The sensor is protected to IP68 and withstands overpressures of up to 10 times the rated pressure.

Because of its excellent media compatibility, Sensortechnics' submersible KTE2000CS transmitters can be used for a wide range of OEM level control applications. Typical examples include industrial level measurement in tanks and liquid containers as well as water level measurement.
