Smart and exchangeable pressure sensor

Paul Boughton

Leading marine instrumentation manufacturer, Valeport, has introduced a new pressure sensor, the ultraP.

Re-designed from the connector up, the ultraP offers a smart and exchangeable pressure sensor, which is ultra fast and compact.

Suited to system integrators and OEM applications, the new ultraP has been designed to allow users to maintain the best possible accuracy with the facility to select the depth rating that best suits the user’s operational depth, with options from 10 through to 600bar.

The pressure sensor, housed within the ultraP’s rugged titanium casing, is a temperature piezo-resistive sensor, which delivers the performance previously only available from a resonant quartz sensor.

It also brings the added advantages of long-term stability, allowing longer intervals between calibration and the ultraP’s smaller, more robust construction ensures complex and vulnerable arrangements of diaphragms and oil filled capillaries and reservoirs are therefore no longer necessary.

The ultraP can be re-calibrated by customers using a Class A deadweight tester.
