Bestech Australia has introduced new AST47HP series of pressure sensors from AST, USA which satisfies the growing need for pressure sensors with higher pressure ratings.
Available in pressure ratings up to 60,000 PSIG (4,000 Bar), these pressure transducers are ideal for operation in:
- Water jets and water tanks
- Diesel fuel rails
- Test stands
- High-pressure wells
- Injection moulding equipment
- Down hole instrumentation and more.
With an increasing emphasis on vehicle efficiency, diesel fuel rail systems are being redesigned to run at higher pressures.
These pressure transducers are able to meet the new requirements of engine manufacturers. These high pressure sensors are also popular among water jetting applications used in food processing, concrete, tile cutting and metal fabrication.
These pressure sensors incorporate a one-piece stainless steel sensing element, which is free of silicone oil, welds or O-rings.
The absence of these characteristics eliminates the chance of contamination from outside media, critical in food processing applications.
The sensing element offers a thick diaphragm that eliminates long-term drift, which can be common in high pressure and high cycle applications.
Stainless steel housing is welded to the sensing element for optimum protection of the sensor's electronics. Units are rated for over 100 million pressure cycles and have 100V/m of EMI/RFI to protect against electrical noise.
These pressure transducers can operate over a wide temperature range of - 40 to 85ºC and offer a standard accuracy of < +0.25% BFSL.
These pressure sensors are available with outputs of 10mV/V (50mV), 0-5V (3 or 4 wire), 0-10V (3 or 4 wire), 1-5V, 1-6V, 1-10V or 4-20mA (loop) to suit different application requirements.
These pressure transducers are available through Bestech Australia in Australia and New Zealand
