ABB has launched a new range of pressure transmitters designed to meet key requirements in most manufacturing and production industries, including pulp and paper.

The PxS100 range will fulfil all routine requirements for pressure measurement. Features include QR codes for access to online operational instructions and advice, abrasive resistant technology to protect the metallic diaphragm and extend working life, and ABB’s H-shield to protect against monatomic hydrogen and ensure measurement accuracy.

Using ABB’s range of adaptable connectors and flanges, the PxS100 series can be configured to accommodate hundreds of mountings, spans and certification-equivalent options.

The HMI (human-machine interface) rotates for visibility from any angle, features “through the glass” configuration capabilities and can be ordered with accessible backlight for low-light environments.

In compact stainless-steel housing, the PxS100 range offers IP66, IP67, IP68 and IP69K protection for operability in high humidity or where there are high levels of dust concentration. The ingress protection makes it suitable for clean-in-place applications in the food and beverage sector.

The PxS100 provides base accuracy of 0.25 per cent of span, with the option of improvement to 0.1 per cent. It is available in both gauge and absolute sensor variants and offers five different measurement ranges, covering applications from 40 mbar (16in H2O) up to 100 bar (1450 psi) thanks to its 10:1 turndown capability and full rangeability.
