Pressure Transducers and Transmitters
TE Connectivity (TE) is a designer and manufacturer of pressure transducers and transmitters with pressures from less than 1 PSI to 100,000 PSI.
TE manufactures pressure transducers using sensor technologies that produce accurate, repeatable results with long-term stability. Transducers can be configured in gage, sealed gage, vacuum, absolute and differential pressures. With seven standard materials, TE pressure transducers are built to withstand the corrosive properties of many liquids and gases as well as harsh external environments. Various configurations also hold certifications to the latest international standards for use in hazardous locations. When standard products do not suffice, TE will work to design a semi-custom or custom pressure transducer to meet and exceed customer expectations.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the difference between a pressure sensor, pressure transducer, and pressure transmitter?
A: Please note that these terms are often interchanged without regard to the meaning below, and that the exact definitions may differ from source to source. These are general definitions. A pressure sensor is typically a millivolt output signal, a transducer has an amplified voltage output, and a transmitter offers a 4-20mA output signal.
Q: What does long term stability mean? How does it affect measurements?
A: Long-term stability is normally associated with the change in zero offset due to aging of component and relaxation of the metallic diaphragm over a period of time. It normally causes the zero reading to go high or low over time. Independent tests carried out have shown this number to be <.25% under the influence of temperature and pressure cycling for 1500hrs.
