The future-proof ceramic pressure sensor Ceracore USC30 from Endress+Hauser combines the advantages of the digital with the analogue world
If you use analogue output signals in your pressure application and still want to take advantage of a digital signal in the future, you often only have the choice between purely digital or purely analogue sensors. The capacitive-ceramic pressure sensor Ceracore USC30 combines both output signals in one sensor. Each signal is available for further processing.
Amongst others, the digital communication path enables the user to adapt many parameters himself. This includes “turn down”, the change of the zero point and the measuring span. The sensor can therefore cover several measuring tasks and in consequence reduces storage costs. Since the adjustments are made at the sensor level, this can essentially simplify the design of the main electronics.
The Ceracore USC30 can be used industry-independent and is perfectly suited for challenging environments with aggressive media. The 99.9% pure ceramic makes it highly resistant to corrosive and abrasive media. The ceramic is long-term stable and virtually free of hysteresis. Together with its vacuum resistance and its—up to 40 times—overload resistance, the USC30 is a suitable dry sensor for high-precision measuring tasks.
The MySensor configurator from Endress+Hauser offers a variety of options to adapt pressure sensors to the requirements of specific applications. Thus, the customized pressure transducers, named UTC30, have exactly those properties which are required by the user.
