Viatran, Wheatfield, N.Y., has announced the global market introduction of its Model 247/347 series of low-cost pressure transmitters, designed for reliable performance within demanding industrial and OEM environments.
Their all-welded design incorporates a bonded foil strain gauge on a hardened stainless steel diaphragm, along with fully potted electronics. This higher mass diaphragm allows the series to withstand the short-term overpressure conditions, or pressure spikes, most common to hydraulic testing and control applications. For lower pressure measurements (3 to 200 psi or 0.34 to 13.7 bar), a piezoresistive silicon sensing element is also incorporated.
The series is available in 24 unique full-scale pressure ranges, and with a variety of electrical connections. Electrical connections include a weather resistant industry standard DIN 43650 connector, 6-pin Bayonet or direct-coupled cable, and a choice of a ¼-in. NPT or SAE female pressure port. A standard zero adjustment control makes setup quick and simple. Special ranges and outputs are available upon request. In addition, many Model 247/347 ranges are available with same day shipping, as part of the company’s RapidShip program.
Typical applications for the Viatran Model 247/347 Series include hydraulic testing and control, off-road equipment and off-highway vehicle transmission and lube oil pressure measurements, automotive brake lines, die casting, plastic injection molding, pumps and compressors, and general industrial and OEM pressure measurements.
