Submersible pressure transducers are extremely affordable and versatile level sensors that calculate level based upon the amount of pressure being exerted on the sensor from the liquid above it. Pressure sensors can be used in a wide range of liquids including water, wastewater and a variety of chemicals. Since they have a low current draw, they are often specified for remote locations and for battery powered applications.
Made of 316L stainless steel, the PT-500 submersible pressure transducers is compatible with many liquids and chemicals. You can select from a variety of housings and cables to ensure your sensor will stand up to its operational environment. With lightning protection built into the sensor, there is no need for a separate surge protector, which protects your equipment and saves you money. Plus, it helps reduces your overall equipment investment, since you will not be replacing sensors due to power surges that may damage the sensors.
A protective cage is used with a pressure sensor to protect it from damage. BinMaster offers a protective cage that is a separate component, making it reusable in the event a sensor needs to be replaced. Over the long term, this gives you more flexibility and saves on your total out-of-pocket investment. BinMaster offers a traditional protective cage that is welded to the sensor body.
The ability to perform the zero adjust simply in the field is a unique attribute, eliminating the need to perform the adjustment with a potentiometer screw. Using a simple magnet supplied with the unit, you simply touch the side of the sensor housing to move the zero point up or down. The PT-500 can be adjusted to zero using the magnet, so it doesn't need to be sent to the factory for calibration. Since there are not any potentiometer screws, there is no chance of leaking which could damage the sensor.
