Digital Pressure Sensors Offer Configurable Features
Honeywell Sensing and Control’s new digital pressure sensors with CANopen Model DPS feature a rugged, all-welded design for consistent performance in harsh environments. The sensors can be used in a wide range of demanding applications, such as transportation, process control, factory automation, medical equipment systems and aerospace test and research.
Model DPS sensors are highly configurable, so customers can choose from multiple pressure types, accuracy levels, pressure ranges, pressure connections and electrical terminations to meet specific application needs. Configurations for digital measurements are fully temperature compensated and calibrated for pressure ranges from 10 psi to 10K psi or 1 bar to 700 bar or 70kPA to 70,000 kPa, with accuracy ranges of 0.25 percent and 0.1 percent.
Its storage temperature ranges from -25 °C to 85 °C [-13 °F to 185 °F]. The CANopen protocol communication allows customers to connect to longer cable distances without sacrificing accuracy, reduce the amount of wires that need to be connected to the system, mitigate data corruption, simplify tracking each networked pressure sensor and configure the update rate between 10 Hz to 250 Hz.
