Stainless pressure transmitters for use in Zone 1

Bourdon Haenni, the specialist manufacturer of high technology industrial instrumentation, has introduced the X910 and X510 series explosion-proof pressure transmitters for use in Zone 1 hazardous areas. Manufactured entirely from stainless steel, the new IP65 units are designed as a compact and cost-effective alternative to conventional smart pressure transducers for a range of industries including chemicals, petro-chem and pharmaceuticals. The latest electronic design and packaging techniques have resulted in pressure transmitters only half the price of comparable units. The X910 range uses Transbar ceramic pressure cell technology are designed to provide accurate readings at pressures ranging from as low as 0 to 25 mbar up to a maximum of 0 to 400 bar. The fast response time of around 3 msec enables it to track rapid changes in pressure, making it ideal for hazardous or critical applications such as fuel tanks where early and accurate detection of a leak or low level is vital. The X510 uses metallic thin film technology to read pressures from 0 to 60 bar to 0 to1800 bar. Accuracy is typically +/-0.2% and the unit is ideal for use in high-pressure applications such as hydraulic systems. All the transmitters are shock-resistant to IEC 68-2-32 and suitable for use in temperatures from -25 to +100C.
The transmitters conform to the European EMC directive, are CE marked and meet the approvals of the major organisations including EEx, CSA and FM.
