German sensor manufacturer, ifm electronic has released a new pressure transmitter for hygienic applications.
The PM16 series of pressure transmitters is designed to provide a total accuracy of 0.2% and has improved temperature compensation for fast temperature changes such as in CIP & SIP processes, allowing it to be used in food applications. It also features an overload-resistant ceramic capacitive measuring cell for high levels of long-term stability.
The transmitter has a rear hexagonal nut for easy installation in tanks and vessels with double walls and blind fittings. In addition, it has adapters to most common process connections such as Tri Clamp and Varivent and weld bosses allow for flexible fitting with a reduction of article numbers. It is also designed for a zero-point calibration via a teach button or IO-Link interface.
As part of its customer support, ifm provides a download facility for every PM16 sensor enabling a free factory certificate to be downloaded to meet standards and approvals including EHEDG and FDA.
