OMEGA’s PX6000 Series pressure transducers fit easily into your application. These low-cost transducers are small and light, and mounting requires no bulky structures. You select from 3 electrical terminations and 6 pressure fittings. The sensor is a small [about 2.54 cm (0.1')] square silicon chip with 4 diffused strain gages, mounted in the stainless steel case. Laser-trimmed resistors provide temperature compensation and adjust zero balance and span. The 30 mV full range output is compatible with most amplifiers and data acquisition systems.
The PX6000 uses solid state media isolation for improved reliability. Thin films of chemically inert materials are deposited or grown on the chip surface to provide electrical isolation between the sensor and pressure medium. The sensor is less sensitive to vibration and more dependable in high-shock environments. Corrosion resistance is outstanding, and the isolation will remain effective because there is no gel or oil column to deteriorate.
The PX6000 is also available in metric configurations, with G1/4 or G1/8 ports, and models from 0-1 to 0-25 bar pressure ranges. Please see the PXM6000 for complete details, or contact our Pressure department for more information..
