OMEGA’s PXM5500 Transducer Series provides high performance in demanding industrial and research applications where accuracy, reliability, and price are important. This transducer has a 10-year MTBF rate and is stable to 0.1% of FS over an 18 month period. This translates into less down time, fewer test reruns, more time between calibrations, and high confidence in your pressure data. When recalibration is impossible, relying on the high stability of the PXM5500 Series transducer may be the only cost-effective way to obtain pressure data over the long term. OMEGA’s thin film technology makes this premium in a performance possible. The strain gauges and associated structures are sputter-deposited directly onto the pressure sensing element thus eliminating the need for adhesives. The resulting molecular bond between the sensing element and the strain gauges ensures virtually no shifting, drifting, or creep in the performance of the transducer. The micro-geometry design of the PXM5500 sensing element results very small, low mass sensor that reduces effects of mechanical vibration and shock. The PXM5500 gives you the accuracy, reliability, and stability at competitive prices.
The PXM5500 is also available in standard/Imperial configurations, with MS, NPT or UNF ports, and models from 0-15 to 0-10,000 psi pressure ranges. Please see the PX5500 for complete details, or contact our Pressure department for more information.
