The 3100/3200 Series high-pressure OEM transducers feature a sputtered thin-film sensor to provide high levels of performance and stability for large volume OEM installations. A wide choice of outputs as well as electrical and pressure connections means that the unit is suitable for most applications without modification. In addition, the compact construction of the 3100/3200 Series makes it ideal for installations where space is at a premium.
The Model 3200 features a thicker diaphragm and a restrictor (optional) to handle environments where extreme positive or negative pressure spikes are a concern. Proof pressures on the Model 3200 are 3x full scale on 75 psi up to 10,000 psi pressure ranges.
Principle of Operation for Thin film Strain Gauge Pressure Sensors
Using the well proven Wheatstone Bridge principle, molecular layers are sputtered onto a 17-4 PH stainless steel diaphragm and the circuit is etched to provide excellent resistor definition and uniformity. Sputtered thin film technology allows the design of simple, highly accurate and compact strain gauges deposited onto the back of the sensing diaphragm, which is in direct contact with the media. This method virtually eliminates drift, while offering enhanced sensitivity.
Applications for the Setra 3100 and 3200 pressure transducers:
- Hydraulic Pressure
- HVAC/R Compressors
- Variable Speed Pumps
This product can be used in the following applications:
