On stand 1338 at this year's Mtec 2010 exhibition (Advanced Manufacturing UK, 27-28 April 2010), Impress Sensors & Systems will be showcasing a new range of silicon pressure sensor modules for OEMs, a new differential pressure transmitter for level and flow measurement, as well as a new range of process indicators and panel meters, including a new compact, multi-channel controller with touch-screen display.
New on Impress Sensors' stand this year is the company's DSP range of silicon pressure sensor modules, which have been specifically developed for OEMs to integrate into their own equipment or manifolds. The sensors are also designed to help solve the historical problems often associated with oil-filled pressure sensors. Targeted at OEMs, the DSP range of piezoresistive silicon pressure sensor modules are suitable for general industrial use, environmental engineering, level measurement, process monitoring and laboratory/calibration equipment.
The stainless steel, 18mm diameter pressure sensor modules are available in two main versions: a direct contact type, where the media (air, non-aggressive gases and liquids) is in direct contact with the silicon chip; and a version with media separation via an oil-filled diaphragm.
The DSP series offers a wide range of operating pressures, from 20mbar up to 1000bar. The sensors also provide excellent thermal and long-term stability, high overload protection and a high output signal. OEMs can choose between thermally compensated, non-compensated or fully signal conditioned versions of the sensor with ratiometric output.
Smart differential pressure transmitters
Visitors to the stand will also be able to look at the new XMD smart differential pressure transmitters. These are suitable for level measurement of closed, pressurised tanks, pump and filter control, or for closed pipe flow measurement when used in combination with an orifice plate, Venturi or nozzle. The XMD pressure transmitters can switch the output from a standard linear one to a square-root extraction so flow rate can be output, making the sensor suitable for a wide range of industry sectors, including chemicals, food and dairy, paper and pulp, petrochemicals, energy, power and pharmaceuticals. Pressure range is from 75mbar up to 2bar.
Impress Sensors will also show its complete range of process indicators, panel meters and controllers, including the Simex MultiCon CMC-99, a new compact, multi-channel controller with touch-screen display, which is suitable for the simultaneous measurement and control of a wide variety of process parameters. The CMC-99 offers a variety of input and output combinations to suit every measurement task. Three card slots on the reverse of the unit each comprise 16 I/O pin options, which enables users to select, for example: up to 48 analogue current or voltage inputs; up to 16 relay/SSR outputs; 24 thermocouple inputs; or 12 RTD inputs; or a combination of these. Triggers and relays can also be set up via the controller's 24V DC digital input.
Visitors will also be able to see the SRP 147, a new wall-mountable process indicator/display meter with extra large digital display.
