Simple, Compact Pressure Measurement

May 6, 2009
Billed as a flexible, cost-effective alternative to stand-alone pressure measuring instruments, KM37xx pressure measuring terminals are designed to record differential and absolute pressures.
Pressure measurement is carried out using a “standard” 24mm-wide Bus Terminal. The compact housing and simple connection system are designed to support space-saving and speedy installations. The pressure measuring terminals change the measured pressure into an electrical signal. This 16-bit value is available to the higher level controller and can be transmitted by over a dozen fieldbuses. The pressure measuring terminals have quick release mechanisms for connecting the measuring hoses. In addition to measuring, the Bus Terminals also execute other functions such as temperature compensation and avoidance of long-term drift.Beckhoff Automation
