Althen Sensors & Controls BV (Netherlands) - Press Release: Althen Sensors expands their pressure sensor portfolio with new hydrogen and digital communication (RS485) pressure transmitters.
Hydrogen pressure sensors:
We extended our pressure sensor portolio with new pressure sensor compatible for hydrogen based environments. The hydrogen pressure sensors are fitted with special titanium alloy measurements cells and wetted parts. The pressure transmitters have succesfully passed all hydrogen compatibility tests.
Formal material testing by an accredited and respected test house confirms the suitability of the sensors for use in hydrogen applications.
The hydrogen sensors will be available in ATEX/IECEx, DNV-GL or combined certifications.
Pressure sensors with a digital interface:
The newest range of digital communication pressure sensors are now available due to high customer demand. The sensors are designed to meet the operational requirements of demanding pressure measurement applications where good quality, fast delivery and low cost are of the highest priority.
The new pressure transmitters all have a RS485 interface for easy communication and compatability with other sensors.
The general purpose sensors are configurable to suit a ton of applications for many different industries, including: oil, gas, water and other process liquids, industrial, medical and aerospace industries.
Benefits of these new transmitters include:
- Faster communication with a digital output
- Up to 32 devices can be connected at the same time
- Lower cabling costs with multiple device set-up
- Information relay distance of up to 1,200 meters
- Excellent noise immunity
