A Huge Range of Transducers and Sensors for Any Application
A Pressure Transmitter (or Transducer or Pressure Sensor as they are also known) converts pressure into an industry-standard signal and is used to measure the pressure of liquids and gases. The transducers output, which is transmitted to a control system, allows for an accurate reading of measurements that ensures efficient and reliable operating processes of whatever application the Pressure Transmitter is applied to. With the large selection of GTS Pressure Transmitters, you will be sure to find what you need.
Frequently Asked Questions About Pressure Transducers
Q: How do pressure transmitters work?
When pressure is exerted on the transducer, thepressure sensor within it changes shape. This change results in voltage variations. The magnitude of the change indicates the intensity of the pressure, allowing thetransducer to provide an accurate pressure measurement.
Q: How do I choose a pressure transmitter?
Things to consider when contacting us about your transducer needs:
Pressure transmitter range; output requirements; electrical connection; process thread type & size; and accuracy requirements.
Q: What is a pressure sensor?
A pressure sensor is any device that measures pressure and converts it to an electrical signal. It’s an all-encompassing term that includes pressure transducers, transmitters, and switches. All transducers, transmitters, and switches are sensors, but not all sensors are transducers, transmitters, or switches. A common example of a pressure sensor is awater tank level sensor which indicates how much water is left in a container.
Q: What is the difference between a pressure switch and a pressure transmitter?
Pressure transmitters and pressure switches are often confused as similar devices however, they are functionally different. While both are used in pressure measurement applications, pressure transducers provide a continuous output, typically connected to a controller, which monitors and performs actions based upon the pressure within the system. A pressure switch is a simpler device that does not provide a continuous output. Instead, it’s an on/off device functionally similar to a light switch. A pressure switch is set up to open or close a circuit based upon the pressure in a system rising or falling to a preset threshold.
