Capacitance Pressure Transmitter

Capacitance Pressure Transmitter Overview

SH Series industrial digital Pressure/Differential Pressure Transmitter is a multipurpose digital pressure transducer developed by Silver Automation Instruments., including capacitance pressure sensor /differential pressure transmitter and direct-coupled pressure/fluid level transmitter. Pressure transducer manufacturer makes them on the basis of the mature and dependable sensing technology, combining the advanced single-chip computer technology and sensor digital exchange technology.

16-bit single chip is adopted as industrial pressure transmitter core element, with its powerful function and high-speed calculation capacity ensuring the excellent quality of the pressure transmitter. The whole design frame focuses on pressure transducer dependability, stability and high precision and intelligentization, meeting the growing demand in on-site industrial pressure measurement use. To get this goal, digitalized signal processing technology is used in the software to ensure pressure transducer disturbance capacity and zero point stability. Meanwhile, it has the Zero Stability Capacity (ZSC) and Temperature Supplementing Capacity (TSC). As a China pressure transmitter supplier, we provide cheap pressure transmitter/ differential pressure transmitter but with good quality.

The powerful interface functions guarantees an excellent interactivity with no need of manual operator. It is pressure indicating transmitter, can display 3 physical parameters including pressure, temperature and current, and 0-100% analogue indications. Keystroke operation can finish the basic settings of zero transfer, range setting, damping setting under the circumstance of no standard pressure, greatly convenient for the on-site debugging.

SH series digital Pressure transmitter / Differential Pressure Transmitter has the optional HART module. After the pressure transmitter is added the HART module, the pressure transducer has HART communication capacity, with the conventional operation being controlled with the general manual operator. The special communication equipment and soft- ware provided by our company can operate the marking and temperature supplementation actions.

SH series Digital Pressure transmitter / Differential Pressure Transmitter can be widely used in the sectors such as petroleum, chemical, iron & steel, power supply, light industry and environmental protection, capable of realizing the measurement of various gauge pressures, differential pressures, flows and fluids, adaptable for all kinds of harsh and hazardous environment and corrosive agents.

Working Principle of Capacitance Pressure Transmitter

Working Principle of Capacitance Pressure Transmitter

Pressure or differential pressure will cause some changes in the pressure sensor resistance value and the output value of bridge voltage. Through A/D conversion, pressure sensor will change into the digital signal which is sent to the microprocessor for calculation; then a current control signal will be output to the current control circuit, converted into analogue 4-20mA current output. Meanwhile, the microprocessor is responsible for the interactive and other actions (display and setting).
