Pressure sensors measure depth
Published: 13 January 2012 - Heather Ramsden
With the pressure transmitters PSMN and PSSN, Baumer offers compact submersible sensors for hydrostatic depth measurement. They are suitable for many level measurement applications in drinking water supply, wastewater, reservoirs, lakes and rivers, flood protection or pump controls.
Due to the small diameter of only 22mm, the devices are said to be suitable for the use in one inch sounding pipes. The PSMN is available with an accuracy of up to one per cent F.S. The PSSN’s accuracy is one per cent F.S
The submersible sensor PSMN is suitable for level measurement in drinking water supply, hydroelectric power plants or shipbuilding.The PSSN is based on a ceramic thick-film measuring cell. It is suitable for level measurement in waste water applications, pools or flood protection.
