Hans TURCK GmbH & Co. KG (USA) introduces new programmable pressure sensors that combine high accuracy and performance with simple programming, resulting in an extremely user-friendly sensor. The PS400 and PS500 TURCK sensors are easily programmed via three controls: two push buttons for scrolling through programming features and one recessed enter key.
The menu is clear and concise to allow parameters such as set points, reset points, output functions, analog ranges, and a range of special options to be programmed with ease. The menu also includes an optional electronic lockout that disables the push buttons from functioning until the lockout is removed. The high accuracy TURCK programmable pressure sensors are specified with a switch point accuracy of +/- 0.5 percent, generally exceeding what is required by the machine engineering sector.
The combination of high accuracy and flexible programming often allows a single sensor to replace several conventional sensors (with varying sensing ranges) resulting in a significant reduction in inventory. These TURCK sensors feature large, bright 4-digit, 7-segment LCD display with a constant indication of pressure in either psi (pounds per square inch), bar, kPa (kilopascals), or MPa (megapascals). This display is tilted at a 45 degree angle, and can be inverted electronically for easy reading in a variety of applications.
The TURCK PS400 and PS500 pressure sensors are encased in compact, 34 mm diameter housing with various threaded connections for simple, versatile installation. The TURCK PS500 series also features a process connection that allows the housing to rotate 360 degrees for optimal viewing prior to locking the sensor in place. The innovative PS400 & PS500 pressure switches were designed to tolerate tough applications. Stainless steel housing with an integrated stainless steel M12 eurofast connector enables fast and reliable installation. The sensors also offer a variety of stainless steel pressure connections including G1/4 and 1/4-18NPT threads. The TURCK sensors are highly resistant to overpressure and burst pressure, yet they also incorporate a patented medium stop system that prevents leakage when these levels are exceeded, which immediately seals the sensor if the pressure cell has been damaged. All of these features were incorporated to create a pressure sensor ideal for use in virtually any application.
TURCK introduces MZB series Zener diode barriers, designed to effectively limit excess energy before it reaches a hazardous area. The MZB barriers provide convenient removable terminals within an extremely efficient and space-saving design-with channels as small as 6.3mm wide-to consume minimal panel space.
Additionally, the MZB series features a bussed power feed and offers both relay and solid-state switch models.
Each channel of the MZB Zener diode barriers is fitted with two stages of pulse-tested Zener diodes and an infallible terminating resistor.
If an electrical fault such as an overvoltage occurs in the non-hazardous area of the barrier, the Zener diodes limit the voltage available to hazardous area circuits, while the series resistance limits the current. Within this circuit is a fuse designed to immediately and safely rupture if the excess energy continuously applied to the barrier exceeds the design criteria for the loop.
TURCK's Q-pak, BIM-UNR and BIM-UNT sensors are now equipped with WeldGuard protection to make them impervious to weld slag and spatter often accompanying MIG and TIG welding operations.
