PS500-PS300 Pressure Sensors

TURCK 6/8/2018
WHAT IS A PS500 SENSOR?

The PS500 pressure sensor is a robust pressure transmitter with display for use in hydraulic applications where constant alternating pressure levels strain the measuring cells, sealing material and the housing itself. TURCK designed its PS500 series with a ceramic measuring cell that provides overpressure capability, drift performance and a fast reaction time.

WHY CHOOSE A PS500 SENSOR?

 • High accuracy rating of +/-0.5 percent of the full scale.
 • Multiple threaded connections and a unique coupling make the sensors easy to mount. Fittings available in 1/4" NPT male, 1/4" NPT female, 1/4" G male and 1/4" G female.
 • Fully programmable through easy-to-operate push buttons.
 • Patented media stop system prevents over-pressure.
 • Selectable units of measure include PSI, Bar, millibar, inches of water, inches of mercury, millimeters of mercury, feet of water and meters of water.
 • Robust, IP69k-rated housing made of stainless steel provides operational durability in harsh applications.
 • 4-20mA, 2 PNP/NPN or 0-10V outputs.
 • Up to 3 times overpressure.
 • UL approved.

WHERE CAN I USE PS500 SENSORS?

 • Air compressors
 • Hydraulic clamping systems
 • Bad filter detection
 • Vacuum for pick-up and transfer of product
 • Pneumatic systems
 • Hydraulic accumulators
 • Injection molding machines
 • Press machines
 • Automotive welding pressure
 • Machine coolant
 • Pump run dry

TURCK Pressure Sensors

WHAT IS A PS300 SENSOR?

Sensing hydraulic pressure is challenging. Constant alternating pressure levels strain the measuring cells, sealing material and the housing itself. TURCK designed its PS300 series with a ceramic measuring cell that provides over-pressure capability, drift performance and a fast reaction time. The IP69k-rated housing used for this series is made of special steel, and a sealed control and display elements don’t allow moisture into the device.

WHY CHOOSE A PS300 SENSOR?

 • High accuracy rating of +/-0.5 percent of the full scale.
 • Fittings available in 1/4" NPT male, 1/4" NPT female, 1/4" G male and 1/4" G female.
 • Fully programmable through easy-to-operate pull buttons.
 • Selectable units of measure include PSI, Bar, millibar, inches of water, inches of mercury, millimeters of mercury, feet of water and meters of water.
 • Robust, IP69k-rated housing made of stainless steel provides operational durability in harsh applications.
 • 4-20mA, 2 PNP/NPN or 0-10V outputs.
 • Up to 5 times overpressure, up to 40 bar.
