Transducers
Transducers are used to convert one form of energy into another.

There are two primary types of transducers: sensors and actuators. An electronic thermometer, for example, is a sensor that detects heat energy and reports temperature. A transducer is needed to convert the heat energy into an electrical signal that can be displayed on a gauge or meter. Actuators, on the other hand, receive an electrical input signal and perform a physical action. Transduction occurs when the signal is converted into a force.

Transducers are found in most automation, measurement and control applications. They are commonly used to report force, pressure, position or current values. They are also used to convert signals for measurement.

  • 0–100 psi to 0-30,000 psi ranges (0-7 bar to 0-2,200 bar)
  • Broad Choice of Outputs
  • High Proof Pressures
  • RoHS Compliant
For OEMs that need consistent high levels of performance, reliability and stability the 3100 and 3200 Series sputtered thin film units offer unbeatable price performance ratio in a small package size. They feature all-stainless steel wetted parts, a broad selection of electrical and pressure connections, and wide choice of electrical outputs to allow stock configurations suitable for most applications without modification. At the heart of both these series is a sputter element that also provides exceptional temperature specifications. Plus, our manufacturing process for the 3100 and 3200 Series include the latest automated equipment, producing the most consistent and best price to performance sensor on the market today.
Additionally, 3200 Series transmitters feature thicker diaphragms and a pressure restrictor to withstand the rigors of cavitations or extreme pressure spikes, delivering years of reliable and stable performance in pulsating applications.
The compact construction of both these series makes them ideal for installation where space is at a premium - and they are fully RoHS compliant.

1600 Series Image
  • CVD Sensor Stability and High Sensitivity Allows Use of Thicker Diaphragm - 17-4 PH SS Sensor Beam Is Laser Welded for Distortion-Free Construction
  • ASIC Chip Is the Brains behind the Brawn - Programmability Provides Greater Linearity Correction than Common Thermal Compensation Methods
  • RFI/EMI & ESD Protection Circuit Meets and Exceeds Requirements for CE Marking - Protecting Against Noise, Voltage Spikes, and Static Discharge
  • Thicker Diaphragm for Handling Pulsating Pressures – All Stainless Steel Wetted Parts
  • Weldless Stainless Steel Case
The 1200 Series features stability and toughness via its CVD and ASIC design coupled with a thicker diaphragm. The thicker diaphragm enables these sensors to survive most pressure spikes caused by pump ripple, solenoid valves, etc. The 1600 Series extends the packaging options by providing an all welded stainless steel back end for demanding industrial applications. A modular design allows special ordering of fittings, electrical cables, etc. for OEM applications. The ASIC and CVD technology enables Gems to offer almost any output over any pressure range.
DPT230 Series Image
  • NEMA 4/IP65 Rating
  • 3-Valve Manifold Assembly
  • High Accuracy
  • Low Cost
  • Fast Response
  • Gas and Liquid Compatible
  • Low Differential Ranges
  • Low Line Pressure Effect
  • No Liquid Fill Diaphragms
Setra Systems Model 230 is a high output, low differential pressure transducer designed for wet to wet differential pressure measurements of liquids or gases. A fast-response capacitance sensor and signal conditioned electronic circuitry provide a highly accurate, linear analog output proportional to pressure. Both unidirectional and bidirectional pressure ranges are available for applications with line pressure up to 250 psig. A unique isolation system transmits the motion of the differential pressure sensing diaphragm from the high line pressure environment (e.g. corrosive liquids) to the dry (air) enclosure where it moves one of a pair of capacitance plates proportionally to the diaphragm movement. All parts exposed to the pressure media are stainless steel and elastomer seals. The 230 has a NEMA 4/IP65 rated package to withstand environmental effects. This system responds to pressure changes approximately 20 times faster than conventional fluid-filled transducers. The electronic circuit linearizes output vs. pressure and compensates for thermal effects of the sensor. The Model 230 can be supplied with a 3-valve manifold assembly (ordered as Pressure Fitting Code V) to protect against excessive differential overpressure, which may occur during installation, start-up or shut-down. The 230 bleed ports allow for total elimination of air in the line and pressure cavities. The manifold’s rugged, yet compact, construction requires minimum space for installation. If the Model 230 is ordered with the 3-valve manifold, the system is shipped completely assembled and ready for wall or pipe mounting.
