Pressure transducer

American Sensor Technologies has recently unveiled the AST46DS explosion-proof pressure transducer with display. Capable of handling pressures from 1 to 20,000 PSI, the AST46DS transducer comes with zero function capability, voltage or 4-20mA output signals, and all 316L stainless steel sensor materials.

The voltage output signal targets oil and gas well site applications and offshore platforms. The AST46DS can operate as low as 8VDC and has current consumption with voltage outputs as low as 2mA. The transducer housing boasts a layered paint for NEMA 4X environments and salt spray conditions. Using 316L SS, the transducer is compliant to NACE MR0175/ISO 15156.

The AST46DS comes standard with a 316L stainless steel 12.7mm NPT Male process connection. Featuring Krystal Bond Technology, the process connection has a large opening to minimise clogging and the thickest diaphragm in the industry. Additional material options include Alloy 718 and C276. Outputs of 1V to 5V or 4-20mA are standard.

The AST46DS is packaged with various hazardous location approvals including Class I, II and III Groups A, B, C, D, E, F and G areas for explosion-proof and non-incendive applications. Each pressure transducer also features ANSI/ISA 12.27.01 single seal approval.

Pricing starts at $825 each with quantity discounts for as few as 10 pieces.
