Measurement Specialties has announced the U5300 that the company describes as a cost-effective industrial pressure transducer featuring superior accuracy with a total error band (TEB) of ±0.5 per cent F.S. for demanding commercial and heavy duty applications.

The compact unit claims to offer maximum design flexibility with a variety of pressure ports and electrical configurations available for low to medium volume OEM applications.

According to the company, the U5300 accurately measures liquid or gas pressure in difficult media such as contaminated water, steam and mildly corrosive fluids, in high end, high accuracy applications. These include military, aerospace and automotive test stands as well as calibration equipment, stationary motor fuel control and industrial machinery.


Measurement Specialties' unique UltraStable technology enables the pressure transducer to provide excellent performance and long-term stability over an extended operating temperature range of -40°C to 125°C, the company added.

Each unit's internal circuitry is protected from reverse wiring at input and short circuit at output for added reliability. The U5300 boasts exceptional accuracy of ±0.1 per cent accuracy F.S. BFSL. Standard pressures range from 0-15psi through 0-10,000psi, with intermediate ranges available.

This rugged pressure transducer can withstand shock to 50g for 11ms half sine per MIL-STD-202G as well as vibration of ±20 g according to MIL-STD-810C.

The weatherproof U5300 comes in gage, sealed, absolute or compound configurations, and exceeds current heavy industrial CE requirements including surge protection. The durable device is made of 316L stainless steel, has no O-rings or welds and no organics are exposed.

Typical pricing for a U5300 starts at $271 per unit in quantities of 100. Final pricing and delivery time is dependent upon quantity ordered and sensor configuration.
