Low-cost line of pressure and temperature transmitters grows
AutomationDirect expands its offering of ProSense pressure and RTD temperature probe lines.
AutomationDirect has expanded its ProSense line of pressure sensors and temperature transmitters. IP68/IP69K-rated 5,000 psi pressure transmitters are available in 0-10 V and 4-20 mA output models. Offering higher operating and burst pressures, the transmitters are suited for use in applications such as hydraulic systems, paintball changing systems, biotechnology, and more.
New TTD temperature transmitters, for use with RTD probes, are available in three temperature ranges. Equipped with M12 quick-disconnects for fast wiring, the transmitters provide a high accuracy two-wire or three-wire 4-20mA signal output. The IP67 rated transmitters convert low-level RTD temperature probe output signals to high-level analog signals, making them more appropriate for long-distance transmission.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
