Pressure sensor line combines display, measuring transducer, pressure switch
Balluff has released a full line of pressure sensors including a stainless steel version for harsh environments.
Balluff’s new pressure sensors combine the advantages of a display, measuring transducer and pressure switch into a single device. Features include: over 130 versions available, IP67 housing rotates 320-deg, bright display with easy programming (no tool required) and extended temperature ranges of -40 C to 125 C.
The IP67 protection is ideal for use in gaseous and liquid media and its high quality, ceramic thick film measuring technology ensures performance and reliability. A large, bright and easily visible four-digit display shows the current system pressure in bar, mbar, PSI or MPa, and features fast and simple sensor configuration using two buttons and an intuitive menu guidance.
- 11 pressure range versions from -1…2 bar up to 0…600 bar (0…8,702 PSI)
- Standard plastic housing or stainless steel versions available
- Two switching points or one switching output + analog output (0 to 10V or 4 or 20mA)
Thanks to their highly compact design, these pressure sensors can be easily located without taking up valuable space. The display’s buttons and electrical connection can be rotated independently of each other by 320° with respect to the flange, which makes accessing the display easy no matter the orientation of the connection. Adapting to different process terminations is easily accomplished using optional adapters in various sizes and styles.
The stainless steel housing models with their extended temperature range (-40º C to 125º C) are especially designed for demanding applications in harsh environments, making them ideal for use with wind power turbines, offshore installations, and HVAC technology.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
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.
