Submersible pressure transmitters for Class I, Div. 1
Submersible pressure transmitters are optimized for detecting the level of water or other media with similar density in challenging industrial environments including wastewater and irrigation systems and tanks containing liquids such as gas and diesel.
The PT4500 and PT4510 submersible pressure transmitters are
optimized for detecting the level of water or other media with similar density
in challenging industrial environments including wastewater and irrigation
systems and tanks containing liquids such as gas and diesel. The PT4510
submersible pressure transmitter was designed for low-level applications of up
to 400 inches; the PT4500 is available in ranges up to 100 psig.
To deliver accurate level detection, a transmitter is placed
at the bottom of the tank holding the liquid, and the transmitter then converts
the pressure reading to an analog 4-20 mA output signal. The electrical
connection to the transmitter is routed through the top of the tank and
contains power and signal wires. It additionally includes a breathing tube that
is used as a reference port to determine the atmospheric pressure outside of
These IP68-rated, stainless steel pressure transmitters may
be used in industrial applications, as well as hazardous classified areas. The
transmitters carry UL/cUL 913 approval for use in Class I, Division 1, Groups C
and D locations when installed with an approved barrier.

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.
