The PQ pressure sensor is suitable for pneumatic applications and is now available as NPN switching. Its display is slanted for better handling and readability. The switching status is clearly displayed in the 2-color display. Mounting holes and accessories are provided for easy installation. It has 2 programmable switching outputs or 1 diagnostic and switching output. The pressure range is -1…1 bar or -1…10 bar. The new pressure sensor has a piezoresistive measuring element and has a compact housing. This unit can accurately measure pressure in ranges of negative pressure and overpressure in pneumatic applications. It has a silicon measuring cell that is insensitive to liquids and deposits in the system. The silicon measuring cell also ensures a high overload resistance and a } 0.5 % accuracy.
