DescriptionThe OMEGA PX5100 is a compact, industrial, rangeable, pressure transmitter ideal for monitoring pressures in process automation, hydraulic systems, compressors, pumps and in tank level applications where consistent, reliable pressure measurement is essential. The PX5100 has rugged field-proven thin film sensor technology and can monitor a wide variety of wet or dry media. Available in ranges from 0-50 to 0-7500 psig and compound ranges up to -15/50 psig, this versatile transmitter includes min, max to record high and low pressure events and hold feature. A rugged aluminum NEMA 4X (IP65) enclosure measures only 2.65" in diameter and incorporates a backlit LCD display for local reading. The output is a two-wire configurable 4 to 20 mA signal that can be adjusted to re-range the transmitter or “tare” unwanted fluid head preloads. Rangeability for zero and span are from -10% to 110% FS URL (Upper Range Limit). This means a 100 psi transducer can have the zero set between -10 psi to FS 110 psi. For example zero could be set for 30 psi and maximum 90 psi so the output would be 4 mA at 30 psi, midpoint 12 mA would be 60 psi and 20 mA would be 90 psi.
