Modular pressure sensors with i2C interface
A range of stainless-steel pressure sensors with digital i2C interface are now available from Impress Sensors & Systems.
Unlike traditional industrial pressure sensors with analogue output signal, the new DCT 532 series provides a digital i2C interface, making it suitable for a range of pressure measurement applications in OEM and machine building applications, including medical devices, pharmaceutical machines, food processing machines and other process engineering equipment.
i2C is a serial data bus technology developed by Philips, which has become the standard for simple communications inside equipment and machinery. This synchronous master-slave interface enables communication between a master and up to 127 slave devices. As well as typical settings such as slave address and data format, units for pressure and other parameters can be set up.
The i2C interface promises integration flexibility, enabling localised bus configuration, which gives the user serial communications with the sensor.
Sam Drury, Sales & Marketing Director at Impress Sensors & Systems comments: “The digital i2C interface simplifies integration with other instrumentation devices, PLCs and data loggers, resulting in faster machine commissioning times and reduced downtime in the event of a machine fault.”
The DCT 532 is a modular design of pressure sensor, allowing the customisation of mechanical and electrical connections to suit specific applications. The sensor also offers fast response and a measuring rate of 500Hz, which means no lag or downtime on the digital bus network.>
