Description

The PR3202 low differential pressure sensor is designed for the measurement of dry, non-corrosive gases across range of general purpose and industrial applications such as HVAC, clean room monitoring and flow measurement applications.

The PR3202 low differential pressure transmitter utilises a highly stable sensing element which allows it’s 4-20mA output to be factory-scaled over measuring ranges as small as 0-0.25mbar (0-25 Pascals). They are also fully temperature compensated for unrivalled stability at very low pressure.

In addition to differential pressure, the PR3202 can also measure gauge and vacuum / suction pressure, it can also operate bi-directionally giving the ability to measure compound differential pressure ranges that range from vacuum to positive pressure.

The PR3202 low range differential pressure sensor’s process connection is made via hose fittings which cater for common mode / line pressures of up to 10bar.
