Ashcroft K1 Thin Film Pressure Transducer/Transmitter

Thin Film Pressure Transducer/Transmitter

The Ashcroft® K1 is a proven and versatile pressure transducer/transmitter incorporating polysilicon thin film technology. Modern low-pressure chemical vapor deposition methods provide simple, stable molecular bonds between a proven metal diaphragm and a polysilicon strain gage bridge. There are no epoxies or bonding agents to contribute to signal instability or drift.

The integral metal diaphragm and polysilicon bridge are virtually unaffected by shock, vibration or mounting.

These transmitters are offered in many standard pressure ranges with either current or voltage output signals. Transmitter performance is directly traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology and specifications are conservatively stated. A calibration test certificate is available with each transmitter.

• 0.5% and 1.0% accuracy
• Vac.-20,000 psi pressure range
• FM approved and UL listed
• Superior long-term stability and repeatability
• Stainless steel NEMA 4X enclosure
• Current/voltage output
• Wide range of electrical connections available
