A variety of OEM applications, from HVACR controls, pumps and compressors to off-road heavy equipment, agricultural equipment and pressurized tank systems, benefit from the compact size and modular design of the rugged U5200. Because it is available in low quantities at a competitive price point, the new transducer is ideal for test and measurement applications, as well.

The U5200 accurately measures either liquid or gas pressure in difficult media such as contaminated water, steam and mildly corrosive fluids. The unit is weatherproof, comes in gage, sealed or absolute configurations, and exceeds current heavy industrial CE requirements, including surge protection.

Measurement Specialties' unique UltraStable technology enables the pressure transducer to provide excellent performance and long-term stability over an extended temperature range of -40 degrees C to +125 degrees C.  Internal circuitry is protected from reverse wiring at input and short circuit at output for added reliability.

The U5200 offers exceptional accuracy of up to +/-0.1% F.S. BFSL in addition to a total error band (TEB) of up to +/-0.75% F.S.  Standard pressures range from 0 psi to 2 psi through 0 psi to 10,000 psi.

Maximum current consumption is 5 mA.  The U5200 withstands shock to 50 g for 11 msec half sine per MIL-STD-202G as well as vibration of +/-20 g according to MIL-STD-801C.

Technical Specifications:

  • Modular design in a rugged housing; cost-effective low volumes
  • Reliable measurement in harsh media
  • Pressure ranges from 0 psi to 2 psi through 0 psi to 10,000 psi
  • Accuracy of up to +/-0.1% F.S. BFSL
  • TEB of up to +/-0.75% F.S.
  • Extended operating temperature of -40 degrees C to +125 degrees C

Typical pricing for a U5200 starts at $60.48 per unit in quantities of 100.  Final pricing and delivery time dependent upon quantity ordered and sensor configuration.
