Marsh Bellofram Precision Controls Division Introduces Two-Wire Industrial Pressure Transmitter with 0.1% Accuracy
2 February 2015
The Precision Controls Division of Marsh Bellofram Corporation, (Bellofram PCD) (www.marshbellofram.com), a member of the Bellofram Group of Companies and an ISO9001:2008 certified leading designer and manufacturer of industrial air pressure regulation instrumentation, today announced the launch of the Type 5000, a rugged two-wire I/P pressure transmitter for industrial field service requirements.
The Type 5000 pressure transmitter converts a signal pressure input into a precise 4-20 mA or 10-50 mA output with 0.1% typical accuracy. Its compact design incorporates a unique temperature compensated piezoresistive transducer for the accurate gauge pressure measurements of both non-corrosive gases and liquids. The transducer offers excellent dynamic response and is virtually insensitive to mounting orientation and most industrial vibration inputs.
The lightweight housing of the Type 5000 includes a ¼” NPT pressure port and ½” NPT conduit port for field wiring. The arrangement of mounting holes on the transmitter housing also permits direct pipe (2″) mounting for minimum installed cost. Zero and span adjustments are accessible from the Type 5000 field wiring compartment for ease of fine on-site calibration. Connections are easily accessible via the unit’s top cover removal.
Type 5000 pressure transmitters are available with a variety of industry certifications, including NEMA 4X housing approval for explosion-proof service; FM Class 1, Divisions 1 and 2, Groups B, C & D approvals for explosion-proof service; FM Class II, Divisions 1 and 2, Groups E, F & G approvals for dust ignition-proof service; and FM Class III Divisions 1 and 2 approvals. Other industry specific approvals and certifications may be available upon request. Please consult the factory for details.
All Marsh Bellofram products are 100% designed and manufactured in the USA at the company’s state-of-the-art global manufacturing facility in Newell, West Virginia. Standard models are typically available for shipment within just ten business days, with expedited delivery upon request.
In addition to industrial field service, the exceptional performance accuracy and rugged design of the Type 5000 allow it to effectively support oil and gas, chemical processing, industrial automation, pharmaceutical processing and power generation requirements.
