Kistler Instruments has introduced a range of pressure sensors certified for use in ATEX Zone 0, intrinsically safe and Zone 2 non-incendive hazardous areas. Typical applications include R&D, industrial, automotive and aerospace component and system testing. Various electrical and pressure connections are available.

Pressure sensors

The sensors use a patented double-lip sealing method that eliminates the need for an O-ring seal, ensuring accuracy and reliability where extremely high temperature, vibration and shock are likely.

Contained in a high-integrity housing, the piezoresistive sensing element is isolated from the pressure media by a welded 316L stainless steel or Hastelloy diaphragm. Integrated surface-mount electronics provide signal condition and temperature compensation.

Key features and specifications

  • The three ranges consist of absolute (Type 4260A), gauge (Type 4262A) and differential (4264A) pressure sensors all with an accuracy of up to 0.05 per cent FS and long-term stability of 0.1 per cent FS per year.
  • The ATEX-certified piezoresistive pressure sensors have been designed to withstand harsh operating conditions where extremes of temperature, vibration and shock are likely to be present.
  • Every sensor is fully tested over both pressure and temperature ranges to ensure compliance with the appropriate specification.
  • This calibration data, traceable to ISO 17025, is available for all versions.
  • Pressure ranges are from 1–350 barA for the 4260A, 0–35 barG for the 4262A and the 0.1–10 barD for the unidirectional 4264A and ±0.1 to ±1 barD for the bidirectional 4264D.
  • All have EMC, reverse polarity, power supply regulation and short-circuit protection as standard and display good linearity, hysteresis and repeatability characteristics.
