DMK 456

BD Sensors DMK 456 Pressure Transmitter with Ceramic Sensor for Marine, Shipbuliding & offshore Applications with Nominal Pressure Range from 0 … 40 mbar up to 0…20 bar with an Accuracy of 0.25 % (opt. 0.1 %) FSO

SKU: DMK 456 Category:

The pressure transmitter DMK 456 has been developed for measuring the pressure in systems and the level in tanks and is certificated for shipbuilding and offshore applications. Due robust stainless steel field housing and the possibility to use the device in intrinsic safe areas (temperature class T6) enable to measure the pressure of aggressive gases and fluids under extreme operating conditions. The basis for the DMK 456 is a capacitive ceramic sensor element designed by BD|SENSORS, which offers a high overload resistance and medium compatibility. Preferred areas of use are Monitoring of the pressure during loading and unloading processes, Monitoring of a ship’s position and draught Use in anti-heeling systems, Level measurement in ballast and storage tanks, Monitoring of the internal pressure in liquid gas cargo tanks.
