P42 with IO-Link rounds off the sensor range for pressure and level measurement
13 Nov 2020
With its extensive sensor range based on different measuring technologies, hygienic specialist Anderson-Negele always offers a measuring instrument for process pressure and level measurement tailored to the application. The P42, a new, temperature-compensated pressure transmitter with the digital communication interface IO-Link, extends the product range and now provides the well-known Anderson-Negele quality and durability for price-sensitive process requirements. The digital interface IO-Link enables bidirectional communication and, thus, status control and preventive maintenance at any time to avoid production downtimes. Plug and Play technology saves time and money for installation and commissioning, and automatic detection, configuration, and parameterization make sensor replacement simpler than ever before.
For many applications, a sensor, which precisely measures the pressure and reliably transmits it to the PLC, is entirely sufficient. The new P42, a compact, temperature-compensated pressure sensor, now offers the right solution for precisely such cases. Despite its elegant appearance, the P42 is designed to meet demanding process requirements: Pressure up to 40 bar, overpressure resistant up to 100 bar, vacuum resistant. A variety of pressure ranges are available to meet specific application requirements, and the customer can choose between absolute and relative measuring cells. Compound measurement is also possible, which means that the relative measuring cell can also measure the vacuum range.
The P42 is also robust when it comes to temperature resistance: up to 125 °C as standard, up to 150 °C / 60 min for CIP/SIP cleaning, and even up to 300 °C permanently with optional cooling spacer extension. The entire sensor, including the diaphragm, is made of stainless steel for excellent cleanability and durability. The P42 is also very variable in terms of process connections: it offers hygienic Tri-Clamp, Varivent, thread connection CLEANadapt G1" or a G1/2" thread.
IO-Link and pressure / level sensor range significantly expanded The new P42 complements the sensor range of the hygienic specialist Anderson-Negele in two aspects. On the one hand, with its digital communication technology it represents a significant expansion of the already extensive sensor range with the interface IO-Link. Now following measuring ranges with IO-Link are now available: Temperature / pressure / level / flow / conductivity / turbidity.
On the other hand, the P42 offers an additional level of performance for pressure and hydrostatic level measurement and extends this application range with new features.
