Wherever the process pressure has to be indicated locally and, at the same time, a signal transmission to the central control or remote centre is desired, the model PGT23 intelliGAUGE® (patent, property right: e.g. DE 202007019025) can be used.
Through the combination of a mechanical measuring system and electronic signal processing, the process pressure can be read securely, even if the voltage supply is lost.
The intelliGAUGE model PGT23 fulfils all safety-related requirements of the relevant standards and regulations for the on-site display of the working pressure of pressure vessels. An additional measuring point for mechanical pressure display can thus be saved.
The model PGT23 is based upon a model 23X.30high-quality, stainless steel safety pressure gauge.
The all welded and robust Bourdon tube measuring system produces a pointer rotation proportional to the pressure. An electronic angle encoder, proven in safety-critical automotive applications, determines the position of the pointer shaft – it is a non-contact sensor and therefore completely free from wear and friction. From this, the electrical output signal proportional to the pressure, 4 … 20 mA, is produced.
The electronic WIKA sensor, integrated into the high-quality pressure gauge, combines the advantages of electrical signal transmission with the advantages of a local mechanical display.
The measuring span (electrical output signal) is adjusted automatically along with the mechanical display, i.e. the scale over the full measuring range corresponds to 4 … 20 mA.
