Up to 600 bar
L'Essor Français Electronique (EFE) specializes on pressure transducers. The PDS22C sensor supports the CiA 404 CANopen device profile for measurement equipment.
Diverse pressure sensor variants are available for measurement ranges from ±100 mbar to 600 bar. The connection to the CANopen network is done via a 5‑pin M12 connector. The supported CANopen device profile was released by CAN in Automation (CiA), from which the company is a member. If a CANopen device profile is implemented, the data of the device is accessible via the CANopen network in a standardized manner. The same CANopen interface can be used for all device variants independent of the measurement technique and measurement range. A device can also be integrated into CANopen applications from diverse manufacturers.
The sensor with 22 mm in diameter has a resolution of 16‑bit. Software-controlled settings adjustment is done via the CANopen network. It is possible to power the transmitter with 8 VDC to 30 VDC. Maximal power consumption is 500 mW. Working temperature ranges from 0 °C to +60 °C and optionally from -25 °C to +85 °C. The devices already find its applications in railways, instrumentation equipment, navy, shipbuilding, and test benches.
EFE develops and manufactures pressure transducers since 1973. The sensors are available from 0 mbar to 50 mbar up to 0 mbar to 3000 bar. Applications range from accuracy test beds, flight test, to oil exploration etc.
