Pressure SensorspSENS - measuring static and dynamic pressures in challenging environments

  • safety certified by TÜV (German MOT)
  • Pressure measurement up to 600 bar

Reliable, compact, versatile

Hirschmann MCS is continuously working to improve its products. Three types of pSENS pressure sensors, each with different interfaces, sizes, and accuracies ensure reliable pressure measurement.

Features

pSENS pressure sensors are ideal for hydraulics in control systems of mobile machines. Pressure sensors of the pSENS series comply with all industry standards for mobile applications in harsh environments.

  • Operational safety under extreme conditions
  • Rugged design for reliable operation in challenging environments
  • Robust stainless steel design
  • Highly resistant to industrial liquids and gases
  • Pressure measurement up to 600 bar
  • Large overload capacity (>200%)
  • Protection rating: IP67
  • Easy installation and startup
  • Interface depending on needs of application (current/voltage/CAN)
  • Reverse battery polarity and short-circuit protection
  • Pressure connection with different threads and suitable hydraulic adapters
  • Customized configurations
  • Long service life

Customized Configuration

Individual needs can be met according to your customized specifications.

Software:

  • Determination of parameters (dynamic, data filter, etc.)
  • Behavior on CAN bus (node ID, transmission rate, etc.)

Hardware:

  • Pressure range
  • Mechanical connection
  • Interface (CAN, 4...20 mA, etc.)

Safety Concept

Both redundant analog versions and PL d graded sensors with CANopen Safety interface comply with the new European machine directive and relevant safety standards.

Redundant analog output requires two analog inputs on the control side plus software to compare the two sensor values

The advantages of using integrated safety products with a standardized CANopen Safety interface

  • Only one input needed on the control
  • Measured value is reverified
  • The PL d (EN 13849) and SIL 2 (EN 61508) safety sensors simplify design and application programming when combined with appropriate safety control
