Model 562

SKU: 562

Pressure Transmitter, Cable Suspended, Pipe Supported

The Delta Controls Model 562 Pressure Transmitter consists of a potted electronic module and modular pressure sensor assembly packaged as an integral unit. This transmitter is useful for pressure measurement of pipelines handling liquids with entrained solids. It does not have recessed cavities and therefore will not collect particles or plug up. The sensor includes an oil-filled 316-L Stainless Steel or platinum diaphragm which isolates the strain gauge bridge from the process liquid or gas. The back of the sensor is usually vented to atmosphere to compensate for barometric pressure changes. The electronics module is potted in a dual system of silicon rubber and epoxy to protect against moisture, corrosion, and vibration.

The 562 is commonly used as a liquid level transmitter in tanks. The pressure at the bottom of a vented tank containing a liquid is linearly proportional to the height and density of the liquid.
