Pressure sensors for pneumatic applications

November 25th, 2013, Published in Articles: Vector

The compact PQ Series pressure sensors from Ifm Electronic are designed for pneumatic applications such as robotics and material handling applications. They measure the full range of pressure and vacuum typical in these applications. The cube-shaped pneumatic pressure sensor easily retrofits traditional pressure switches at a fraction of the price. Measuring only 32 mm x 30 mm x 42 mm, this sensor can be installed in areas with limited mounting space. Application parameters are established using two pushbuttons. The bright, four-digit display indicates system pressure and can be seen clearly from long distances. The sensor features two programmable switching outputs or one switching and one diagnostic output.
