P1AP Pressure Sensor Datasheet

Overview

Digital pressure transducer P1AP is a telementry-enabled, battery powered pressure sensor, which is primarily used to measure pressure in distribution pipes of gasses or liquids and sending the measured data over the wireless network into centralised measurement systems such as SCADA.

Wireless communication of the transducer is provided utilising one of the LoRaWAN, Sigfox, Bluetooth or ZigBee (XBee / 805.15.4) radio technology using various RF frequency spectrums.

Application

Pressure manometer P1AP is designed for precision measurement and wireless transmit of overpressure, underpressure or absolute pressure of gasses or liquids inside distribution piping. The main measurement body is made from stainless steel, so any medium can be measured which does not react with stainless steel type DIN 1.4301, also known as AISI 304 also wknown as X5CrNi18 10.

In manometer, the pressure the medium creates presses on the mechanical membrane and changes electrical properties of the output signal, which is then electronically amplified and converted to digital numerical form. This measured information is afterwards transmitted over wirelesss network to the final system for monitoring, metering or controlling purposes.

Mechanical information

The transducer is enclosed in a robust stainless steel enclosure. The back cover is made from UV-stabilized ABS-based plastics.

Technical parameters

Type of measurement absolute pressure, overpressure, underpressure
Maximum measurement range 0 - 60MPa
Temperature of measured medium min. -40°C, max. +125°C
Measurement precision 0,1% of measured range for pressures more or equal to 25kPa
0,25% of measured range for all pressure ranges
this combined precision accounts for non-linearity of measurement, hysteresis and repeatability
Additional measurement error due to ambient temperature less than 0,03 %/10°C in the range of 0 to +60°C
less than 0,03 %/10°C in the range of -20 to +60°C
Long-term precision stability additional error of less than 0,15% of range per year
Recommended calibration frequency once every two years

Packaging

Sensors are approprietly packed individually into padded cartons.

The packaging includes all information required for proper use and servicing of the equipment.

Installation

The manometer is screwed on to the measurement place with appropriate spanner (24mm). The inner thread on the measurement place and manometer must match! Tightness of the connection is ensured by appropriate gasket - not part of the delivery. The dial body of the manometer must not be used for tightening of the manometer to the measured place. Always use spanner and dedicated mounting nut.
