Model A-5 pressure transducers are sensors manufactured out of 17-4 PH Stainless Steel wetted material for ranges up to 2,000 psi and 15-5 PH Stainless Steel wetted material for ranges 2,000 psi and greater that are built for rugged industrial applications that require high accuracy and measurement stability. Pressure ranges span from 0.5 psi to 60000 psi. They utilize complete four-arm 350 ohm strain gage bridges. The Model A-5 is available with a variety of options for extended temperature operation, electrical terminations, wetted materials and high-level outputs including 5 Vdc or 10 Vdc and 4 mA to 20 mA. Most high-level output models have internal shunt calibration circuits as a standard feature to allow easy set-up of the sensor to the data system. An optional internal signature calibration chip provides calibration information for automatic set up with the Model SC four-or-twelve channel digital indicator. The gage Model A-5 is a strain gage based transducer. This design references the primary pressure sensing diaphragm to the atmosphere, and provides a stable zero regardless of the transducer environment.The absolute Model A-5 has an all-welded vacuum reference chamber assuring long-term stability.
