PTX 1730 Series - Depth and Level Pressure Sensors

PTX 1730 Series - Pressure Sensors

 

The 1730/1740 series has been developed as a general purpose, hydrostatic liquid level sensor, designed to work in low powered, arduous applications, including surface water, ground water and tank level. It is the latest generation of submersible products manufactured over the past 30 years and features high performance, micro-machined silicon technology, packaged in a fully welded 316 stainless steel assembly.

Level pressure sensor application specific features include a Kevlar strain relieved vented cable, internal condensation protection and an IP68 injection moulded cable assembly, which guarantees sensor operation over an extended lifetime.

PTX 1730 transmitter (4 to 20 mA output) is the latest generation of fully submersible, 316 stainless steel, high performance sensors for measurement of hydrostatic liquid levels.

Application specific features include a Kevlar® strain relieved vented cable, internal condensation protection and an IP68 injection moulded cable assembly, which ensures sensor operation over an extended lifetime.

Pressure Measurement

Operating Pressure Ranges PTX 1730 (mA) 10, 15, 20, 30, 50, 75, 100, 150, 300, 500, 900 psi gauge
Overpressure The operating FS pressure range can be exceeded by the following multiples with negligible effect on calibration.
  •  2 x for all ranges
Pressure Containment
  •  4 x for ranges up to 900 psi (2000 psi maximum)
Media Compatibility Fluids compatible with 316 stainless steel, polyurethane (cable) and Kynar (nose cone).
Excitation Voltage

PTX1730 (mA)
9 to 30 VDC across terminals

For pulse power operation refer to technical note.

The minimum supply voltage (VMIN) which must appear across the pressure transmitter terminals is 9 V and is given by the following equation: VMIN = VSUP - (0.02 x RLOOP) Where VSUP is supply voltage in Volts, RLOOP is total loop resistance in Ohms

Output Signal

PTX 1730
4 to 20 mA proportional for zero to FS pressure

Common Mode Voltage - PDCR 1730 Nominally 50% of excitation voltage
