PTX/PDCR 1730 Series - Depth and Level 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/PDCR 1730 Applications
- Ranges from 3.5 mH2O to 600 mH2O
- Accuracy ±0.25%
- Fully welded 17.5 mm 316 stainless construction
- Pulse power operation
- Polyurethane and hydrocarbon resistant cables
- Full range of installation accessories
The PDCR 1730 transducer (mV output) and PTX 1730 transmitter (4 to 20 mA output) are 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.
|Operating Pressure Ranges
||PDCR 1730 (mV)/PTX 1730 (mA) 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 50, 75, 100, 150, 300, 500, 900 psi gauge

- 4 x for 5 psi range
- 2 x for ranges 10 to 900 psi
- 10 x for 5 psi range
- 4 x for ranges up to 900 psi (2000 psi maximum)
||Fluids compatible with 316 stainless steel, polyurethane (cable) and EPDM (nose cone).
PDCR 1730 (mV)
10 V at 1 mA nominal Output is fully ratiometric to supply within 2.5 V to 12 V limits.
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
- 50 mV for 5 psi range
- 100 mV for ranges 10 psi and above
4 to 20 mA proportional for zero to FS pressure
