Mt. Olive, NJ, United States, 2009/11/20 - American Sensor Technologies, Inc. has released its AST4000 pressure sensor, transducer and transmitter series to the OEM market with four-pin DT04 Deutsch and M12x1 Eurofast electrical connection options.
Popular in on-road, off-road, hydraulic and agricultural applications; the DT04 Deutsch connector is a rugged connector that is similar to the Packard Metripack 150 series. The M12x1 Eurofast connection has seen growth in factory automation and OEM applications. This connection is compact and threaded to ensure a proper connection between the sensor and cable assembly under shock and vibration.
Because both electrical connection types offer four pin connections, customers can package their pressure sensor, transducer or transmitter with a millivolt, voltage, or 4-20mA output signal.
For customers with multiple pressure sensors per application, the new options offer increased flexibility in system integration. Designing the equipment with different electrical connections for each location ensures proper installation and avoids product failure. Connectors on pressure sensors, in general, help customers install or uninstall the cable and sensor independently.
AST is defining the DT04 Deutsch electrical connection with the letter “Z” and the M12x1 Eurofast connection with the letter “Y.”
The AST4000 features AST’s proprietary one-piece stainless steel sensing element, a fully welded housing; and a variety of pressure ports, outputs and electrical connections. This product fits well into multiple industrial pressure sensing applications requiring accuracy, repeatable measurements, and long-term stability.
Wiring and pin-out information can be downloaded from the website’s Media / Technical Center.
