Honeywell Launches New Digital Pressure Sensors with CANopen®

High configurable digital pressure sensors are rugged and accurate

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - August 27, 2013 -


Honeywell Sensing and Control's new Digital Pressure Sensors with CANopen®, Model DPS, are rugged, all-welded, provide consistent performance in harsh environments, and can be used in a wide range of demanding applications like transportation, process control, factory automation, medical equipment systems, and aerospace test and research.

Model DPS sensors are highly configurable, so customers can choose from multiple pressure types, accuracy levels, pressure ranges, pressure connections, and electrical terminations to meet specific application needs. Configurations for digital measurements are fully temperature compensated and calibrated for pressure ranges from 10 psi to 10K psi or 1 bar to 700 bar or 70kPA to 70000 kPa, with accuracy ranges of 0.25% and 0.1%, and operating and storage temperature ranges from -25 °C to 85 °C [-13 °F to 185 °F]. Built tough to withstand harsh environments, the Model DPS with CANopen® protocol communication allows customers to connect to longer cable distances without sacrificing accuracy.

CANopen® protocol communication allows customers to:

*Connect to longer cable distances without sacrificing accuracy

*Reduce the amount of wires that need to be connected to the system, simplifying installation

*Mitigate data corruption

*Simplify tracking each networked pressure sensor by using unique serial numbers

*Configure the update rate between 10 Hz to 250 Hz, easing configurability

Designed for Configurability - Customers can configure the devices to meet their specific application needs due to a wide pressure range, multiple pressure engineering units that eliminate having to make mathematical conversions, and a choice of connectors that simplify use.

Rugged and Durable - All-welded, 300 series stainless steel and Hastelloy® design allows for use in a wide range of harsh environments, while a mechanical shock rating of 100 G/11 ms and IP65 rating allow for use in harsh environments.

Accurate - Customers can select the accuracy level required for their application. Additionally, Honeywell specifies Total Error Band ±2 % FS, the most comprehensive, clear and meaningful measurement that includes nonlinearity, repeatability, hysteresis and temperature error.

Honeywell offers a broad portfolio of sensors which meet industry standard approvals such as ATEX, CSA, and more, and are built tough to provide enhanced reliability, accuracy, and versatility in a wide range of test and measurement applications. Honeywell's test and measurement sensor solutions help customers worldwide in research and development, design, quality testing, manufacturing and system monitoring in many different industries, challenging applications, and rugged environments.
