Pressure Sensors Accomodate Varying Pressure Ranges

Turck recently announced the addition of PK pressure sensors to its growing line of pressure instruments. PK pressure sensors were designed to provide an economical means for switch point detection in air and inert gas applications. The compact sensors are IP 65 rated and can be used in pneumatic and robotic applications.

PK sensors are available in two body styles, the pico and the nano, to support a broad range of mounting options. The sensor is programmed through easy-to-use push buttons, and the menu may be inverted for additional programming flexibility.

PK sensors provide the two pressure ranges most commonly found in pneumatic applications: -29.5 to 0 inHg and 0 to 145 psi, with 3 percent accuracy. Two PNP switch points and an integrated M8 connector further the sensors’ applicability in many industries.
