Greenspan PS1000 Pressure Sensor- Superceded
The Enhanced features and performance of the new PS1000 pressure sensor provides users with an affordable solution to a wide range of water level and pressure monitoring applications. The PS1000 has a standard, 2 wire, loop powered 4-20mA output with an option for 0-2.5Vdc. New features include the ability to re-range the sensor, as well as adjust the fluid density and gravity to suit specific applications.
The PS1000 has a 0.1% FS Accuracy with a standard output of 4-20mA (0-2.5Vdc as an option)
Superceded by PS1000A
o Can be installed in active waters (acidic or salty) that would damage a stainless steel sensor.
o No need for regular desiccant replacement resulting in fewer field visits
o Low cost of ownership and minimal maintenance
o Ease of use and long term reliability
The Sensor is ideal for use in groundwater, surface water and wide range of water monitoring and environmental projects. A durable corrosion resistant body, rugged ceramic capacitance transducer and double O ring sealing ensure suitability for harsh environment applications. The sensor comes fitted with a moulded polyurethane cable as standard. Other cable options are also supported.
• Loop powered - Battery or Solar
• 4-20mA or 0-2.5Vdc outputs
• 0.1% FS accuracy
• Field re-ranging and calibration
• User inputs for fluid density and Local gravity
• Double O-ring Design and moulded cable gland
• Acetyl construction
• ½” diameter ceramic capacitance transducer
• Long-term stability better than 0.2% per annum
• Optional SDI-12 adaptor for serial output
• Threaded fitting for Process connection.
An optional SDI-12 adapter can provide a serial output for external controllers or data loggers.
• Sewer wet well
• Borehole monitoring
• River and dam Level monitoring
• Floor warning Systems
• Tank level monitoring
• Process level and pressure monitoring.
The Sensor can be supplied in various gauge (vented) or absolute (non vented) pressure ranges. Gauge sensors utilise a closed vent system (CVS). This provides barometric pressure venting of the sensor, without the need to continually replace desiccant.
