The Precision Controls Division of Marsh Bellofram Corporation, (Bellofram PCD) a member of the Bellofram Group of Companies and an ISO9001:2008 certified designer and manufacturer of industrial air pressure regulation instrumentation, recently announced the launch of the Type 5000, a two-wire I/P pressure transmitter for industrial field service requirements.
The Type 5000 pressure transmitter converts a signal pressure input into a 4-20 mA or 10-50 mA output with 0.1% typical accuracy. Its design incorporates a temperature compensated piezoresistive transducer for the accurate gauge pressure measurements of both non-corrosive gases and liquids. The transducer offers dynamic response and is insensitive to mounting orientation and most industrial vibration inputs.
The lightweight housing of the Type 5000 includes a ¼” NPT pressure port and ½” NPT conduit port for field wiring. The arrangement of mounting holes on the transmitter housing also permits direct pipe (2″) mounting for minimum installed cost. Zero and span adjustments are accessible from the Type 5000 field wiring compartment for ease of fine on-site calibration. Connections are accessible via the unit’s top cover removal.
Type 5000 pressure transmitters are available with a variety of industry certifications, including NEMA 4X housing approval for explosion-proof service; FM Class 1, Divisions 1 and 2, Groups B, C & D approvals for explosion-proof service; FM Class II, Divisions 1 and 2, Groups E, F & G approvals for dust ignition-proof service; and FM Class III Divisions 1 and 2 approvals. Other industry specific approvals and certifications may be available upon request.
All Marsh Bellofram products are 100% designed and manufactured in the USA at the company’s manufacturing facility in Newell, WV. Standard models are typically available for shipment within just ten business days, with expedited delivery upon request.
