The Genspec GS4000 series of general-purpose pressure transducers is designed for applications where economical price and reliable pressure measurement is required. Incorporating bonded strain gauge technology and utilizing unique manufacturing techniques results in a low cost, high quality transducer ideal for O.E.M. applications.
Constructed from stainless steel with 17/4 PH stainless steel diaphragm for ranges above 20 bar, and a ceramic diaphragm for lower ranges, the GENSPEC series of transducers are of a robust yet compact design. Applications include the continuous monitoring of oil, gas, water, and other liquids in a wide range of industries.
GENSPEC transducers are compatible with the PM8000 range of panel meters and controllers to produce a simple low cost and accurate pressure measuring and control system.
