Forty percent price reduction on AccuSense™ Model ASM



Setra Systems, a global designer and manufacturer of pressure measurement instrumentation for industrial, test and measurement, HVAC/R, semiconductor, energy, environmental, medical, pharmaceutical, and meteorological requirements, has announced a price reduction for its AccuSense™ Model ASM. Models are now available for immediate customer shipment for $499.00 USD, from now until December 31 2012, reflecting a discount of nearly 40 percent off US list prices.

The AccuSense™ Model ASM ensures excellent linearity and stability, with BFSL full-scale accuracy of ±0.04% (±0.05% full-scale via end point method), or ±0.1% of reading. Units are available in ranges from -14.7 PSI to 1000 PSI, with choices of gauge or absolute pressures and 0 to 5 VDC, 0 to 10 VDC, or 4-20 mA outputs, as well as various pressure and electrical connector types, to suit exact user requirements. Overpressure protection of up to 2X proof pressure is standard, with the optional inclusion of a patented high overpressure protection up to 10X proof pressure. This expanded protection capability makes the Model ASM the highest performing pressure transducer of its kind on the market.

The unique design of the Model ASM combines Setra Systems own field-proven, capacitance sensing technology with the latest in electronic circuitry design, including integral digital signal conditioning. The pressure transducers are also temperature compensated, with a total error band (TEB) of less than ±0.25% full scale, minimising thermal errors, and making outputs unaffected by wide environmental temperature shifts. A hydrophobic porous plug at the top of the unit also protects its recessed air vent from environmental contaminants. The transducers also offer high immunity to RFI from wireless devices, for optimal signal output clarity and accuracy.

Sensing elements of the Model ASM are packaged in a fully laser-welded stainless steel housing, measuring just 1.3 inches (33 millimeters) in diameter. This compact size allows for easy installation within space constrained environments, allowing the Model ASM to be used as a drop-in replacement upgrade for legacy sensors of the same footprint, particularly where improved measurement capacity, thermal compensation, tighter total error band and higher accuracy are absolute requirements.

The Model ASM is manufactured in-house at Setra Systems ISO9001 certified facility in Massachusetts, USA, where vertically integrated manufacturing processes allow for full product quality control, from component through to finished product. Units are CE marked and RoHS compliant. Recommended accessories for the AccuSense™ Model ASM, sold separately, are a mating connector with strain relief (600751) or connector assembly, and the SecureCal™ digital calibration accessory. SecureCal™ is designed for direct compatibility with Setra’s Model ASM, and facilitates fast, secure and simple field calibrations, while eliminating field tampering. The simple push-button operation and clear LCD/ LED readouts of the SecureCal™ enable zero-tare and snap-span adjustments.

With its accuracy, Setra Systems AccuSense™ Model ASM is ideal for high-tech industrial, laboratory R&D and test cell requirements, including engine diagnostics, refrigeration testing, engine dynamometer testing, particle and test analysis (porosity testing equipment), or as a performance upgrade within legacy pressure sensing applications.
