New Competitive pressure sensor comes with railway certification for increased operating safety

With the new PP20R family of pressure sensors, Baumer is expanding its portfolio to offer an attractively priced solution for demanding applications within the rail industry. The pressure sensor sets itself apart with its high insulation strength and enhanced EMC immunity, while also being the only pressure sensor on the market right now to be labeled in accordance with the GS1 standard.

The PP20R measures relative pressure in pressure ranges from 0–0.25 bar and 0–160 bar. It is available in a variety of models with regard to accuracy, output signal (current 4–20 mA and voltage 0–10 V, 0–5 V and 0–2 V), and electronic and process connections. This makes it a highly flexible solution as well as being extremely robust in combination with its reinforced measuring cell.

It is suitable for use in applications such as pressure measurement in braking systems, cooling systems for traction units, and controlling and regulating the pantograph contact pressure.

The pressure sensor meets the newly established GS1 standard for the rail industry, which makes it possible to exchange component life cycle data on production, maintenance, repair, and reconditioning processes, and thereby contributes to efficient logistics processes for everyone involved in the rail sector.
