P8AP Pressure Transducer for Harsh Hydraulic Applications P8AP Pressure Transducer for Harsh Hydraulic Applications | HBM

P8AP Pressure Transducer: Available in Six Nominal (Rated) Pressure Options Ranging up to 500 Bar

The P8AP pressure transducer precisely measures liquid and gas pressures up to 500 bar with an accuracy class of 0.3. It is equipped with HBM’s high-grade strain-gauge technology and ideally suited for dynamic and static measurement tasks, for instance, in hydraulic test benches or hydraulic systems of construction and agricultural machinery. The 500-bar version has been certified in accordance with OIML R60 D0.3 and has thus been approved for use as a diaphragm load cell in legal-for-trade applications. Examples of such applications include weighing the material in an excavator bucket or determining the weight on a forklift fork.

The P8AP reliably withstands overloads of up to 1.75 times its nominal (rated) pressure owing to its robust and corrosion-resistant steel measuring body. It can be permanently used in many different industrial environments due to its IP67 degree of protection. The pressure transducer offers extreme temperature stability. The high-temperature version, which is also available, provides precisely measured data at temperatures of up to +140°C. The P8AP is available with six nominal (rated) measuring ranges with different cable lengths and various pressure connectors. It is the right solution for many industrial pressure measurements.
