Developed by Minco, the sensors can be set to measure gauge or absolute pressures in environments with pressures ranging from 15 to 6000 psi. They produce a 4- to 20-mA analog output and require a supply between 12 and 30 VDC. Accuracy is 0.15% or 0.50% for P8211, while long-term stability for the sensors is 0.15% URL/year.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/maintenance/stainless-steel-pressure-sensors-handle-6000-psi" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/maintenance/stainless-steel-pressure-sensors-handle-6000-psi#comments Maintenance Mon, 16 Mar 2015 16:05:00 +0000 31541 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Cylinder Hones Provide Slick Solutions http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/cylinders-actuators/cylinder-hones-provide-slick-solutions <div class="field-deck"> Damaged, scored cylinders are repaired in the field using flexible cylinder hones. </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Damaged, scored cylinders can be repaired in the field using flexible cylinder hones.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/cylinders-actuators/cylinder-hones-provide-slick-solutions" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/cylinders-actuators/cylinder-hones-provide-slick-solutions#comments Maintenance Cylinders & Actuators Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:43:00 +0000 31411 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Wireless Transmitter Sends Hydraulic Pressure Data to Reading Device http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/maintenance/wireless-transmitter-sends-hydraulic-pressure-data-reading-device <div class="node-body article-body"><p>PT-RF wireless testing system presents a simple way to measure hydraulic pressure or media temperature, using a wireless transmitter to send sensor data to a reading device.
