The model MTF-1 pressure sensor module is a simple and flexible option for integrating pressure measurement into a wide variety of applications. The pressure value is digitally processed in the module and output as a standardised digital or analogue signal. Thus, the MTF-1 module delivers precise data for applications with pressures of up to 1,000 bar. Adjustment of the output signal is carried out by WIKA at the factory, meaning time and cost expenditure for calibration during integration is eliminated.
The model MTF-1 pressure sensor module is designed for energy-saving operation. The digital I²C signal transmits data extremely efficiently thanks to low basic energy consumption and fast switch-on times. The energy-efficient sleep mode further reduces energy consumption. This makes the module particularly suitable for battery-operated solutions, ensures long cycles between battery changes and thus reduces maintenance costs.
The dry, stainless steel measuring cell is welded to the process connection and can therefore also be used with aggressive media. Even after long periods of use with many load cycles, the dry measuring cell of the model MTF-1 only exhibits a low signal drift – and ensures a permanently reliable data basis.
In order to evaluate the condition of the sensor, in many applications a temperature indication is helpful. Thanks to the digital I²C protocol, parallel to the pressure signal, the model MTF-1 provides a guideline value for the temperature in the sensor module, which can be used for condition monitoring of the instrument. With condition-based and preventive maintenance made possible by this, the service life can be significantly extended and repairs can be planned ahead.
