Flush-Mounted Pressure Transmitter VRM050D Series Hengesbach

The VRM050D pressure transmitter is suitable for measuring the pressure and filling level in pipes. The highly overload safe capacitative measuring cells and the diaphragm seal makes the VRM050D ideal for use in applications with pressure shocks or cavitations such as in separators. Measuring ranges from -1/0…4bar to -1/0…70bar and special measuring ranges are available. The robust construction of the stainless steel field housing in IP 67 and IP 69K withstand aggressive and residue-free cleaning procedures such as those required in the food industry. All 050D series pressure transmitter are equipped with a micro-processor controlled electronics system and an accuracy of ≤ ± 0.2% FS. They are parametrised with a simple and user-friendly operating concept via 2 keys and a multi-colour status LED. They are highly suited for applications with basic requirements of functionality and exactness.

As a process connection, the VRM050D comes equipped with a PZM modular system and is highly suited for applications placing the highest requirements of hygiene. The modular system PZM is certified according to EHEDG type EL-Aseptic Class I and is impermeable to micro-organisms.. The large range of process connection adapters such as the welded-in lugs for pipes, VARIVENT®, DRD flanges, DIN 11851 conical couplings, DIN 32676 clamps, etc. mean that the pressure transmitters can be used for a wide range of uses.
