of ZET 7012-I VER.2 digital gauge pressure (open membrane)

ZET 7012-I VER.2 digital gauge pressure (open membrane) is used for fast and simple overpressure measurements and measured values data transfer in digital format via RS-485 or 4-20 mA interface.

ZET 7012-I VER.2 digital gauge pressure (open membrane) is intended for integration into various technological processes automated control systems. Open membrane type enables sensors operation in viscous, pasty and rapidly polymerizing environments.

Operating principle

of ZET 7012-I VER.2 digital gauge pressure (open membrane)

Digital gauge pressure ZET 7012-I-VER.2 (open membrane) consists of primary transducer and integrated measuring module.

The primary transducer converts the pressure value to analog signal. The measuring unit digitizes the signal from the converter and transmits the pressure value in a digital form via RS-485 interface by means of Modbus protocol  or via data transfer interface “Current loop” (4-20 mA). The membrane of the primary transducer is made of elastic titanium plate. This allows to perform inertia-free dynamic measurements of pressure fluctuations with the duration up to 1 ms. In contrast to metal membranes with glued bridge strain resistors, membranes of this type allow to register pressure change at the level of 0.00005 from the upper scale of the range.

ZET 7012-I VER.2 digital gauge pressure (open membrane) has an integrated cable. Depending on the product version, the pressure meters may have output for 4-20 mA or RS-485 interface connection. The pressure meters may also have  FQ14-7TJ-8 cable plug for connection of RS-485 interface (connection to measuring network is performed via ZET 7002 connector).

The pressure meters should be installed in the corresponding mounting seats.

Installation of pressure meters with an open membrane (i.e., installation into the mounting seat) is conducted with the use of wrench key and corresponding hexagonal connection. it is not allowed to use any other parts of transducer package for installation.

In order to secure hermeticity of the pressure transducer with open membrane, it is necessary to use a radial seal (017-020-19). Use of any other sealing instruments (foam tape, linen fiber, etc.) may lead to damage of the measuring membrane. In this case, installation of the transducer is conducted in the enclosed volume.

Measuring network diagram

of ZET 7012-I VER.2 digital gauge pressure (open membrane)

Using digital pressure meters is especially convenient when establishing distributed measuring networks. Unlike normally used centralized measuring networks, there is no need to use “star” conection, which allows to reduce overall cable length. Since the data is transmitted in digital format, the are less requirements to data transfer channel, besides, one can use relatively inexpensive cables for the measuring network establishing.

In order to connect the measuring network to ZETLAB and ZETVIEW systems, one can use interface converter ZET 7070 (USB ↔ RS-485) or ZET 7076 (Ethernet ↔ RS-485). Using inner power supply module ZET 7070 one can connect up to 4 digital sensors to a single ZET 7070 module (and up to 60 digital sensors if external power supply module is used).

Scheme of measuring network 7XXX-RS-485

ZETLAB software enables connection of up to 1024 sensors to a single PC. The measuring networks can also be connected to any system using Modbus protocol via RS-485 interface.
