of ZET 7012-I VER.3 digital gauge pressure

Digital gauge pressure ZET 7012-I VER.3 (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 VER3 digital gauge pressure meter 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 principles

of ZET 7012-I VER3 digital gauge pressure

ZET 7012-I VER.3 digital gauge pressure meter 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 a flexible titanium plate. This allows to perform inertia-free dynamic measurements of the pressure fluctuations with duration up to 1 ms. In contrast to metal membranes with glued bridge strain resistors, membranes of this type enable registering pressure change at the level of 0.00005 from the upper range limit.

The pressure meters are attached to the controlled object while the interface modules enabling data transfer are placed inside of electrical cabinets.

ZETLAB electrical cabinet is more compact than similar available analog products. Among ZETSENSOR modules advantages one should mention easy installation and de-installation of modules as well as power and signal transfer indication (which, in its turn, facilitates in-place diagnostics of the measuring system).

Pressure gauges with open membranes should be installed in the corresponding mounting seats.

Mounting of the digital pressure transducer with open membrane (installation into the mounting seat) is conducted with the use of wrench key and the corresponding hexagonal connection. It is forbidden to use any other parts of the digital transducer package for installation purposes.

In order to secure hermeticity of the pressure gauge with open membrane, it is necessary to use radial sealing (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 enclosed volume.

Gauge pressure meter: points designation

for connection to 4-20 mA and RS-485 interface

To connect the pressure meter to the measuring network one should put the cables inside of the pressure meter package, remove upper cover and connect the cables to the contact points in accordance with the scheme. The table below shows contact points designation layout.

For connection via current output use I+, I- and PWR contact points.
For connection via RS-485 use the PWR, D-, D+ and GND contact points.

Marking Designation
I- Current –
I+ Current +
PWR +(9…24) BV
D- RS-485 Line «B» or «DATA -»
D+ RS-485 Line «A» or «DATA +»

Measuring network diagram

of ZET 7012-I VER.3 digital gauge pressure

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-type” 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 pressure meters to a single ZET 7070 module (and up to 60 digital pressure meters if external power supply module is used).

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