Transducers
Transducers are used to convert one form of energy into another.

There are two primary types of transducers: sensors and actuators. An electronic thermometer, for example, is a sensor that detects heat energy and reports temperature. A transducer is needed to convert the heat energy into an electrical signal that can be displayed on a gauge or meter. Actuators, on the other hand, receive an electrical input signal and perform a physical action. Transduction occurs when the signal is converted into a force.

Transducers are found in most automation, measurement and control applications. They are commonly used to report force, pressure, position or current values. They are also used to convert signals for measurement.

The 2200 and the 2600 feature proven CVD sensing technology, an ASIC (amplified units), and modular packaging to provide a sensor line that can easily accommodate specials while not sacrificing high performance.
1200 Series Image
  • CVD Sensor Stability and High Sensitivity Allows Use of Thicker Diaphragm - 17-4 PH SS Sensor Beam Is Laser Welded for Distortion-Free Construction
  • ASIC Chip Is the Brains behind the Brawn - Programmability Provides Greater Linearity Correction than Common Thermal Compensation Methods
  • RFI/EMI & ESD Protection Circuit Meets and Exceeds Requirements for CE Marking - Protecting Against Noise, Voltage Spikes, and Static Discharge
  • Thicker Diaphragm for Handling Pulsating Pressures – All Stainless Steel Wetted Parts
  • Weldless Stainless Steel Case
The 1200 Series features stability and toughness via its CVD and ASIC design coupled with a thicker diaphragm. The thicker diaphragm enables these sensors to survive most pressure spikes caused by pump ripple, solenoid valves, etc. The 1600 Series extends the packaging options by providing an all welded stainless steel back end for demanding industrial applications. A modular design allows special ordering of fittings, electrical cables, etc. for OEM applications. The ASIC and CVD technology enables Gems to offer almost any output over any pressure range.
