Pressure Measurement

Differential Pressure Transducer for HVAC – Model 264


Systems 264 pressure transducers sense differential or gauge (static) pressure and convert this pressure difference to a proportional electrical output for either unidirectional or bidirectional pressure ranges. The 264 Series is offered with a high level analog 0 to 5 VDC or 4 to 20 mA output.

In a typical Setra configuration, a compact housing contains two closely-spaced, parallel, electrically-isolated metallic surfaces, one of which is essentially a diaphragm capable of slight flexing under applied pressure. The diaphragm is constructed of low-hysteresis material such as 17-4 PH SS or a proprietary compound of fused glass and ceramic (Setraceramâ„¢). These firmly secured surfaces (or plates) are mounted so that a slight mechanical flexing of the assembly, caused by a minute change in applied pressure, alters the gap between them (creating, in effect, a variable capacitor). The resulting change in capacitance is detected by a sensitive linear comparator circuit (employing proprietary, custom-designed ASICs), which amplifies and outputs a proportional, high-level signal.

  • 0 to 5 VDC or 2-wire 4 to 20 mA analog outputs are compatible with energy management systems
  • Reverse wiring protection
  • Internal regulation permits use with unregulated DC uower uupplies
  • Fire retardent case (UL 94 V-0 Approved)
  • Meets CE conformance standards
  • Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
  • Energy Management Systems
  • Variable Air Volume and Fan Control (VAV)
  • Environmental Pollution Control
  • Lab and Fume Hood Control
