Barometric Pressure Sensors combine high accuracy and low power over a wide range of pressures and temperatures.
Model 61302V provides a calibrated 0-5 VDC analog output. Analog current consumption is less than 3 mA. A special “sleep” mode further reduces current to about 1 µA. RS232 serial output is also available in the standard sensor. Model 61302L features a standard 4-20 mA analog output. Two serial options, RS-232 and RS-485, are included with this model. The compact size of the barometer allows easy placement in most standard instrument enclosures. A plug-in connector simplifies wiring. For outdoor use, an optional Weatherproof Enclosure offers a convenient mounting location while the Pressure Port helps minimize dynamic pressure errors due to wind.
MODEL 61302L Barometric Pressure Sensor is a versatile electronic barometer featuring high accuracy, low power, wide operating temperature range, and calibrated 4-20 mA output, and RS-232/485 serial data I/O. The 4-20 mA output and RS-485 serial I/O make the 61302L ideal for commercial and industrial applications that commonly use these signals. Full scale current output may be set to span any portion of the 500 to 1100 hPa operating range. Serial output options include continuous or polled ASCII text output or NMEA marine output. The sensor is supplied with the following standard configuration:
The sensor operates over a temperature range of -40°C to +60°C and must remain dry. Electrical connections are made with the 5-position terminal plug included with the sensor. Jumper settings may be used to select operating options. Access jumpers by loosening two screws in the sensor enclosure and removing the cover. See Appendix A for wiring details and jumper settings.
Operation begins approximately 1 second after power is applied. Output will appear after a delay determined by the number of samples averaged and the output rate. With default values (1.8 Hz output and 10 samples averaged), output begins after an initial 5 second delay then remains continuous at the 1.8 Hz rate. Parameters for output rate and number of samples averaged may be changed using software commands.
he MODEL 61302L barometer requires no regular maintenance. Periodic calibration certification, if required, is available from the factory.
