Automated Control and STS introduce the ATM.mini pressure transmitter: highest precision and smallest possible design
The new precision pressure transmitter by STS packs state-of-the-art technology in a durable
miniature package and is particularly suitable for demanding measurement tasks in test and measurement applications.
Developers in the automotive, aviation and mechanical engineering industries rely on unadulterated measurement results. Even the smallest inaccuracy can delay development times and drive up costs.
With the ATM.mini, the Swiss precision specialist STS is now launching a new pocket-sized measuring instrument that offers engineers certainty with regard to the accuracy of their data. The ATM.mini reliably measures pressures up to 100 bar with a precision of 0.5 percent total error across a temperature range from -40 to 125 ° Celsius. The ATM.mini offers this precision even in complex long-term tests thanks to the optional “burn-in” method: “Using this procedure, STS eliminates the slight stress that are produced by the sensor’s mechanics right from the factory to achieve excellent long-term stability,” says the product manager Michael Herzog. The durable stainless steel case and the overpressure resistance ensure durability even under harsh conditions.
Apart from the technical data itself, it is the dimensions of the ATM.mini that offer developers new possibilities for testing prototypes. Since the weight of a measuring instrument itself can have an impact on the measured data, it often has to be adjusted retroactively. Weighing only 50 grams, the ATM.mini is a real lightweight that eliminates this extra effort. The small outer dimensions of 17,5 x 49 millimeters allow the pressure transmitter to be easily mounted on small or winding components. variety of available pressure and electrical connections offer users flexibility. Regarding the output signal, customers can choose whether the measured values are transmitted via a current signal (mA) or a voltage signal (VDC). If customers do not find the ideal solution in STS’s extensive product portfolio of modular measuring instruments,they can inquire about an individual solution that meets every detail of their specifications.
