About the CS-SM

The CS-SM Steel Mill Pressure Transducer is designed to withstand the rugged demands of the steel mill industry. Standard configuration includes a stainless steel body welded to a high strength stainless steel sensing element offering 4X overpressure protection, integral snubber to protect against pressure transients and an IP69 rating. Electrical connections include integral cable or a 6-Pin Bendix with a variety of output signals and process connections.

High Strength Pressure Transducer

Built for the toughest environments

  1. Snubber: A integral snubber (or restrictor plug) is standard on the CS-SM, dampening the pressure spikes that are common in steel and rolling mill applications. Even with the addition of the snubber, the CS-SM is still capable of responding to pressure quickly; ~1kHz for voltage outputs and ~250Hz for 4-20mA current output.
  2. Overpressure Protection: By carefully selecting the appropriate diaphragm thickness, the CS-SM is capable of achieving 4X overpressure protection and 10X (or 20,000 PSI) burst pressure protection. These protections are critical in applications such as stamping and roll forming as the sudden pressure events can easily exceed the intended application pressure. Transducers without high overpressure and burst pressure protection run the risk of permanent damage and potential damage to other equipment if the pressure cannot be monitored and controlled properly.
  3. IP69 Rating: A 6-Pin Bendix electrical connector is precision tig welded onto the sensors body, providing an IP69 rating. This ensures the sensor will continue operating, even during high pressure washdown events.
