COMMON APPLICATIONS

About the CS12

The CS12 Submersible Pressure Transducer is designed for liquid level measurement applications. Stainless steel (316L and 304) construction and an ETFE cable jacket allows for installation in a wide variety of liquids. Precision tig welds and a high strength Nylon cable gland prevent liquids from entering the transducer. A wide diameter vent tube quickly equalizes the barometric pressure within the sensor body to ensure accurate level measurements. The CS12 is available in various output signals including 4-20mA loop powered for long distance transmissions and voltage outputs for low power, low current consumption.

Standard and custom cable lengths are available to simplify installation.

Reliable Liquid Level Measurement

Customizable design

The CS12 Submersible Pressure Transducer is the ideal solution for continuous liquid level measurement. This transducer was engineered with a high strength 300 series stainless steel (304 & 316L) metallic construction, corrosion resistant ETFE cable jacket, and a Nylon strain relief for compatibility in a wide range of liquids.

The CS12 features a configurable design, allowing Core Sensors to tailor the transducer to your applications operating requirements. Have a limited voltage supply at your installation? No problem! The CS12  is offered in a low power configuration, capable of operating from an unregulated power supply of 3-5VDC and consuming 3mA or less of current. Need an extra long cable length? No problem! Core Sensors offers both standard and custom cable lengths, ensuring you have enough cable to simplify your installation.

The CS12 Submersible Pressure Transducer is also great for non-submersible applications where flooding is a concern. While 100 PSI is the max rated submersion, the CS12 can be configured with pressure ranges above 100 PSI for non-submersible applications, ensuring continuous pressure measurement even during flooding events.
