Pressure sensors and vacuum sensors

Festo pressure sensors and vacuum sensors

Pressure sensors and vacuum sensors are used to measure the pressure present at the pressure input of a sensor. This is done with the help of a pressure measuring cell built into the sensor, which compares overpressure or underpressure with the existing ambient pressure and outputs deviations as an electrical signal. In addition, a pressure or vacuum sensor can be used to detect whether an applied negative pressure is above or below a defined switching threshold. This information is also output as a binary, electrical signal, but can also be output as a proportional analog signal or as a digital measured value via IO-Link®.

Festo pressure sensors SDE5

In our core program you will find the pressure sensors SDE5 – an inexpensive alternative for quick and easy pressure checks. They are suitable for pressure and vacuum detection as well as for object detection via dust pressure. Other features of the pressure sensors SDE5 are selectable output functions, programming using the teach process and a switching status display using LEDs that are visible from all sides. The quickest switching point settings can be made at the touch of a button. Festo pressure sensors SDE5 are available as a plug or cable version and can be installed in a very short time thanks to QS connections and a linkable wall bracket.

Festo pressure sensors SPAN

Also in the Festo core range are the pressure sensors SPAN, which are suitable for monitoring compressed air and non-corrosive gases. The measuring method is based on a piezoresistive measuring cell for relative pressure measurement. The pressure value is transmitted to the connected control system as a switching signal, as an analog signal or via IO-Link®. The pressure sensors SPAN are used for pressure monitoring, network and leak testing as well as object detection. The pressure sensors can be installed quickly thanks to the versatile installation options (front panel, threaded and wall mounting, row mounting with mounting brackets) and the quick connection. The clear display and the intuitive menu navigation are just as characteristic as the compact design.

The right products for every measuring process

In addition to the pressure sensors and vacuum sensors from our core range, we have a number of other products, including PE converters, pressure switches and pressure transmitters. All our brands have in common that they are very compact, attractively priced and versatile. They are suitable for the exact measurement of vacuum and pressure values and thus meet the requirements of various industrial applications. Festo pressure sensors and vacuum sensors impress with maximum flexibility and user-friendliness.
