Filter Minder® Heavy Duty Pressure Sensor-Image

How Does It Work?
The sensor monitors vacuum and/or pressure on filter systems or virtually anywhere vacuum or pressure needs to be monitored. It gives a progressive output from .5 to 4.5 volts full scale. It is an absolute sensor not vented to atmosphere and can measure vacuum and/or pressure from .5 to 300 psia (3.4 to 2068 kPa). Some applications include: fuel pressure, oil pressure, air pressure, water pressure, gaseous pressure and others. See specifications for standard mounting and connector availability. Special mounting and connectors available if annual volume warrants (contact Filter Minder).
