Germany-based Gneuss Kunststofftechnik GmbH has updated its line of melt pressure and temperature
measurement and monitoring sensors to optimize the mechanical and electronic component design and
add new products.
Improvements to the line include: mercury-free Gneussmedium option for all pressure
transducers, offering accuracy comparable to mercury; three-year performance guarantee; externally
accessible auto zero function and auto zero button on melt pressure transducers with integrated
amplifiers; enhanced electromagnetic interference resistance; explosion-proof design, Can-Open –
DSP404 protocol and HART communication, and “turn down” pressure measure range adjustment function
available for active melt pressure transducers with integrated amplifiers; enhanced
abrasion-resistant surface treatments; and improved insulating properties for melt temperature
sensors to ensure measurement accuracy.
