    Description of the Barometric Pressure Transducer:

    Description
    The CPT 6100 Barometric Pressure Transducer is a high accuracy barometer that delivers high performance in a compact design. RS-232 or RS-485 allows the 6100 Barometer to communicate with any MS-DOS compatible computer over the serial port. A 9-pin D-sub connector is provided to simplify the connections to the serial port of the system or host computer. Barometric pressure readings can be displayed directly on digital readouts or collected remotely within data acquisition software.
    Proprietary characterization techniques help the CPT 6100 Barometric Pressure Transducer achieve an accuracy of 0.010% of reading (R) from 8 to 17 psia over the compensated temperature range of 15 to 45 oC. This insures a high level of performance at varying temperatures. The recommended calibration interval is 180 days. The accuracy statement includes linearity, hysteresis, repeatability and temperature errors over the compensated range. Zero and span can be adjusted via the serial interface. There are no other adjustments required by the end user.

    Applications
    The CPT 6100 Barometric Pressure Transducer is used in OEM devices like pressure calibrators, flow calibrators, humidity calibrators or any device that requires a high accuracy barometric pressure measurement. It is used as a pressure standard in conjunction with automated production of pressure devices, or as a standard for barometric pressure calibration in test stands. High accuracy makes it suitable for measurements in metrology, aerospace, health care, pharmaceutical and meteorology applications.


    Functional Flexibility
    The CPT 6100 Barometric Pressure Transducer has RS-232 or RS-485 communications. The RS-485 interface provides true multi-drop connection and cabling simplicity. There are four baud rates available. The CPT 6100 Barometer delivers a percent of reading accuracy between 8 and 17 psia. It has a wide power input range (6 to 20 vdc), and low power consumption (<½ watt). It delivers high performance  in a small footprint.
