In 1945, Walter Pepperl and Ludwig Fuchs founded a small radio workshop in Mannheim, Germany, based on the principles of inventiveness, entrepreneurial foresight, and self-reliance. The experience they acquired was transformed into new ideas, and they continued to enjoy developing products for customers. The eventual result was the invention of the proximity switch. This innovation represented the starting point of the company's success story.
Today, Pepperl+Fuchs is known by customers around the world as a pioneer and an innovator in electrical explosion protection and sensor technology. Our main focus is always on your individual requirements: With a passion for automation and groundbreaking technology, we are committed to working in partnership with you now and in the future. We understand the demands of your markets, developing specific solutions, and integrating them into your processes.

Hydrostatic Pressure Sensors

The pressure in a liquid increases with increased filling height. This hydrostatic pressure is transmitted to the measuring cell via a stainless steel diaphragm. Foam, build-up, fluctuating electrical properties of the liquid and the container design do not affect the measurement values.
The fill level of a liquid can be determined by the hydrostatic pressure if the density is known. The piezoresistive measuring cell is coupled to the measuring liquid via a stainless steel isolation membrane and diaphragm seal.
The value of the measuring cell can be converted via a signal conditioner into one of the following output signals:

  • 4 ... 20 mA analog signal
  • 4 ... 20 mA analog signal with HART
  • PROFIBUS PA digital signal 

The pressure sensors are available in the following versions:

  • Externally mounted type
  • Rod type
  • Suspended type
