FLUID POWER: The Ashcroft® CXLdp low pressure transducer is now available with jumper-selectable 0-5 or 0-10V dc outputs, as well as the original 4-20mA output configuration. Specifically engineered to provide stable, reliable differential pressure measurement in HVAC building control systems, the CXLdp is available in bidirectional and unidirectional ranges from 0/0.1 through 0/25.0 inch H20 and in accuracies of 0.8 and 0.4 percent FS. Other standard features include high over-pressure capability, LED status light, RoHS compliance and a CE EMI/RFI immunity rating. A small housing and multiple installation options allow the CXLdp to be easily attached to a DIN rail, conduit or wall. With a convenient detachable terminal block electrical connector, the CXLdp can be installed without power interruption.
