The new DPI 705E range provides accurate, reliable pressure and temperature monitoring in industrial environments
RS Components (RS), a trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), a global omni-channel solutions partner for industrial customers and suppliers, is now stocking the new DPI 705E family of handheld pressure and temperature indicators from Druck, a world leader in piezo-resistive sensors and test and calibration instruments.
The range comprises two versions – the DPI 705E for use in safe areas and the DPI 705E-IS (Intrinsically Safe) for use in hazardous areas. These models combine a tough, durable design and build on and replace the highly regarded DPI 705 family. The instruments are designed for single-handed use and introduce new and improved features to ensure even greater accuracy and reliable pressure or temperature monitoring during commissioning, fault finding, and system testing, including leak testing.
A key advantage of the DPI 705E family is its enhanced accuracy, providing 12-month uncertainty up to 0.05% full scale (FS) over a temperature range of -10°C to +50°C. An extensive pressure range is covered – from 25mbar to 1400bar in Absolute, Gauge or Differential configurations.
The DPI 705E and DPI 705E-IS both have integrated pressure sensors and are designed to interface directly with external remote pressure or optional remote plug-and-play Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD) sensors, providing even more flexibility whilst out in the field. Each pressure sensor holds integral calibration data, meaning a single DPI 705E can be used with multiple remote sensors, allowing various ranges to be measured in seconds. The sensors hold a record of the calibration date, which is relayed to the operator through the ‘calibration due’ countdown shown on the pressure indicator’s display.
The leak test function is rapidly configurable between one, three or five minutes. The power-efficient design means that the indicators can be used for eight hours per day, six days per week for one year using a single set of batteries.
DPI 705E products are rugged, simple to use and suitable for widespread applications in industries such as utilities, HVAC, medical equipment, metrological laboratories and clean rooms, as well as for service and maintenance.
