AMHERST, NH, USA – November 2008 – – ControlAir Inc. is proud to announce the introduction of the Type-595XP Explosion-Proof I/P Transducer. This unique current-to-pressure transducer is small in size and light weight, yet is less sensitive to shock vibration and position change than most other I/P’s. The unit’s low power consumption, along with it’s worldwide agency approvals for intrinsic safety and explosion-proof, make it ideal for hazardous environments in remote locations.
The unique conversion technology utilizing open loop control provides a high level of regulation accuracy and repeatability for the operation of actuated valves. A low mass control circuit provides reliable linear output in difficult applications at an economical cost. The Type-595XP can mount in any position and is stable in high vibration environments.
The Type-595XP holds agency approvals from Factory Mutual (FM) and Canadian Standards Association (CSA) as intrinsically safe and explosion-proof. It is also compliant with the ATEX directive 94/9/EC for equipment intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
The unit is ideal for applications where power is at a premium, such as, booster stations in remote locations that often do not have access to compressed plant air for operation of pneumatic valve actuators. Other applications include valve control where the environment can be hazardous, in such industries as, chemical, petrochemical, paint, mining, and oil and gas.
ControlAir Inc. manufactures precision pneumatic and electro-pneumatic controls. ControlAir’s markets include oil and gas, process control, semiconductor, printing and converting presses, diagnostic and surgical medical equipment, robotics, quality control, automotive, analyzers, compressors, pumps and paint equipment.
