RSS of Non-Linearity, Hysteresis and Non-Repeatability
2 Units calibrated at nominal 70°F
3 Approximately 50% higher for 0-14.7 psiv range
4 Calibrated into 50K ohm load. Operable into 5000 ohms or greater.
5 Zero output factory set to within ±10mV. Span (Full Span) output factory set to within ±10mV.
Note: Both output leads are normally 1.6 VDC above the negative excitation lead at zero pressure. Either negative excitation or negative output should be connected to case (ground). But both leads cannot be connected to case (ground). Unit is calibrated at the factory with the negative excitation connected to case (ground.)
6 Calibrated at factory with a 24 VDC loop supply voltage and a 250 ohm load. Specifications subject to change without notice.
