Setra 526 Submersible Pressure Transducer


  • Superior Stability Avoid Downtime
  • IP30, IP65, IP68 Rated
  • ±0.25% FS Accuracy, Optional ±0.15%
  • High Shock and Vibration Resistance
  • Meets CE Conformance Standards




Setra’s model 526 pressure transducer is designed with a thicker diaphragm for robust industrial and submersible applications that require exceptional stability and high accuracy. Depending upon the electrical connection selected, when coupled with the Model 526 enclosure, which is fabricated in 316 SS/17-4 PH SS, this unit is rated for IP30, IP65, and IP68 operation. The Model 526’s modular design is offered in a wide choice of millivolt, voltage or current outputs over almost any pressure range, and a variety of pressure and electrical connections, enabling this unit to be custom configured for an OEM application.

Principle of Operation

Using the well-proven Wheatstone Bridge Principle, a chemical vapor is deposited in thin layers or silicon and silicon dioxide onto a stainless steel sensor to form a very sensitive and accurate polysilicon strain gauge. The elements of the strain gauge are fused together at the atomic level, assuring the strength and integrity of the bond, which exceeds the adhesives used in common bonded strain gauge pressure sensors. A custom designed ASIC performs signal amplification and temperature compensation. This technology offers the user the option of configurable output and pressure ranges, sets the zero and span tolerance, and ensures interchangeability from unit to unit.
