The overload capacity is mainly aimed at applications in the market segments of water supply and irrigation systems. It protects the pressure sensor from possible damage from the water-hammer effect that fast-switching valves can cause.
Furthermore, in the future, the O-10, developed for the global market, will also be available with a condensation-resistant housing. This prevents the formation of condensation in the instrument, which can occur where there is a distinct difference between the fluid and the ambient temperature.
These options increase the durability, and thus the service life, of the O-10 pressure sensor in critical applications.
