The Series PD-39 X does not measure the differential pressure directly – instead, it uses two absolute pressure sensors to take the measurement indirectly. As well as reducing costs, this differential pressure transmitter is also more robust in relation to unbalanced (one-sided) overloading. The differential pressure range should be at least 5% of the standard pressure range. Each pressure side has two pressure connections, so the
Pressure measurements can be displayed and recorded on PC or Laptop with help of the software ControlCenterSeries30 (CCS30) and a seriel interface cable. Export of recordings to usual file formats possible. Up to 128 devices can be connected together into a KELLER Bus-system.
The Series PD-39 X does not measure the differential pressure directly - instead, it uses two absolute pressure sensors to take the measurement indirectly. As well as reducing costs, this differential pressure transmitter is also more robust in relation to unbalanced (one-sided) overloading. The differential pressure range should be at least 5% of the standard pressure range. Each pressure side has two pressure connections, so the PD-39 X is easy to use in pressure lines
So that the differential pressure can also be measured exactly if the standard pressure range/ differential pressure ratio is high, this series also features the tried-and-tested microprocessorbased technology that is used in Series 30 X. All reproducible pressure sensor errors (i.e. nonlinearities and temperature dependencies) are entirely eliminated thanks to mathematical error compensation. The sensor signals are measured with a 16-bit A/D converter, so the individual standard pressure ranges can be measured to an accuracy of 0,05%FS throughout the entire pressure and temperature range.
The transmitters have a bus-compatible two-wire RS485 half-duplex interface which is modelled on the ”MODBUS RTU”. KELLER offers interface converters to RS232 or USB for use here. The READ30/PROG30 program and the protocol are freely available. The interface offers these capabilities:
- Readout of pressure and temperature values for both sensors. This allows readout of the diffe- rential pressure as well as the two standard pressure ranges.
- Calibration of zero points and amplification.
- Scaling of the analog output to different pressure ranges or units.
- Configuration settings such as measurement rate, low-pass (LP) filter, bus address, etc.
- Readout of information such as serial number, compensated pressure and temperature ranges, etc.
The analog output is freely scalable via the interface. For flow measurements, the root of the differential pressure can also be outputted. The calculated value can be outputted via an analog interface (0…10 V or 4…20 mA).
The Series 41 X combines the ceramic measurement cell for low pressure ranges with the µP electronics of the digital Series 30 transmitter. The pressure values from the signals of the pressure and temperature sensors are determined by polynomial compensation (see reverse). The values can be displayed and stored on a PC via an RS485 interface and programming can also be carried out.
The transmitters are calibrated to the base range. The PROG30 software permits programming of the analog output signal in each section of the range within the base range (e.g. range 100 mbar. Output 4…20 mA for 20…60 mbar).
With KELLER RS converters K-100 Series, up to 128 transmitters can be hooked together into a bus system and read by means of a PC or laptop. READ30 software allows the current pressure of each transmitter to be read or the pressure activity of several transmitters to be recorded or stored whilst “on line”.
Piezoresistive pressure transmitter for applications in bio-reactors or autoclaves. The transmitter is compensated up to 150 °C and may be operated continuously or sterilised at this level, including the special circuit electronics
The transmitters are supplied in absolute or gauge versions, with current or voltage output.
The sensing component is a micro-machined silicon pressure chip of high sensitivity. An independent temperature sensor is integrated on the surface of the silicon chip
Series 22 DT was developed and homologated specially for use in so-called "bivalent" vehicles fitted with engines for combined natural gas/gasoline operation. The unconventional design with a small mass swept by the flow results in a fast response with temperature changes, the temperature being measured by an NTC or PT sensor located directly behind the stainless steel separating diaphragm. The same diaphragm transmits pressure via a capillary to a stress-free mounted silicon measuring cell.
The signal processing for pressure and temperature is carried out by an electronic module connected to the sensors by flexible conductors. Mounted to the back of the electronic module, which is directly connected to the 6-pole plug connector are the EMC protection components. A special feature is the immunity from interference from electromagnetic fields up to 200 V/m.
Series 22 offers a reliable cost effective solution for customers requiring medium to high quantities, of mass produced transmitters. Utilising the KELLER automatic brazing lines, this new technology allows crevice-free construction of the pressure port with no internal seals or O-rings, making possible high volumes at low cost.
In the brass 22 M, a steel insert and a nickel diaphragm are brazed into a brass housing. In the steel 22 S, all parts are stainless steel (AISI 316 L). The glass feed-through header and silicon pressure sensor are welded to the steel insert underneath the oil filling.
The electronic circuit is fitted to the Packard plug. EMC-protection-components are mounted on the plug side, the amplifier on the sensor side. A flexible printed circuit “TAB” connects the sensor with the electronics. The transmitters are designed to have exceptionally good EMC ratings and operate over a wide temperature band, ideal for automotive, hydraulic and refrigeration control applications
The DCX-18 ECO is an autonomous, rechargeable battery powered instrument. It features a stainless steel 18 mm in diameter housing designed to record pressure (water depth) and temperature over long periods at a very economical price. Its small size, rechargeable battery, fully welded housing and the relative sensor option are just a few of the many advantages provided by the DCX-18 ECO.
The electronics employ the latest microprocessor technology which give high accuracy and resolution for the pressure and temperature signals. The measured values are mathematically compensated for all linearity and temperature errors of the pressure sensor. The use of a non-volatile memory for data storage ensures high data security.
The sensor, electronics and the rechargeable battery are housed in a fully welded stainless steel tube for submersible deployment. For data read-out, the DCX-18 ECO must be recovered from the measurement point. The end cap, sealed by two O-Rings, must then be removed to access the serial interface. The DCX-18 ECO works with an absolute pressure sensor. In shallow water depths where the influence of barometric pressure changes should be considered, it is recommended that a second data logger (Baro) is placed at the surface, to record the barometric pressure. The PC then calculates the differential pressure resp. the water depth by subtracting the two measured values.

An optional cable is available for the DCX-18 ECO, enabling data retrieval or configuration and charging the battery without removing the data logger. For relative measuring devices, the cable incorporates a capillary tube which enables venting the relative sensor.
The DCX-18 ECO is charged over the USB connection with the K-104M converter connected to PC. For fast charging, connect the power supply unit or the car charging adapter to the converter. The charge status is displayed in the logger software
The DCX-22 is an autonomous, battery powered instrument made of stainless steel designed to record water depth (pressure) and temperature over long periods. Two versions are offered:

This data collector (Ø 25 mm) integrates a pressure sensor, electronics and battery in one housing. The electronics employ the latest microprocessor technology, which give high accuracy and resolution for the pressure and temperature signals. The built-in pressure sensor is mathematically compensated for all linearity and temperature errors. The use of a non-volatile memory ensures high data security.
The DCX-25 PVDF works with an absolute pressure sensor. For installation, the data collector is secured by a suspension cable and immersed into the media to be measured and must be recovered for data readout. In shallow water, where the influence of barometric pressure changes should be considered, it is recommended that a second data logger (e.g. DCX-22 Baro) is placed at the surface to record the barometric pressure. The Logger PC software then calculates the water depth by subtracting the two measured values. The housing of the data logger can be opened easily without any tools, thus allowing quick access to the replaceable battery and the interface connector for configuration and data download.
Interface with a PC is accomplished using one of Keller’s converter cables which are available in either RS232 connection (K103A) or USB connection (K104A). The necessary converter drivers are included with converter purchase, along with the Keller Logger software. This intuitive software provides the capability to customize the instrument, as needed, for each installation. Users can configure the DCX-25 PVDF to record at fixed time intervals, using fixed or eventbased start times, in user-selectable measurement methods to ensure that only the most useful and meaningful data is collected and stored.
For applications that do not require highest compatibility with aggressive media, Keller offers the DCX-16, DCX-18, DCX-22 and the DCX-38.

Configuration / Data Retrieval:
For data readout, the serial interface is accessed via the data port located on one end of the cable, enabling on site data retrieval. Using either the K-104A or K-103A converter cable, the DCX-38 VG connects easily to a laptop or PC via USB or serial port. Used in conjunction with Logger 4.X software, the DCX-38 VG is configured and data retrieved either in the lab or the field
LEO 2 is a compact, micro-processor (µP) controlled, highly accurate and versatile pressure measuring instrument with digital indication. The piezoresistive pressure transducer as the heart of the instrument has gone through extensive pressure- and temperature tests. Its characteristics are stored in the instruments internal EEPROM. The µP of the LEO 2 reads the characteristic values and calculates therefrom the pressure to an accuracy of < 0,1 %FS at room temperature.
The pressure is measured twice per second and displayed. The top display indicates the actual pressure, the bottom display shows the Max.- or Min.- pressure since the last RESET.
Also available as intrinsically safe version (LEO 2 Ei).
The LEO 5 combines the notable features of Keller’s successful LEO-Record and LEX 1 digital pressure gauges, featuring an IP66-rated stainless steel enclosure. This robust housing combines contemporary microcontroller-based electronics and capacitive-touch controls, operated through the environmentally-sealed safety glass front panel. The large backlit LCD display ensures readability in any lighting conditions.
Two selectable measurement modes, standard and peak, are included to ensure maximum versatility. In standard mode, high-resolution pressure measurements are taken twice per second. When operating in peak mode, sampling frequency increases to 5 kHz with 16 bit resolution.
The LEO 5 interfaces with a PC via USB connectivity, allowing access to active measurements and recorded data including pressure, peak pressure, temperature, and measurement interval. PC connection also allows device configuration, firmware updates, and recharging of the integral accumulator power supply.
The unique modular design of the LEO 5 makes possible adaptation to customer-specific measuring requirements.
LEO 5 CA offers a user-friendly way to represent the pressure measurement at the bottom of a tank as the quantity of remaining liquid. At the push of a button, the microcontroller performs the calculations using the information of the tank shape and dimensions and displays the remaining tank content quantity on the clearly legible 5-digit LED display in the desired unit (litres, gallons etc.).
The unit is configured using a PC and the easy-to-use software so that the filling level, which determines the pressure, can be converted into an appropriate filling quantity. First the tank shape is selected, then the tank dimensions and the specific gravity of the liquid are entered. It contains the most current tank shapes. The program covers the most common tank shapes, but also enables any shape by entering the parameters into a specified table.
The exclusive use of absolute pressure sensors in the LEO 5 CA system eliminates the use of capillary vented cables with all the problems associated with a gauge pressure measurement. The LEO 5 CA housing integrates an air pressure sensor, ranged between 0,8 bar and 1,2 bar absolute. The sensors to measure the hydrostatic pressure at the bottom of the tank are calibrated from 0,8 to 1,8 bar abs for tanks up to 5 m in height, and 0,8 to 2,3 bar abs for tanks up to 10 m in height. The pressure difference, calculated by the micro-controller, is the relative hydrostatic pressure. The content of a pressurised tank is determined using the difference between the measurements from two absolute pressure sensors located at the top and bottom of the tank
An accuracy of the system of up to 2 mbar (corresponding to a 2 cm water column) is achieved using a computerised calibration and compensation procedure for the pressure sensors.
LEO 5 CA makes it possible to connect various pressure probe transmitter versions (with thread, front-flush with flange, or submersible sensors).
The power supply to the system (8 to 28 V) can be provided externally or internally from an accumulator or a battery. The display is obtained by pressing the button on the front, and the value appears for a configurable duration. The LEO 5 CA has two switch outputs with configurable functionality and threshold values. The device must be supplied externally if the switch outputs are used.
