Neuron Vacuum Pressure

The wireless vacuum pressure sensor measures from -1 bar to +1 bar.

The pressure transducer comes in a rugged stainless steel housing and can be used in a wide range of applications.

Experience how easy it is to get started and the huge benefits of our simple and practical IoT solutions.

General Description

The Neuron Vacuum Pressure sensor measures the ±1 Bar pressure of a liquid or gas relative to ambient atmospheric pressure. It has an accuracy of ±0.5% of full scale with a resolution 1 mBar.

The transducer element transmits the pressure digitally to the Neuron wireless transmitter over a 50cm M12 5-pin cable. The transducer can measure media from -40 – 125°C and is compatible with liquids and gases that are compatible with 304 stainless steel. It has a process connection of 1/4” G and the assembly has an IP67 protection class for rugged and rough measuring environments.

 

Principle of Operation

The Neuron Vacuum Pressure consists of two components: a pressure transducer and a radio transmitter.

The pressure transducer is equipped with a G 1⁄4” Male process connection and a round M12 connector for electrical connection to the radio transmitter.

The radio transmitter powers the pressure transducer and read the pressure signal thru the provided cable and sends the data wirelessly to the Neuron Gateway.

The radio transmitter has a strong build-in magnet for secure fastening on magnetic materials.

Every 30 seconds the sensor measures the pressure and if the pressure has changed more than the critical value (depending on pressure range) since the last transmission, the sensor reports immediately. Otherwise, it reports every 2 minutes.

 

Features

  • Integrated long life battery – up to 10 years lifetime
  • Built-in magnet for easy and secure fastening on the asset
  • Continuous measurement and instant alarm
  • Adjustment of parameters such as measurement frequency on request
  • Define your own alarm levels in the Neuron app
  • Receive alerts as push notifications, emails or SMS
  • Easily connect the sensor to the system with the QR-code on the sensor. Ensures immediate and accurate registration in the app on your phone/PC/tablet
  • The sensor transmits data to your nearby Neuron Gateway which then again communicates with the Neuron Cloud

Installation

Neuron sensors are ready for use out of the box and will start logging data after registering the sensor in the app. Even though Neuron sensors deliver great range and long battery life, following some simple guidelines for mounting of the sensor and gateway can greatly improve signal coverage and lifetime of the sensor.

To ensure optimal antenna performance and signal strength, the sensor should be placed elevated with some distance to fixed objects. Keep in mind that RF-signals are greatly affected by close metallic surfaces.

For sensors with an external antenna, the antenna should be clear off the metallic surface.

For sensors operating in environments with greatly varying temperatures, care should be taken to avoid putting the sensor in unnecessary stress. Very high or low temperatures will affect the battery life and the signal strength of the sensor. While some sensors must be close to the source of heat or cold, other sensors have external probes which allow the sensor to be placed at a distance.

Fastening
The small, compact blue Neuron sensors are fitted with fastening holes for use with cable ties. The sensors are also delivered with double-sided tape that may be used for fastening of the sensors.

All the black Neuron sensors, like the Neuron IR380 and Neuron Vibration, are fitted with a strong magnet at the back for easy fastening. If there is no magnetic surface, then double-sided tape is a good solution.
