BP16 Strain Gauge Pressure Transducer




The LCM Systems range of Pioden Transducers has been widely used for many years.

The BP16 range of pressure transducers combine the excellent performance of bonded foil strain gauge technology with a single piece stainless steel diaphragm construction they provide an excellent price/performance ratio, suitable for use in many arduous measurement applications.

The BP16 construction makes it ideal for a wide range of applications, including, hydraulic lifting, mobile hydraulic vehicles, portable test gear and air frame test rigs amongst others.

The most popular version of the BP16 is the integral cable version, which is supplied with a 2 metre PVC cable length. However, an integral connector version is also available, as are versions with different cable lengths or different cable types.

The BP16 offers a variety of amplified outputs in the same packaging arrangement (a separate data sheet is available detailing these).

LCM Systems can supply the BP16 on it's own or integrated with any of the wide range of strain gauge based instrumentation available from LCM Systems.
