Barksdale introduces BPS3000 with IO-Link

28 November 2018

Barksdale has announced the first release of the Generation 3000 Series with IO-Link digital communication protocol - the BPS3000. The BPS3000 is part of Barksdaleā€™s Generation 3000 Series of electronic products that includes Pressure, Temperature and Level sensor technology.

IO-Link is a bi-directional, digital, point-to-point serial communication protocol used to connect digital sensors and actuators to optimize industrial automated processes or operations. IO-Link technology corresponds to the international standard IEC 61131-9.

The BPS3000 also offers transmitter functionality by supplying analogue output signals 0 to 10 V DC to 4 to 20 mA respectively. The full-scale output can be adjusted to as low as 25% of FSO during installation - enabling more flexibility and reducing the need to stock multiple pressure ranges. Fully digital point to point communication is available via IO-Link capability. IO-Link mode allows quick remote parameterization, easy diagnostics, and data storage capabilities, supporting smart factory applications and reducing system downtime.

With a panel height of just under four inches and a diameter well under two inches, the BPS3000 allows installation in compact locations. The IP67 class rated housing makes this unit suitable for the wettest of environments, and even full submersion. Pressure ranges are available from 0 to -1 bar up to 0 to 600 bar, with absolute pressure ranges up to 10 bar.
