    Hello all,

    This is my first post as I just found out about this great forum.
    I'm currently creating a testing room and I've just bought 12 pressure transducers but the supplier was not helpful when it came to selecting the power supply.

    All I know is that they have a range of 7-32V and need about 3 mA per pressure transducer, so times this by 12

    I would like something reliable and stable with no voltage drops as it is used for testing. Also if I need to have 2 or 3 power supplies I don't mind.


    Regards

    Simon

    Do you have a datasheet on these pressure transducers?

    Have you used pressure transducers before?

    What is your intended application for said transducers?

    Usually you'd need to employ an instrumentation amplifier to get a usable output.

    Yes, the pressure transducers are unik 5000 from ge, here is a link to the brochure:

    http://www.ge-mcs.com/download/pressure-level/920-483F-LR.pdf

    I'm using option 3 0 to 5 V 4-wire, under Supply and Outputs with non-hazardous.


    No I haven't used them before, the application is for reading the pressures with in piping systems. I have a data logger ready to log the readings yet I'm not able to use the transducers due to not having a power supply.

    The data logger is meant to be find with working with these transducers I checked with the supplier of both data logger and pressure transducer.
