The Seametrics PT2X-BV is a special version of the PT2X designed to measure barometric and vacuum pressure in reference to absolute pressure, along with temperature and time. It will measure pressure/ vacuum from 600 to 1100 millibars.
Pressure measurement is accomplished utilizing an extremely rugged and stable 15 PSIA piezo-electric media-isolated pressure element combined with a 16-bit analog-to-digital converter. This provides extremely accurate and stable pressure input into the microprocessor on the circuit board that measures the pressure, stores the data in non-volatile memory, and communicates the information via a serial communication link (RS485) to the host computer.
Temperature measurement is accomplished utilizing a temperature sensor chip.
The PT2X-BV is available in two enclosures – either an ABS weather-proof box or a stainless steel tube. The tube version is available with either a solid end cone or an NPT end cone for connecting to piping.
The PT2X-BV can be networked with other Seametrics Smart Sensors and controlled directly from a single computer.
While most will use the PT2X-BV with our Aqua4Plus 2.0 software, it is by no means limited to that software. You can use your own Modbus® RTU or SDI-12 software or logging equipment to read measurements, thus tying into your existing telemetry and control systems.
- Provides barometric compensation for PT2X sensors with free Aqua4Plus software.
- Stores over 520,000 records of pressure, temperature, and time data.
- Includes RS485 interface for easy networking.
- Available in a weatherproof box or 316 stainless steel tube (NPT optional).
Built on Seametrics’ Pressure & Temperature Smart Sensor platform, the PT2X-BV is an ideal barometric reference for absolute versions of our PT2X pressure sensors.
Storing over 520,000 records of pressure, temperature and time data, this sensor features easy-to-use software and operates on low power—using two AA batteries during normal output or an auxiliary power supply for data-intensive applications.
- Measures temperature in addition to barometric and vacuum pressures.
- Comes with easy-to-use Aqua4Plus control software.
- Available in two different casing options: a weatherproof box or 316 stainless steel tube (with an NPT option).
- RS485 network—provides easy connections with other Seametrics Smart Sensors.
- Barometrically compensate absolute pressure sensors for level measurement.
- Measure vacuum pressure during vapor extraction pilot testing.
- Supplement aquifer test data in leaky or confined conditions.
