SOR Launches New Pressure Switch-Transmitter

Lenexa, KS (PRWEB) May 30, 2013

SOR Inc. has launched a compact, rugged, explosion proof pressure switch-transmitter with independent discrete and continuous outputs (either 4-20mA or 1-5VDC).

The SOR® 805QS is a cost effective, compact, loop-powered pressure switch-transmitter. Its rugged construction and three-year warranty makes the cost of ownership low. The 805QS is ideal for the oil and gas industry where hazardous locations and hostile environments require a process instrument that is explosion proof, hermetically sealed and enclosed in a stainless steel housing. An optional flush diaphragm seal is available and is designed to prevent substances from clogging the pressure port. These materials include oil and petroleum with high concentrations of paraffin.

The switch set points and continuous output zero and span points are field adjustable via the optional calibration kit.

“The 805QS is a “stick” transmitter which minimizes its footprint. Our solid state normally open switch offers a unique window-type operation that closes when the pressure is between the minimum and maximum set points and opens when the pressure is outside of this range,” said SOR Product Manager Lance Cooper. “The 805QS switch is configurable, with the optional calibration kit. It offers three types of switch functions to best suit the customer’s application needs. When the unit loses its power source or stops working, all three switch actions are designed to change to the open state indicating a fault condition,” said Cooper.

The 805QS video describes how the switch output works. It demonstrates the “set it and forget it” dependability of the switch in wellhead pump control and shutdown applications, among others.

Since 1956, SOR Inc. has offered a comprehensive line of level, pressure, temperature and flow instrumentation for a wide variety of industries and applications. SOR Inc. has a registered quality system to ISO 9001:2008.

World headquarters and manufacturing facilities are located in Lenexa, Kansas with sales offices in the United Kingdom and China. SOR Inc. also supports its markets worldwide with more than 100 Representatives. Visit us at
