The M5601 are wireless pressure and temperature transmitters, explosion-proof ATEX and CSA HazLoc (IECEx) certified that enables them to be used in hazardous environments.
These pressure transducers transmit the calibrated and temperature compensated signals via Bluetooth communication protocol (Bluetooth 4.2), enabling a wireless process control by that. The pressure transmitters are powered by a CR2032/CR2050W button cell and can be read out using an app or PC software for Windows® XP/7 and higher.
They measure the gage or absolute pressure independently of the media. The latter device is configured as a sealed gage* relative to a trapped volume, whereas the gage and compound version outputs the measurement relative to atmospheric pressure – the compound version also with negative pressure. All versions are available with various pressure connectors.
Wireless M560X series pressure transmitters* are recommended for their robustness, good long-term stability and numerous protective functions for demanding industrial applications. The medium only comes into contact with 17-4 PH stainless steel (1.4542); no internal O-ring is used! This allows all oils, including gasoline and other fuels, to be measured. They can even be used in contaminated water, steam and slightly corrosive liquids. The original M5600 differs by a lower pressure range, starting at 3.5 bar and no particular ATEX/HazLoc protection.
Parallel to the M5601 AMSYS GmbH & Co. KG also supplies a pressure transmitter for smaller pressure ranges of up to 350 mbar or 35 bar – the U5601. Both are water resistant to IP65 and exceed the latest CE and FCC guidelines for heavy industry. They are protected against overvoltage and reverse polarity and ATEX/HazLoc certified.

* Sealed gage is a kind of absolute pressure. It is used in particular for measuring the absolute pressure, at high pressures. However, unlike absolute pressure sensors, the trapped volume was not evacuated.
