DTC3 – Differential Pressure Transmitter

The DTC3® is the latest analog pressure transmitter designed for non-safety nuclear applications and manufactured by Ultra Energy. The Ultra Model DTC3® Analog Differential Pressure Transmitters provide precision pressure measurements in non-safety nuclear applications requiring reliable performance and functional safety. The DTC3® transmitter contains only analog electronics utilizing a diaphragm isolated direct-coupled strain gauge pressure sensor capsule. The DTC3® transmitter has been designed to replace the Rosemount™ 1151 Analog Pressure which was discontinued in 2011.

  • Can High Static Line Pressure Zero Effect be calibrated out?

    Yes. The High Static Line Pressure Zero Effect can be calibrated out by the customer. If it is not calibrated out, the error associated with the High Static Line Pressure Zero Effect is as follows:
    ±0.25% URL for 1,000 psi (6.89 MPa) static pressure change
    Please note: Suppressed or elevated zero ranges (where LRV is not 0) cannot easily have their static pressure effect calibrated out.
