BPB-A-T
Pore Pressure Transducer

Summary

Embedded in a boring or together with a pile or steel sheet pile. These transducers measure pore water pressure Recommendable Excitation Voltage. Embedded in a boring or together with a pile or steel sheet pile, BPB-A/BPB-A-T series transducers measure pore water pressures or pore pressures. If desired, they can be used as pressure-based underground water level transducers by installing in a well. Recommendable Excitation Voltage. The BPB-A-T series is provided with temperature measuring function for simultaneous measurement of pore pressure and temperature. The cable length may be changed as specified.

Features

Small-sized design, 30 mm in outer diameter, enables installation in boring of small diameters. Flat filter (10μm mesh standard) is provided to prevent the sensing part from clogging. Stainless steel case (including flat filter FB-10SUS)
