P/N W-101-GU



The 278 atmospheric pressure transducer is designed for use in environmental applications that require excellent accuracy, fast dynamic response, and long-term stability and reliability. To withstand the environmental extremes typically found in Automated Weather Systems (AWS) applications, the Model 278 housing is constructed of stainless steel and polyester. A terminal strip is provided for connection to DCP’s signal/power supply connections, and a 1/8” Barbed fitting is used for pressure connection. The transducer’s footprint (3.6” x 2.4” x 1.0”) making it ideal for use as a new or drop-in replacement to existing configurations.
