Sick PBS Plus Pressure Switch / Sensor - The Versatile and Multifunctional Sensor!

Sick has upgraded its pressure sensor offering with the versatile and multifunctional PBS Plus, combining electronic pressure control, measurement and real-time monitoring in one IO-Link enabled device.

The PBS plus is an electronic pressure switch, pressure transmitter and display in one. Available with up to two switching outputs, analog output and IO-Link. It is set using three large pushbuttons and the display or via IO-Link. The housing has a choice of mounting positions - the display and the electrical connection can be optimally aligned to make it easier to read.

Sick PBS Plus at a Glance:

  • A choice of switching outputs (PNP/NPN) and analog output (current/voltage)
  • Scalable analog output (5:1 turn down)
  • High measurement accuracy: ± 0.5%
  • IO-Link for transmitting process data to the control as measured values in bar
  • Housing can be turned in two places (process connection/display) and display can be rotated by 180°
  • Common process connections, also with flush-mounted membrane

With measuring ranges of 0.4 bar to 1,000 bar (gauge pressure), the PBS plus can be used in many different applications. It also has absolute pressure and vacuum measuring ranges. The PBS plus is highly resistant to corrosion due to the fully-welded stainless steel membrane. Process data is transmitted to the control via IO-Link as measured values in bar. The diagnostic options make it possible for temperature values to be read out in °C and minimum and maximum values for temperature and pressure to be monitored.

What are the Benefits?

  • Low storage costs, short delivery times, low number of variants
  • Reduced installation time - housing and display can be rotated at two points
  • Rugged design: stainless steel measuring cell
  • No special conversion of IO-Link process data is required - automatically as measured values in bar
  • Extensive diagnosis options via IO-Link deliver data for predictive maintenance
  • Economic solution for hydrostatic level measurement (high accuracy and small measuring ranges)

Suitable Applications Include:

  • Measurement of system pressure in hydraulic systems
  • Control of the clamping pressure in CNC machines
  • Monitoring of the cylinder pressure in hydraulic presses
  • Control of the pressure in cooling and lubricant systems
  • Hydrostatic level measurement
  • Measurement of system pressure in PET bottle production

“The beauty of the PBS Plus is its versatility. With easy configuration by IO-link, the PBS Plus can be simply adapted to your measurement and switching requirements without ordering several different variants.” 
Darren Pratt, Product Manager Sick UK
