By means of the PE-converter it is possible to transform pneumatic signals into electrical signals. The advantage of this converter is that the switching operation is not commenced by a mechanical contact like it is with conventional converters, but though magnetism. This attribute grants our PE-converter a high durability. Through the self contained design of the change-over contact, the converter is additionally protected from moisture and splash water, which benifits the application in moist areas. Furthermore the converter is ideal for installation into control cabinets or directly into the pipe, thanks to its small size.
