(Lenexa, KS, USA – December 15, 2014) SOR Controls Group, Ltd. continues to grow the popular 800 series pressure transmitter line with the addition of the 815DT smart differential pressure transmitter. The 815DT is joining the recently introduced 815PT and 805QS in addition to the original 805PT. SOR reliability makes these pressure transmitters perfect for applications where space is tight.


The 815DT is a loop powered, microprocessor based differential pressure transmitter offering a configurable single-pole, single-throw, normally-open, solid-state relay. The configurable solid state relay provides a discrete output signal that can be used for signaling, control and emergency shutdown functions. It is also packed full of powerful communications capabilities with HART®7 communication protocol and Modbus RTU serial communications protocol (RS-485). The 815DT is a smart differential pressure transmitter that is compact, light weight, rugged and explosion proof rated; thus, it is suitable for hazardous locations and hostile environments. Ranges available include: 0-138 in H2O, 0-415 in H2O, 0-50 psid, 0-100 psid, 0-300 psid and 0-500 psid.

The 815DT features allow for oil & gas field operators, pipeline operators and plant operators to have the proper control and monitoring capability to protect equipment, people and the environment. Operators can improve asset management and increase process uptime with the 815DT due to its low cost.
