I/P Converters, also known as E/P Converters or current to pressure converters, are a highly technical device, used in a range of process industry applications. I/P Converters operate by taking an electric current and converting it into a proportional pressure output. In their most basic form, E/P Converters are precise proportional valves, designed to deliver accurate downstream pressure to a system.
Ideal for applications where a variable pressure is required, but remote regulation and accuracy are key, I/P Converters are often used in the UK for gas distribution systems. Most commonly, the electric current from an I/P Converter is either 4…20mA, or 0…10v. Outputs can range depending on the individual specification of a E/P converter unit. Watson Smith and Norgren are leading manufacturers, producing ATEX I/P Converters, intrinsically safe, and general use I/P converters.
Current to pressure converters are suitable for a wide range of applications, as they boast high stability, low maintenance and wide range of air supply options. This range of features means an E/P Converter can be applied in demanding, natural gas applications, to more general industry use. Watson Smith also has a range of ATEX I/P Converters, that are suitable for use in hazardous environments.
