Compact electronic pressure regulator

Type 550X miniature electropneumatic I/P, E/P transducer is ATEX compliant and converts a variable signal (current or voltage) to a proportional pneumatic output.


  • NEMA-4X housing standard for safety
  • Input and output ports on front and back for versatile plumbing
  • Up to 20 scfm air flow, input signal of 4-20 mA
  • Output pressure ranges from 3-15, 3-27, 6-30, 2-60, and 3-120 psig (standard) and 0-30, 0-60, 0-120 psig (zero-based)
  • Electrical connections include ½ NPT conduit terminal block and DIN 43650
