Model T6100 Lock in Place I/P Pressure Transducer

Enquire about this product:

Uniquely, the Fairchild T6100 "Lock in Last Place" feature now provides flexibility, reliability, and safety in applications requiring protection from signal failures to critical control system instruments.


  • Locks in Last Position to accurately capture setpoint.
  • Extremely low drift after power loss permits transducer to maintain set point.
  • IP65 Rating to handle moist applications.
  • Single part number makes it easy to specify and cover all your needs.
  • Superior construction including a moisture resistant PCB and zinc coated components.

Operating Principles

Design of the T6100 relies on a proprietary integrated solenoid valve module interposed between the flapper-nozzle pilot and the booster section. Upon signal failure, an electrical charge stored within the active electronic circuit controlling the integrated solenoid valve module maintains the current to the voice coil at its last setpoint. Simultaneously, a high energy pulse closes the solenoid valve, trapping the signal within the signal chamber at the last setpoint. The booster continues to provide its normal forward and exhaust flow, with the constant signal pressure now captured and maintained within the signal chamber.

The electronic circuit activates the solenoid valve immediately upon detection of a signal that falls below a base value of 3.5mA. Upon restoration of the signal, the electronic circuit sends a high energy pulse to open the solenoid valve, restoring the pilot section's pressure control of the signal pressure to the booster as in a typical transducer. The electronic detection circuit, in series with the T6100's signal conditioning circuit, merely adds an additional voltage drop to the T6100's normal control loop. Advanced valve orifice design of the T6100 increases its forward flow capacity to a minimum of 5 SCFM to 21 psig supply pressure.

FIPA presents: Oval vacuum cups

Introducing the newly developed oval vacuum cups series.

The vacuum cups are characterised by a very long cycle life, which has also been successfully demonstrated against vacuum cups of competitors in practical operation. The long service life is enabled by means of a new high wear- and oil-resistant NBR material and a special vacuum suction cup construction which minimises the load on the vacuum cup during handling.


FIPA presents: New ID grippers for parts with different diameters

Flexible and service friendly

The pneumatically operated, single-acting ID grippers from FIPA GmbH have already established themselves as the alternative for workpieces with holes or cut-outs or for when vacuum cups or grippers aren’t just right for handling goods. FIPA has completely overhauled its portfolio and now offers users maximum flexibility with minimal set-up time.

The small ID grippers are now equipped with food-safe gripper heads made of polyamide (PA) and are suitable for light and small parts with openings measuring 3 to 10 millimeters in size. If necessary, the gripper heads can be easily exchanged in a non-destructive manner.
