The PTX 300 series of pressure transmitters has been developed for the offshore oil and gas industries as a compact, high performance device for reliable and long term subsea use. Maintenance free, it is available with operating ranges up to 22,500 psi and is fully submersible with an ambient pressure rating up to 5000 psi. Originally designed for aerospace hydraulic systems, the PTX 300 series utilizes micromachined piezo resistive silicon pressure measurement technology, continually developed and proven by Druck for 30 years.
The product is packaged to suit the specific requirements of subsea hydraulic control systems.In particular, the high pressure containment rating, hydraulic transient protection and integrity of cable/electrical connections combine with the precision measuring technology to make the PTX 300 series a leader in this field.

The Subsea Control Module (SCM) acts at the heart of the Subsea Production System (SPS), providing electronic and hydraulic control of subsea tree and manifold valves and instrumentation. The hydraulic functions of the SCM are driven by the Directional Control Valves (DCV) that control the flow of fluid through the SCM to apply or vent hydraulic power to system valve actuators within the SPS. The PTX 300 is employed to measure the pressure within the hydraulic circuit of the SCM, in particular its function is to verify the DCV’s are operating correctly.
The PTX 300’s proven reliability, performance, hyperbaric and seawater tolerant design in a compact package contribute to the
strong pedigree with over 30,000 units deployed for this application up until 2010.
The PTX 300 Series design and construction makes the sensor equally suitable for other subsea sensor applications including:-
