Video Transcript

Hi, and welcome to APGTV. I’m Shaw Merrill, and today we’re going to show you a cool feature for the PT-500 submersible pressure transducer. It’s our patented cage, which is actually removable.

We’re going to show you how to take this thing off, and how it’s going to save you money when you have to replace your sensor.

Now the cage provides the PT-500 a little extra protection when installed in harsh environments, extending the life of the sensor. However, at some point, every sensor is going to fail, and so replacing a sensor and cage can be expensive.

If you can replace just the sensor, it can save you some money.

Removal Instructions

Step 1: To remove the cage from the PT-500, first make sure the PT-500 is sitting flat on a counter or a hard surface.

Step 2: Now to remove that cage, simply remove the retaining ring with your C-ring pliers. Then remove the PT-500 from the cage.

Installation Instructions

Step 1: To install the cage on the PT-500, just place the sensor in the center of the cage and then replace the retaining ring on the inside of the rivets.

Thanks for watching our quick PT-500 removable cage demo. If you’d like to learn more, contact us at 888-525-7300, or send us an email to Until next time, I’m Shaw Merrill, APGTV.
