DST P10B CANopen pressure transmitter - our rugged and well proven sensor platform now with an embedded CAN bus interface.

We deliver a CANopen DS 301/DS 404 communication profile on top of our well known and market proven DST P140 pressure transmitter platform. Allowing you to add sensors - in the control loop or the monitoring system – to your existing higher level fieldbus communication. Creating a more intelligent interface to the smart sensor and reducing complexity on the controller I/O and cable harness side.

The DST P10B CANopen pressure transmitter is designed to provide unrivaled reliability, durability, performance, and not least, digital possibilities in markets, such as the water-pump and air-compressor markets. MEMS technology, stainless-steel design, and a hermetically sealed media interface ensure that the transmitter can withstand even the harshest application environments. And, thanks to its CAN bus communication interface you can get access to additional data/information from the sensor as well as ease your integration into your application.


Features and benefits


Optimized product packaging of the MEMS sensor and the signal-conditioning electronics deliver excellent vibration resistance, thermal management properties and protection against moisture ingress.

Thorough testing

A "test-to-failure" method is an important part of the Danfoss product-development process, providing increased product-design and specification insight. This method also allows for faster


The diagnostic capabilities of this transmitter will benefit customers today — saving on troubleshooting costs — and well into the future, as more and more products have integrated electronic capabilities.


The new and modular electronics platform and the fieldbus interface enables customers to configure and fine-tune the sensor performance specific to their application needs.

Lower system cost and simplified root cause analysis

Simplify the wire harness and free up analog I/O’s at the edge/application by connecting your sensor to your fieldbus channel

The DST P10B CANopen pressure sensor is designed with focus on:

Water distribution

Better pressure control in water pumps reduces water and energy loss significantly in the water industry.

Air handling

Industrial air compressors – with piston or screw technology – for low, medium, and high-pressure applications.

Other industries

Wide applications fit up to 50 bar possible
