Piezoresistive low pressure sensors

First Sensor has launched a piezoresistive manifold low pressure sensor with measuring ranges from imbar to 7bar. Typical applications can be found in medical devices, HVAC, instrumentation as well as industrial and pneumatic controls

First Sensor presents its new piezoresistive low differential pressure sensors of the HID series with measuring ranges from i mbar to 7bar. The very small and flat sensors with a footprint of only 8 x 13 mm and a height of <7mm are ideal for spacesaving manifold assemblies. The HID differential pressure sensors feature digital signal processing with 15 bit resolution and an SPI interface as well as an analogue output signal.

The high-accuracy and long-term stable sensors with 3.3V or 5V supply are suitable for battery-powered applications in mobile and portable devices. In manifold modules, the SMD miniature sensors allow a compact arrangement without the elaborate and error-prone tubing of individual components. For pick-and-place machines in high-volume production, the HTD sensors can optionally be supplied on tape and reel.

Additional output signals such as 12C bus, 1-wire, alarm outputs or pulse width modulation are available on request. The sensors are temperature compensated from o...7o°C and provide a temperature reading in addition to the pressure value.
Typical applications of the HID sensors can be found in medical devices (ventilators, anaesthesia machines, CPAP, spirometers, oxygen concentrators), HVAC (volumetric flow controllers, filter monitoring, burner control), instrumentation as well as industrial and pneumatic controls.

Important features of the HTD differential pressure sensors:

* Pressure ranges from imbar to 7bar

* Footprint 8 x i3mm, height <7mm

* Ideal for manifold mounting

* SPI interface with 15 bit resolution
