MINIATURE DCE ABSOLUTE PRESSURE SENSOR
NOW HAS PIEZOSMART.
The new Type 4005 M5-size piezoresistive pressure sensor
has been developed for measuring absolute pressure in
engine applications, in particular for measuring the intake
and exhaust pressures where high accuracy and small
dimensions are a necessity.
The sensor uses DCE technology (Direct Chip Exposure) where the
measuring element is exposed directly to the medium. A perforated
shield provides mechanical protection and a protective coating
enables the sensor to withstand direct exposure to fuel and oil vapour.
The M5 size allows maximum mounting flexibility allowing the sensor to
be positioned for optimum measuring accuracy.
Although initially designed for applications in internal combustion engines,
the superb linearity, low hysteresis and high natural frequency make the
new sensor ideal for many applications where precision and small size
are required. The sensor is also available with PiezoSmart automatic
sensor identification, which simplifies installation and ensures that
operator errors during set-up are eradicated.
Kistler Instruments is one of the worlds leading manufacturers
of piezoelectric and piezoresistive precision sensors covering
acceleration, force, pressure and torque. Established in
Wintherthur (Switzerland) in 1957, Kistler is represented in over
50 countries and has subsidiaries in Germany, France, Italy, UK,
Japan, USA, China, Korea and Singapore.
Heavy investment in research and development, 15% of staff
worldwide are engaged in research and development, has
generated a number of innovations using piezoelectric,
piezoresistive and capacitive techniques to provide solutions
to numerous force, pressure and acceleration measuring problems.
These innovations include the world's first commercial quartz sensor,
two-wire constant current technology to integrate sensors with
microelectronic circuitry, high-temperature pressure sensors for
use up to 400 deg C and three-component force measuring sensors.
