Honeywell’s new small piezoresistive silicon pressure sensors offer a digital output for reading pressure over a specified full-scale span and temperature range in high-volume medical devices and consumer appliances. The MicroPressure Series sensor is calibrated and compensated over a specific temperature range for sensor offset, sensitivity, temperature effects and non-linearity using an on-board Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC). Measuring just five millimeters by five millimeters, the MicroPressure sensor is ideal for applications that require greater accuracy with a small footprint. They have strong stainless ports for product durability and are available in absolute and gage pressure ranges from ±40 mbar to ±2.5 bar; ±4 kPa to ±250 kPa; ±0.6 psi to ±30 psi.
The compact and highly accurate pressure sensors can be featured in medical devices, such as blood pressure monitors and air-suction pumps, as well as consumer appliances. The extremely small sensors feature an Internet-of-Things-ready interface to help customers bring compact, portable and lightweight products to market. The low power consumption allow for a compact product design and longer battery life.
