Endevco model 8530CMeggitt Sensing Systems, a Meggitt group division, has announced the latest addition to its popular Guaranteed InStock program, the Endevco model 8530C series, with quantities now available for immediate customer shipment.

Offered in 15, 50 and 100 psia ranges and with corresponding high resonance frequencies of 180 kHz (15 psia), 320 kHz (50 psia) and 500 kHz (100 psia), the Endevco® model 8530C series offers 225 mV full-scale output and a non-linearity specification of less than 1% at 3x over-range. Transducers are rugged to 20,000 g shock and offer an industry best-in-class minimum 4X burst pressure, with non-repeatability and pressure hysteresis errors of less than 0.50% FSO for all ranges, making it the most accurate series of its kind.

The Endevco model 8530C series features an active four-arm strain gage (gauge) bridge, diffused into a sculpted silicon diaphragm, for maximum sensitivity and wideband frequency response within a compact (3.86 mm dia.) and lightweight (2.3 grams) package. The volume behind the diaphragm is both evacuated and glass sealed to provide absolute reference. The transducers also feature integral temperature compensation for stable performance over a range of -18 to +93°C (0° to +200°F). Units are supplied with integral cable and include electrostatic discharge (ESD) packaging as standard. Custom cable lengths are available upon request. A 10-32 UNF-2A mounting thread is also standard, with an optional integral four-pin connector (M37).

The unique design and performance characteristics of this series are ideal for the testing of wind turbines; hydraulic and pneumatic systems pressures; automotive door panel crash conditions; vehicle transmission performance; and high-speed train and light rapid transit (LRT) system laminar airflow. Recommended accessories include the model 136 three-channel signal conditioner, model 4430A signal conditioner, or model 4990A (Oasis). For more information, visit www.meggittsensingsystems.com.
