Board Mount Ultra-Low Pressure Sensors

Honeywell (NYSE:HON) continues to expand its TruStability® Board Mount Pressure Sensor platform with a new Ultra-Low Pressure Sensor that provides industry-leading long term stability, Total Error Band (TEB), accuracy, flexibility, and high burst and working pressures.

The TruStability® Ultra-Low Pressure Sensors HSC (High Accuracy Silicon Ceramic) Series and SSC (Standard Accuracy Silicon Ceramic) Series use new Honeywell proprietary technology that combines three performance factors difficult to achieve in the same product: high sensitivity with high overpressure and burst pressure. This technology protects the sensor without sacrificing the ability to sense very small changes in pressure, as well as provides high durability amid environmental factors such as temperature and humidity.

TruStability® Ultra-Low Pressure Sensors perform substantially better relative to stability than any other pressure sensor available in the industry today, even after long-term use and thermal extremes. This quality minimizes system calibration needs, maximizes system performance, and helps support system uptime by eliminating the need to service or replace the sensor during its application life.

“It is more difficult for a pressure sensor to maintain high levels of stability in applications that require ultra-low pressure ranges,” said AJ Smith, Global Product Marketing Manager for Honeywell Sensing and Control. “Typically, pressure sensors used for ultra-low pressure applications are more susceptible to damage due to the high pressure conditions. TruStability® Ultra-Low Pressure Sensors’ use of Honeywell proprietary technology provides industry-leading stability and performance while tolerating high working pressure and over-pressure conditions.”

These new devices provide an amplified compensated digital or analog output for reading pressure over the full scale pressure span in the ultra-low pressure range of ±2.5 mbar to ±40 mbar [±1 inH2O to ±30 inH2O], providing support for many unique industrial and medical applications.
