Environmental Sensors Enlist MEMS Technology

Based on Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology, Bourns’ latest line of environmental sensors includes three pressure sensor model families and one humidity sensor model family. The Bourns Precision Sensor (BPS) line is designed for industrial automation, energy, building & home control, low/medium-risk medical, and mil/aero applications.


The sensors feature state-of-the-art technologies that provide the ability to operate in harsh environments.  The BPS110 and BPS120 pressure sensor models deliver extremely accurate ultra-low-pressure sensing capabilities for sensitive applications. They offer fully calibrated and compensated output for more efficient processes as well as long-term stability for reliable repeatability. 

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


The Model BPS130 pressure sensor line features harsh media compatibility and high temperature operation with high accuracy. This sensor family offers particularly stable performance over the product’s lifespan, and the ability to work with a wide range of pressures. Bourns also offers port configuration and calibration customization for all three BPS pressure model families.


The Model BPS230 family offers precision relative humidity sensing in a small (2.0 x 2.0 x 0.75 mm) surface mount package.  Bourns’ new line of humidity sensors features low current consumption for battery supported applications and low voltage operation compatibility with high reliability over the life of the sensor.
