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.
