ROSEMONT, IL /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- Infineon Technologies introduced two new industrial sensors, the KP124 and KP125 pressure sensors. On display an the Infineon booth (# 327) at the Sensors Expo, Rosemont, IL (June 9–11), these devices expand the family of high-accuracy barometric pressure sensors Infineon supplies for demanding industrial applications.
"The KP124 and KP125 are extensions of Infineon's proven pressure sensing technology and are ideally suited for process control, gas flow, consumer, and other industrial pressure measurement applications," said Andre Wankelmuth, Pressure Sensor Marketing Manager for Infineon Technologies. "These sensors are specifically tailored for industrial applications in more rugged environments."
The KP124 and KP125 are surface-mount devices that permit convenient package design and manufacturability, and the sensor packages are green for environmentally conscious design. The sensors' accuracy is ± 1.2 kPa (± 1.5% F.S.), over an operating range of 40–115 kPa, at temperatures from –40°C to 125°C. Sensor transfer functions are calibrated, and the outputs are ratiometric relative to the power supply voltage. Infineon has also incorporated open supply, open ground, and broken pressure-cell detection and inverse polarity protection in the sensors to ensure customers more reliable products.
