Micro-Pressure Sensor Scrubs For Medical Duty

Honeywell’s MicroPressure Series piezoresistive silicon pressure sensor offers a digital output for reading pressure over a specified full-scale span and temperature range in high-volume medical devices and consumer appliances. The sensor is calibrated and compensated over a specific temperature range for sensor offset, sensitivity, temperature effects and non-linearity using an on-board Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC). Measuring 5 mm x 5 mm, it suits applications that require greater accuracy with a small footprint.

 

The MicroPressure board-mount sensors feature:

  • Strong stainless ports for product durability
  • Absolute and gage pressure ranges
  • ±40 mbar to ±2.5 bar; ±4 kPa to ±250 kPa; ±0.6 psi to ±30 psi
  • Low power consumption to support longer battery life for products
  • Support for multiple port configuration options            

A MicroPressure sensor datasheet and application notes are available.

An accelerometer measures the rate of change of an object’s velocity to monitor its movement.

From cell phones to industrial manufacturing, knowing when an object (or a person!) is nearby is a basic sensing requirement.
