Electronics component distributor Heilind Electronics has added All Sensors Corporation (an Amphenol Company), a manufacturer of high-accuracy, piezoresistive low and ultra-low MEMS pressure sensors and pressure transducers, to its growing sensor line.

Heilind’s sensor portfolio now encompasses low pressure sensors for medical and industrial applications, spanning a pressure range from 0.25 in. H2O to 150 PSI.

All Sensors, based in Morgan Hill, Calif., supplies pressure sensors specially designed to maintain high accuracy and repeatability. For instance, the company’s MLV Series Compensated Sensor, which incorporates the company’s CoBeam2 technology, provides a high output signal at a low operating voltage while maintaining comparable output levels to traditional equivalent compensated millivolt sensors operating at higher voltages. This lower supply voltage gives rise to improved warm-up shift, while the CoBeam2 technology reduces package stress susceptibility, resulting in improved overall long-term stability.
