New pressure sensors for hostile environments

13 March 2016

All Sensors Corporation of Morgan Hill, California, recently announced a new offering of stainless steel, media-isolated pressure sensors. The SPM 401 Series sensors offer design engineers high performance in various applications, especially for low-pressure and smaller solutions.

Media-isolated sensors are designed to operate in hostile environments and yet give the outstanding sensitivity, linearity and hysteresis of a silicon sensor. This pressure sensor is compatible with 316L stainless steel, a type of steel that increases corrosion resistance, improves resistance to pitting from chloride ion solutions and provides increased strength at high temperatures.

Ideal applications for this device include process control and monitoring systems; medical devices and biomedical instruments; HVAC controls; ship and marine systems; aircraft and avionics systems; environmental engineering; laboratory and calibration applications; fresh and waste water measurements; pressure transmitters; and tank level systems.
