Electronics piezoresistive pressure Sensor

KISTLER GROUP 4017A piezoresistive absolute pressure sensor combines improved measuring features with universal applicability. Device’s compactness, design and improved media compatibility makes it suitable for use in engine development as well as hydraulic and pneumatic applications, in both hot and cold environments. The miniature absolute PR pressure sensor has a mounting size of M5x0.5 and was specifically designed for maximum robustness and accuracy. Its oil-filled measuring cell is media-isolated by a stainless-steel diaphragm and delivers a very high level of media compatibility for both gaseous and liquid media. With a compensated temperature range from –20°C to +140°C, the sensor can also be used for low-temperature tests. The digital temperature compensation allows a high level of accuracy (≤1% FSO), even in harsh environments.
