Pressure sensors for harsh environment
As a supplier of embedded pressure sensors for almost 50 years, we have been familiar with the constraints of such environments on sensors and in particular miniature sensors.
Our experience and attentiveness to our customers’ needs has enabled us to develop some of the most reliable embedded pressure sensors on the market.
Our robust thin-film technology, combined with proven, high-quality electronic components, has been qualified for numerous automotive, motorsport, aerospace, military and energy applications.
Our flagship product
A harsh environment often combines several stresses applied to the sensor at the same time: shock, vibration, acceleration and temperature. However, in such applications, an unsuitable sensor can also be damaged by corrosive media, radiation, pressure peaks or pulses.
The PHE860 series provides a solution for such applications. Featuring EFE thin-film technology, it is made entirely of stainless steel and is therefore compatible with a majority of corrosive media. Its very low mass (<10g) is an important asset to withstand such environments while its miniature size allows installation in the most constrained spaces, as close as possible to the phenomenon to be measured. Available from 5 to 400bar, with or without integrated electronics (0.5-4.5Vdc) the PHE860 is operational from -40 to +125°C with excellent performance.
