SENSORTECHNICS' new barometric pressure sensors BSDX-BARO from Duff & MacIntosh Pty Ltd offer OEM customers very cost-effective and precise air pressure measurement in the range of 800 to 1100 mbar absolute. Other measuring ranges are also available on customer request.
BSDX-BARO pressure sensors are calibrated and temperature compensated from 0 to 85 °C and reach an overall accuracy of ±1 %FSS (including temperature effects). These devices feature an analogue 0.5...4.5 V output signal or, alternatively, a digital I2C-bus interface. The BSDX-BARO sensors incorporate the latest ASIC technologies to enable a high specification in small DIP-packages. Therefore they are especially suitable for space-saving PCB-mounting.
Important features of the new BSDX-BARO sensors are:
* Pressure range from 800 to 1100 mbar absolute (other ranges on request)
* Temperature compensated from 0 to 85 °C
* Overall accuracy of ±1 %FSS (including temperature effects)
* Analogue 0.5...4.5 V output signal, optional digital I2C-bus interface
* Miniature DIP package
Typical applications include barometer systems for weather stations and engine test cells, hydrology, laser interferometers as well as altimeter systems.
