Curtiss-Wright's Industrial division announced the launch of a new range of robust pressure sensors, which have been designed for numerous industrial pressure sensing applications across sectors including: factory automation, process control, automotive and specialty vehicles, hydraulics, pneumatics and environmental systems. The wide range of models and configurations offer an extensive choice of cost-effective solutions from low-cost, high-volume OEM production to high-performance Research & Development.
Featuring thin-film and diffused-silicon sensing elements, the piezo-resistive sensing technology is inherently accurate, small and robust with stainless-steel body construction. Stainless-Steel Technology: Thin-film polysilicon resistors are applied to a stainless-steel diaphragm that deflects under pressure from the measured media, providing a varying voltage that can be converted into other electrical outputs.
Benefits include long-term stability exceeding 0.1% per annum and excellent compatibility with a wide range of gas and fluid media, operating at ranges up to 0 to 4000 bar. Silicon Technology: The sensing element features a silicon diaphragm into which pressure-dependent resistors have been diffused.
