Rugged titanium sensor provides reliable operation in harsh environments
HAMPTON, Va., Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Measurement Specialties (NASDAQ: MEAS), an expert in sensor design and manufacturing, has released the rugged XP5, a miniature pressure sensor with SanShift technology that eliminates zero shifts caused by installation torque.
Designed for use in environments involving measurements in corrosive liquids and gases, as found in automotive, military and aerospace applications, as well as for rugged onboard equipment monitoring, the XP5 features a body and flush diaphragm constructed of titanium and is laser welded for increased durability.
A temperature-compensated Wheatstone bridge with high stability micro-machined silicon strain gauges makes up the core sensing technology of the new sensor. This enables the user to select various levels depending upon available options.
The XP5 can be used in both static and dynamic applications, and is available in absolute, sealed and gauge configurations from 1 bar to 70 bar, with a sealed format available up to 350 bar.
Several options, including an onboard amplifier for ranges from 5 bar to 350 bar as well as a custom temperature probe for all ranges, provide design flexibility and sensor customization to fit specific application requirements.
The IP50-rated XP5 conforms to EN 61010-1, EN 50081-1 and EN 50082-1. Frequency response in a non-amplified XP5 ranges from 108 kHz to 700 kHz. In addition, IP67 and IP68 versions are available upon request.
Pricing and delivery for the XP5 is dependent upon quantity ordered.
