High-Performance Pressure Transducers from Measurement Specialties
High-performance pressure transducers.
Hampton, VA — Measurement Specialties (NASDAQ: MEAS) has expanded its line of pressure sensors with two compact, high-performance units for demanding industrial applications. The M7100 and U7100 feature high reliability at a low price point.

The new IP67-rated pressure transducers withstand high vibrations as well as harsh conditions, such as dust particles, contaminated water and corrosive fluids, making them suitable for use in demanding engine, vehicle and industrial applications. Their compact size is suitable for many of today's on-highway and off-highway engines, HVAC controls and energy and water management equipment.

Designed for high reliability, the M7100 and U7100 eliminate wire bonds and use only one PCB as well as only a few components. Total error band (TEB) is 1 percent over the sensors' --40 to +125°C operating temperature range. Output voltage is 0.5 to 4.5VDC. The new sensor has a pressure cavity machined from a solid piece of 17-4 PH stainless steel and comes standard with a 1/4 NPT pipe thread for a leak-proof, sealed system, with other port sizes available. The sensor provides a pressure range from 200 to 10,000 psig and uses the company's Microfused silicon strain gage for exceptional sensing characteristics.

Constructed of 316L stainless steel, the new U7100 offers exceptional durability with a variety of leak-proof, all-metal pressure connections, handling a lower pressure range from 15 to 150 psig for more precise applications. The unit integrates the company's proprietary UltraStable technology for excellent performance and long-term stability over wide temperature ranges. Both sensors have stainless steel hermetic pressure ports to protect the integrity of the internal components. No internal O-rings or welds are used, further enhancing long-term durability of the sensors.

In addition to being water resistant to 1 meter, the new sensors can be customized for high volume applications.
