Merit Sensor Systems, Inc., announces: New Ultra-Low Pressure Sensor Family of Packaged Pressure Sensor Products
Merit Sensor Systems, Inc., announces the launch of its new line of super stable, ultra-low pressure sensor products capable of meeting pressure monitoring requirements within a range as low as 4 inches H2O (10 millibar, 1 kPa, 0.15 psi,). The new LP Series pressure sensor assembly is a surface mountable (SMT), eight-pin design available in both uncompensated and compensated output configurations. The compensated LP Series versions include both high-accuracy analog and digital ratiometric signal output options with each compensated option providing full compensation for offset, temperature and span variability.
Merit Sensor’s L Series piezoresistive MEMS pressure sensing element is the heart of the LP Series package. The L Series is a proprietary Merit Sensor MEMS sensing element design specifically engineered to offer superior burst pressure and stability performance characteristics. The L Series MEMS die output is specified at a highly sensitive 50,000uV/V/PSI for a 0 to 4 inches H2O operating range.
“We are excited to add the LP Series family of ultra-low pressure sensor packages to our pressure sensor portfolio,” stated Rick Russell, Merit Sensor president. “Last year we introduced the TR Series sensor solution to address a market need for harsh media pressure monitoring, and today we are adding ultra-low pressure sensing capability to our portfolio. Merit Sensor has a great tradition of providing pressure sensor products with superior stability and drift performance and the LP Series continues this focus. We expect this product will give application and system engineers new levels of accuracy and pressure monitoring performance.”
