Expect more from a basic sensor

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADurable and robust Honeywell NBP basic board mount pressure sensors are now available from TTI. They are designed to offer a simple, cost-effective, mV output, unamplified, uncompensated, high resolution solution for medical and industrial applications.

These unamplified and uncompensated sensors measure absolute and gage pressures and offer infinite resolution of the pressure signal. They are ideal for customers who want to do their own compensation, calibration and amplification in order to make use of the maximum resolution of the bare sensor output, using a custom algorithm required for the application.

Several package styles are available with different mounting options, making it easier for device manufacturers to integrate the product. Sensors can be as small as seven by seven millimetres for easy placement on crowded PCBs or in small devices.

NBP series sensors are intended for use with non-corrosive, non-ionic gases, such as air and other dry gases and for non-corrosive, non-ionic liquids. Operating temperature range is -40 to 125°C. Absolute versions have an internal vacuum reference and an output value proportional to absolute pressure. Gage versions are referenced to atmospheric pressure and provide an output proportional to pressure variations from atmosphere.
