Honeywell is announcing its new Basic Board Mount Pressure Sensors, Compensated, Unamplified, TBP Series. These new sensors are designed for customers who require a simple, high-quality, cost-effective, basic performance mV output sensor that is compensated and unamplified so they can do their own amplification while retaining maximum resolution.
Jacqueline Leff, senior product marketing manager, says: "The new TBP Series are designed to be flexible to meet the varying needs of our customers. Their small size and numerous package options simplify placement on crowded PC boards, a wide pressure range allows for use in applications requiring higher pressures, and their low current consumption allows for use in battery applications. Additionally, customers can count on a fast response for quotes and samples, and a supply chain that is available throughout their development cycle."
The TBP Series, used to measure gauge pressures, may potentially be used in medical applications including hospital beds, oxygen concentrators, wound therapy and blood pressure monitoring, and industrial applications such as HVAC transmitters, air movement control, environmental control, leak detection, pneumatic controls and other commercial applications.
Gauge pressure sensors are referenced to atmospheric pressure and provide an output proportional to pressure variations from atmosphere. They are intended for use with non-corrosive, non-ionic gases, such as air and other dry gases, and for non-corrosive, non-ionic liquids when the silicone gel coating option is selected. The TBP Series are designed and manufactured according to ISO 9001 and are ROHS compliant.
Honeywell's TBP Series Basic Board Mount Pressure Sensors offer a wide pressure range (1psi to 150psi, 60mbar to 10bar, 6kPa to 1MPa) and an operating temperature range from -40degC to 125degC (-40degF to 257degF) and a 0degC to 85degC compensated temperature range. Their size of 7mm × 7mm (0.276 in × 0.276 in) is small when compared with most board mount pressure sensors, simplifying installation. The TBP Series have an unlimited shelf life after the packaging is opened, can be calibrated within 1 hour after reflow solder, and are compatible with modern lead-free, no-clean solder processes.
