Miniature pressure sensors

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Kistler has released the Type 601C miniature pressure sensor, available in both charge output and voltage output types it is suited to a variety of applications where very small pressure pulses need to be measured.

The high sensitivity of the PiezoStar crystal developed by Kistler, claimed to be much higher than that possible with quartz, allows small pressure fluctuations which are superimposed on static pressures to be measured.

In addition to the high sensitivity and small size, the new charge output sensor has an operating temperature range from -196 to 350°C at pressures up to 250bar.Typical applications include pressure pulsation on pumps and compressors and dynamic measurements on pyrotechnic devices.
