PC board mountable pressure sensors

January 10, 2006
A low-cost, high-performance line of pressure sensors, the new PX70 Series comes packaged in a transistor (TO-5) case suitable for PC board mounting. It is available in full-scale ranges from 0.3 to 100 psi and in four standard package options — no fitting, top fitting, bottom fitting and differential. For gage and absolute ranges, the PX71 can be ordered without fittings, while the PX72 has a top-mounted tube fitting (bottom is vent). The PX73, also available in gage ranges, has a bottom tube fitting (top is vent). For differential measurements, the PX74, with top and bottom tubes, can be used for uni- or bi-directional results. PX70 models are compatible with clean, dry, non-corrosive gases. Price starts at $40.
