Dynamic and Static Pressures Accurately Measured Across High Temperatures in Miniature Pressure Sensor from Measurement Specialties

Rugged construction and advanced sensor technology ensure excellent performance

HAMPTON, Va., April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Measurement Specialties (NASDAQ: MEAS), an expert in sensor design and manufacturing, offers the XPC10, a miniature pressure sensor that accurately measures both static and dynamic pressures across a wide operating temperature range of -40 degrees C to +220 degrees C.

The new XPC10 uses a rugged, stainless steel housing to protect the sensor from corrosive liquids, chemicals and gases found in many industrial, military and aerospace applications. Combined with its compact profile, as small as 12 mm, the XPC10 is easily installed in a number of harsh environments including test benches, oven monitoring equipment and cooling regulation systems.

Measurement Specialties' SanShift technology, incorporated into the new sensor, ensures long term performance by eliminating zero shifts caused by installation torque.  A foil strain gage wired in a fundamental Wheatstone bridge circuit is at the core of the sensor to provide excellent temperature stability. 

The XPC10 is available in absolute, sealed and gauge ranges from 10 bar to 500 bar, with an onboard amplifier available for all ranges, as well as in M10x1 or 3/8-24 UNF threaded designs.  Standard output impedance is less than 1 kilo ohm, with less than 100 ohms available upon request.  Custom sensors can incorporate an optional temperature probe and titanium construction in addition to IP67 ingress protection and a lower pressure range down to 5 bar.

Technical Specifications:

  • Low installation torque sensitivity
  • For static and dynamic applications
  • Stainless steel construction, miniature housing
  • Linearity up to +0.25% F.S.
  • Operating temperature range of -40 degrees C to +220 degrees C

Pricing and delivery for the XPC10 is dependent upon quantity ordered.
