IRVINE, Calif., 14 Nov. 2016. Meggitt Sensing Systems in Irvine, Calif., is introducing the Endevco model 8523 high-temperature pressure sensor for inlet distortion pressures in turbine engines, transmission pressures in automobiles and rocket motor analysis applications.

The sensor uses silicon strain gages to enable gage and differential measurements, and is designed for static or dynamic pressures.

Compared to a similar sensor on the market, the 8523 provides twice the output for improved signal-to-noise ratio and tighter linearity specifications combined with minimum 2X over-range capability, Meggitt officials say.

Additional performance benefits include ruggedness to withstand harsh environments, stability over a wide temperature range, and miniature size to fit easily into tight spaces.

The sensor has 15, 50, 100, 200, and 500 pounds per square inch gauge pressure (psig) ranges; 300 millivolts full scale output for signal-to-noise ratio; temperature to 260 degrees Celsius continuous; accuracy with 1 percent linearity at two times full scale range; and high resonance frequency for dynamic response.

The MEMS sensing element is designed for maximum sensitivity and wide frequency response. Internal temperature compensation provides accuracy over its -54 to 260 degrees C operating temperature range.
