PLYMOUTH, Minn., 20 Oct. 2013. The Honeywell Inc. Microelectronics & Precision Sensors segment in Plymouth, Minn., is introducing an enhanced version of the company's PPT2 precision pressure sensor for measuring pressure data in avionics, test & measurement, and meteorology applications.

The latest version of the pressure sensor is smaller and lighter weight than its predecessors. The PPT2 is electromagnetic interference (EMI)-compliant and designed with Honeywell's silicon sensor technology with microprocessor-based signal conditioning to conform to specifications of next-generation systems.

The sensor measures 2.47 by 0.97 by 1.56 inches and weighs 4.4 ounces. It is accurate to ±0.0375%FS over its operating temperature range of -40 to 85 degrees Celsius.

Applications for the PPT2 include air data measurement in unmanned vehicles and commercial aircraft; meteorology measurements in data buoys; and flight test, instrumentation and calibration of test equipment.
