All Sensors Corporation of Morgan Hill, California has announced the availability of additional BLC Series pressure ranges. The BLC Series now includes high pressure ranges from 5 psi to 150 psi. This device series offers design engineers excellent performance for pressure ranges of ±1 inH2O through ±30 inH2O, and now 5 psi to 150 psi gauge and differential and 15 psi to 150 psi absolute.
The BLC Series basic low-pressure compact sensor is based on All Sensors’ CoBeam2 TM Technology. The devices provide a high output signal at a low operating voltage, maintaining comparable output levels to traditional equivalent basic sensing elements. This lower supply voltage gives rise to improved warm-up shift while the CoBeam2 TM Technology reduces package stress susceptibility, resulting in improved overall long-term stability. The technology also vastly improves position sensitivity compared with conventional single die devices.
This series is intended for use with non-corrosive, non-ionic working fluids such as air or dry gases. The compact size of this series will provide excellent opportunities for small mobile devices. The basic output is also ratiometric to the supply voltage and is operable from 0.9 to 1.8 volts DC, ideal for battery applications. Devices are available in 1, 5, 10, 20, 30 inH2O (0.2, 1.2, 2.5, 5, 7.5 kPa) and 5, 15, 30, 100, 150 psi (34, 103, 207, 689, 1034 kPa) differential and gage as well as 15, 30, 100 and 150 psi (103, 207, 690, 1034 kPa) absolute pressure ranges.
