Medical and industrial applications for pressure sensors that are under 150 psi can use low-cost board mounted plastic packaged sensors. Medical applications include hospital beds, oxygen concentrators, wound therapy and blood pressure monitoring. Industrial applications include HVAC transmitters, air movement control, environmental control, leak detection, pneumatic controls and other commercial applications. For these types of applications, Honeywell’s newest TBP Series pressure sensors are basic board mount pressure sensors, compensated, unamplified and intended for printed circuit (pc) board mounting. The TBP Series sensors are available in a wide pressure range (1 psi to 150 psi, 60 mbar to 10 bar, 6 kPa to 1 MPa) and operating temperature ranges from -40 °C to 125 °C (-40 °F to 257 °F) and a 0 °C to 85 °C compensated temperature range. The sensor’s size of 7 mm x 7 mm (0.276 in x 0.276 in) takes minimal pc board space. For more information about Honeywell’s TBP Series pressure sensors, click here.
