Pressure sensors suit medical applications

The new ABP series of basic amplified board mount pressure sensors from Honeywell have been launched on to the European market by Acal BFi. Boasting high performance and reliability in a compact package, the sensor series provides the industry’s smallest, compensated, amplified pressure sensor in its class at 8mm x 7mm x 3mm.

In addition, its small size helps to significantly save board space and reduce manufacturing costs and its low current consumption (2uA) with sleep mode enabled allows for use in battery powered applications.

Suitable for use across a wide pressure range, from 1 psi to 150 psi, the ABP series is ideal for medical and industrial applications, including blood pressure monitoring, ventilators and air brakes due to its enhanced sensitivity.

This piezoresistive silicon pressure sensor offers 56 different pressure ranges to improve system accuracy and resolution. The APB series are available with either ratiometric analogue or digital outputs for reading pressure over the specified full scale pressure span and temperature range.

As a European approved Honeywell distributor, Acal BFi has stock of the ABP series and a technical team able to offer product advice, design-in and logistics support.
