The Series 8 pressure sensors are extremely durable, even when exposed to fast pressure
peaks. They have been developed especially for the measurement of high pressures. The
Series 8 sensor for ranges 400…1000 bar uses a thicker glass feed through and a wire-bonded
A high-sensitivity piezoresistive silicon chip is used for pressure sensing. The chip is protected
against ambient influences by a stainless steel housing sealed with a concentrically corrugated diaphragm. The housing is filled with silicone oil for the transfer of the pressure from the
diaphragm to the sensing component.
All metal parts in contact with the pressure media are made of stainless steel AISI 316 L. The
fully welded housing is vacuum-tight. The connecting pins allow direct PCB mounting or can be
used for connecting cables.
Typical applications: Industrial processes, aviation electronics, servo controls,oil industry, robotics…
A Rugged Pressure Transducer
The piezoresistive chip immersed in silicone oil is welded into a housing made of stainless steel
AISI 316 L.
A nominal signal of 200 mV is obtained at a supply current of 1 mA for all standard pressure ranges.
Versions: Absolute and sealed gauge pressure. 9 nominal measurement ranges from 10 to
1000 bar. Different materials and oil fillings (see options verso).
