Merit Sensor RPD Series

Merit Sensor RPD Series

The RPD uncompensated packaged pressure sensor series from Merit SensorTM is designed for applications which require a wide range of pressures to the backside of the sensing element. This pressure sensor series offers a pressure range from 0psi to 500psi with an operating temperature range of −40°C to +85°C and a typical average full scale output of 150 mV. The RPD series from Merit SensorTM is a flexible platform with excellent media compatibility with its small, compact design is ideally suited for medical and industrial applications, utilising a piezoresistive Wheatstone bridge with a chemically etched silicon diaphragm.
