Merit Sensor RS Series

Merit Sensor RS Series

The RS uncompensated packaged pressure sensor series from Merit SensorTM is designed for applications of a wide range of pressures to the backside of the sensing element. With a pressure range from 0psi to 500psi with a full scale output of 75mV to 175mV (at 5V excitation) and either a backside gauge or backside absolute pressure type. The RS series from Merit SensorTM is a flexible platform with excellent media compatibility and utilises a piezoresistive Wheatstone bridge with a chemically etched silicon diaphragm.

  • Uncompensated packaged pressure sensor
  • Pressure ranges available 15psi, 100psi and 500psi
  • Pressure type of backside absolute or backside gauge options available
  • Operating temperature −40°C to +85°C
  • Typical full scale output (at 5V excitation) 75mV at 15psi, 150mV at 100psi and 175mV at 500psi
  • Impedance of 5kΩ (typical)
  • Suitable for liquid, air and gases (to be determined on an application by application basis)
  • Excellent performance in both constant current and constant voltage applications
  • Simple pressure source attachment and electrical connection
  • Designed for a soldered connection to wires, ribbon cable, flex strip, or surface mount pcb
