Merit Sensor 5000 Series

Merit Sensor 5000 Series

The 5000 series high pressure MEMS sensing elements from Merit SensorTM is ideal for OEM applications, offering available pressure ranges of between 1,000psi and 10,000psi. The sensors utilise a piezoresistive Wheatstone bridge in a design that anodically bonds glass to a chemically etched silicon diaphragm. This pressure sensor series offers an operating temperature of −40°C to +150°C and a full scale output range of 125mV to 300mv (depending on the pressure range). The 5000 series from Merit SensorTM products incorporate a proprietary Sentium® technology, developed to provide a best-in-class operating temperature range and superior stability.
